He added that with developments and expansion in the various sectors, persons will be exposed to more economic opportunities.
Minister Dharamlall reiterated the government’s commitment to Guyanese for equal opportunities in every community.
Since the PPP/C took office in 2020, the village has benefitted from a number of initiatives including a $10 million economic grant from the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs, $25, 000 COVID-relief cash grant, and school cash grants, among others.
Meanwhile, the minister urged residents to get vaccinated, since it is the best way to overcome the ongoing pandemic.
