PM Nagamootoo hails Guyana’s advancement on Press Freedom Index

DPI, GUYANA, Thursday, April 26, 2018

Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo has lauded Guyana’s upward movement on the World Press Freedom Index. In a brief comment before entering the National Assembly today, he said that it was evidence that the press in Guyana is “free, open, plural and kicking.”

Guyana’s ranking now stands at 55 as compared to 60 last year.

The World Press Freedom Index analyzes the media environment in 180 countries each year.

This administration has moved to expand press freedom in other areas of community broadcasting, notably in the hinterland regions. President David Granger and the ministers of Government have over time reaffirmed the Coalition Government’s commitment to ensuring freedom of the press.
