President engages experts on green agenda
(MOTP) Georgetown, Guyana – (September 15, 2016) President David Granger, earlier today, met with the Chairman of the Guyana Society for Biodiversity and Ecosystems (GSBE), Dr. Patrick Williams and Programme Specialist at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Dr. Patrick Chesney to discuss how the country’s ‘green’ agenda can be furthered and how the Guiana Shield can add value to the work of the Government. The meeting was held at the Ministry of the Presidency.
“From every point of view, it profits us to have in place a strong, coherent green strategy,” the President said.
The green agenda is one of the issues which the Head of State will be discussing at bilateral meetings on the side-lines of the 71st Regular Session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly next week in New York.
Dr. Williams assured the President that his Government will continue to receive the necessary technical support as it advances its green policies.
