Youth group meets with AG Williams

DPI, Guyana, Friday, April 5, 2019

Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) ‘Move On Guyana’ met with the Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Basil Williams SC., on Thursday, to express their interest in having youths represented in Parliament.

The Attorney General applauded the NGO on its steps.

“Anything that would contribute to raising the consciousness of our youths will be supported by our government because education is key. Back in my time, it was the key, and it still is key.”

On the note of Guyanese benefiting from the oil wealth, the Attorney General emphasised the importance of the nation’s youth being educated. “Opportunities abound in Guyana, and we are on the course of transformation, and we will need more skills and people than we imagine.”

Discussions were held with Dr. John Anderson, Vice Chairman of ‘Move On Guyana’, who spoke about benefits being matched and among other areas.

The NGO is in support of helping to create better opportunities for young people in business and private enterprise, as well as promoting youth representation throughout all levels of decision making in the government and the private sector.

‘Move On Guyana’ consists of 17 members and has been in existence for one month.
