Georgetown, Guyana – (October 14, 2015) Reports coming from a Ministerial team, which recently wrapped up a visit to Toronto Canada, suggest that Guyanese living in that country, have shown a strong willingness to return home and be involved in the development process. This is according to Minister of Governance, Raphael Trotman who facilitated this week’s post Cabinet briefing.
The team was led by Prime Minister, Moses Nagamootoo and included; Minister of Business, Dominic Gaskin, Minister of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattan and Minister of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson. According to Minister Trotman, the diaspora has also expressed their interest in investing in development projects, especially in the area of infrastructural development.
Minister Trotman further detailed that the visit was a follow-up to one, which was made by President David Granger in September. “Cabinet noted the report of the high level of patriotic fervor that was evident during the visit and the fact that persons engaged were primarily interested in national issues,” Trotman said.
However, when asked about specific developmental projects, the Minister said that persons have registered their interest and a more detailed report will be presented to Cabinet shortly.
