The rice, sugar and fishing industries of New Amsterdam in Guyana, will receive fresh investment after President David Granger announced that the area will be an engine of growth, last night.
Granger told A Partnership for National Unity+ Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) supporters in the Peoples Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/Civic) stronghold of East Berbice-Corentyne, Region 6 that the area was too important to have been neglected by the opposition-controlled Regional Democratic Council.
“This region is too important to lose. This region is too important to put in the hands of the PPP/Civic. The APNU+AFC deserves to control Region Six, to deliver a good quality of life to the residents of this region,” Granger stated
“This region is too important to Guyana, is too important to the Caribbean, is too important for your children to put it back in the hands of the same people who made a mess of it,” Granger said.
He said the Government will also invest in the region’s children by providing them with free transport, textbooks and meals.
A new campus of Guyana University will also be built in New Amsterdam during the Decade of Development (2020-2029).
