[www.inewsguyana.com] – Minister of State, Joseph Harmon on Friday, July 03 met with Project Manager of the E-Governance Project, Alexei Ramotar at the project’s Barrack and Duke Street Kingston operations.
A press release from the Ministry of Presidency noted that the Minister was given a tour of the office and was updated on projects and operations. He asked about the Fibre Optic Cable Project where Ramotar emphasized that about 40% of the cable has been damaged and it is now too expensive to fix.
Also present at the meeting were Project Control Manager Rosco Greene and Government’s Adviser on E-Governance Mr. Floyd Levi who will be working closely with Ramotar and the project.
During the brief meeting Minister Harmon urged Ramotar and his staff to continue to work hard, and Ramotar expressed satisfaction with what he heard from the minister on the way forward, the press release noted.
Ramotar and Harmon had a rocky start to their relationship, after the Minister of State had told the media that Ramotar, who is the son of Former President, Donald Ramotar, did not show up to work since the APNU+AFC government took office.
But the younger Ramotar had denied the claims and told iNews that he was not absent from work.
