[www.inewsguyana.com] – Heads of Guyana’s Missions overseas, who are currently here for a meeting on Monday with President Donald Ramotar, were given a firsthand view of some of the country’s booming housing schemes by Minister of Housing and Water, Irfaan Ali on Saturday, August 09.

The diplomats who were joined by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Carolyn Rodrigues- Birkett were given the opportunity to visit various housing schemes along the East Bank of Demerara, to experience the transformation that is taking place on that corridor. The schemes visited included Providence, Eccles, and Perseverance.

They were also able to interact with some of the residents who allowed them to enter their homes and have a view of what they looked like on the inside.

The Mission Heads who were overwhelmed to learn about the heights that this sector has reached were also given a brief of the projects undertaken by the Ministry to aid individuals in becoming home owners.

They were educated on the core homes, the young professionals’ homes, as well as the turn key homes and the measures that have been put in place to allow individuals to take up ownership.

Minister Ali explained to the diplomats that these projects were funded by the private sector. He further explained that due to the occupancy rate in these schemes, the roads are being developed using asphaltic concrete, which will allow them to have a longer life span.

He also noted that the development of the schemes has trickledown effects as they allow for small contractors to develop themselves and form companies, and also provides job opportunities for hundreds of Guyanese among others.

Minister Ali, also jokingly pointed out, the Antigua and Barbuda’s newly appointed Prime Minister, Gaston Browne in a letter said to him that he visited Guyana and took the housing programme into his manifesto and then won the elections.

He added that Prime Minister of St Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr Ralph Gonsalves who also visited was very impressed with the local housing programme.

The diplomats were also given a view of the Mocha access road, East Bank Demerara, where Minister Ali explained the project to them, and pointed out that a lot of thought was given to its construction.

  1. nagamootoo sees himself as a good gaff maan. but he didn,t know he gaff about no-confidence motion would a get he trapped.but he can’t back-back now…pride… he problem gon really begin when he boss-man ramjattan decide to divide the two seats they win at the next election between heself and nigel hughes. my bet is that once is a free and fair election they gon only win two seats-one full seat and one mek-up.guyana will then develop full speed with many more housing schemes ,cheaper electricity ,more industries and so on.

  2. Plus Ramjattan and Nagamootto sit back and relax and enjoyed Indians being beaten robbed sexually molested by thugs on Agricola Public Road thorough theur AFC instigator comrade Hughes. Ramjattan and Nagamoottoo family and close friends were no why near this atrocity they caused..

  3. This is what is eating away at Ramjattan and Nagamoottoo Roopnarie and some other spiteful hateful Indians in Guyana who want to put PNC to rule..
    They cant stand progress under PPP/C since PPP kicked their ass out..
    Then those two powerhouse Indians who owned news papers who peddling their hate their spite…Ramjattan didnt want the Marriott Hotel built because his buddy pal who owned the Peg Hotel is a big AFC donor…
    Ramjattan could not stop the Marriott for his good buddy pal..
    Guyanese must ask themselves if this is a reason for Ramjattan to call no confidence against a democratically elected Government..
