[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Indian Arrival Committee (IAC) has commended Prime Minister of India, Narendra Singh Modi for recognizing Guyana and the contributions made by President Donald Ramotar.
This recognition has led to Indian government bestowing on President Ramotar the “Pravasi Bharatiya Samaan” award for his immense contribution in the field of Public Service and for fostering ties between Guyana and India.
“The IAC believes that such recognition is significant and would serve to foster Guyana’s growing international image. It is therefore with a profound sense of pride that the IAC takes this opportunity to congratulate President Ramotar on being the recipient of this high and prestigious award,” IAC said in a media release.
The IAC also commended both President Ramotar and Prime Minister Modi for the various agreements reached during this latest visit to India.
“Included are the intention of the Indian government to build a world-class Information Technology research Centre here and the provision of funding to construct a major thoroughfare linking the East Coast and East Bank of Demerara.”
The Committee says, “Both of these projects would contribute positively to Guyana’s continuous development, and in this regard, the IAC welcomes these initiatives. The IAC is not unmindful of the tremendous assistance the Indian government has provided to Guyana over the years especially in the economic and cultural fields.”
