[www.inewsguyana.com] – The ways in which Canada can continue to support Guyana’s sustainable development was one of the issues discussed when the country’s High Commissioner Dr. Nicole Giles paid a courtesy call to President David Granger on Wednesday, June 03.
Dr. Giles described their discussions as broad ranging, saying that, “We spoke about natural resources development, and governance issues associated with that, and we also spoke about the planned legislative agenda for the government.”
More importantly, she indicated that the streaming project that is funded by Canada that will cater for live sittings of the National Assembly being broadcast in real time via the internet, will begin officially next week.
High Commissioner Giles is due to depart Guyana in the near future as her tenure comes to an end. She described her term as “an incredibly rewarding tour of duty.” Dr Giles was accredited as her country’s High Commissioner in September 2013.
One aspect that has never ceased to amaze her, the ambassador said, is the “incredible talent of the people and the dedication of the people of Guyana to the country.”
She opined that this nation is one of the few places in the world where someone in her position has the opportunity to work and “feel that every day when you get up, you can have an impact, because you have a partner on the other side of the isle to work with, and that has certainly been one of the most rewarding things of my two years here. There is something to do every single day. There is always an opportunity to have an impact and make a positive contribution.”
Dr. Giles will be returning to Ottawa, the capital of Canada where she will be continuing her service with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development. [Extracted and modified from GINA]
