[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Ministry of Public Infrastructure is planning to rehabilitate the now defunct Mazaruni Dockyards and will do so with the acquisition of a new complement of staff and equipment.

According to a press statement, Minister within the Ministry of Public Infrastructure Annette Ferguson visited the area and it was concluded that there is an immediate need to resuscitate and revitalize the operations of that facility. 

“The Dockyard is the primary location for the repair of vessels that ply our numerous riverain routes. It was also determined that viability can only be ensured by the acquisition of new equipment, staff enhancement and a complete overhaul of the facility to which she has made commitment,” the release stated.

Ferguson outlined several initiatives that would see the revamping of the Transport and Harbors Departments across the country.

 “Most immediate is the regeneration of major stellings, like the one at Bartica, to see it become a functioning hub for traffic both for tourism and commerce. Bartica is to be made a township by April 2016. Additionally, there will be the upgrade of all vessels within the fleet, training and enhancement of the human resource potential, and the rehabilitation of structures and facilities to bring the operations to the optimum level of functioning,” the statement indicated.

  1. The entire marine sector needs revamping money and expertise will definitely play a vital role consultation with people who have good avdise and experience can be beneficial we have more than 50 years experience in this business, a claim few can make.

  2. Minister visits dockyard and then make statement of its resuscitation.
    These ministers need to do their research before they make statements.
    In public policy management the needs are what matters, then the financials.
    These ministers may have good intentions but the way thy put themselves over makes them look novice like.
    Lets start with one at a time? When last the Minister was at the big market wharf?

  3. Luadible plans Minister but you need not only to talk but to give a clear indication on how you are going to finance that ambitious project. With the current administration not presenting any budget as yet, the talk of reductions in income tax and VAT and increased salaries for the public sector workers, the country will become bankrupt before the next election
    So far the current administration has been dipping into the treasury which was left full to the brim by the previous administration and nothing is going back in. They will have to resort to printing more and more notes, flooding the economy with valueless paper money and inflation skyrocketing. That will take country just where it was prior to 1992
