[www.inewsguyana.com] – On invitation by residents of Green Valley, Linden, Region Ten, Minister in the Ministry of Finance Juan Edghill held a successful engagement with residents of that community where he lauded them for their efforts to engage in dialogue.

The meeting, which was well attended, was held at the Fruits of the Valley Assembly of God church. In his brief remarks, the Minister said other Lindeners should follow suit with the culture of dialogue, which will ultimately prove beneficial to them.

“…The government, we believe in dialogue, we believe that discussion and dialogue is important to move Guyana forward, it is important for the resolution and managing of conflict.”

Reference was made of civil wars and other major conflicts around the world which all had to be resolved around a table, and through dialogue.

“I do believe that all of us here want the same thing, we want prosperity, safety, the welfare of our senior citizens and jobs…but where we end up with conflicts is the route that we choose to get there, the methods we employ.”

Minister Edhgill further acknowledged the fact that any community has its own views, political affiliation and opinion, all of which are equally important to that community’s development.

However while there are differences in opinions, he urged the residents see each other’s view, in spite of how different it may be, but in a constructive way that will bring development to their community.

Meanwhile Green Valley residents used the opportunity to raise several issues affecting them. Some of these issues include land titling, street lights, drainage and culverts, and proper roads. [Extracted and modified from GINA]
