Guyana Heads of Missions meet in Guyana
The Heads of Guyana’s various diplomatic missions overseas are in Guyana and will be here for the next week as they meet to discuss a number of issues related to the welfare of the country, its policies and programmes that are all foreign related. The last meeting was held in 2009 and is usually done in the form also of a briefing session on various positions that the Government would have. At the opening of the meeting this morning President Donald Ramotar encouraged the diplomats to engage members of the Guyanese community overseas more even as they spread the message of Guyana’s tourism product on the international front.
He spoke about the move to tackle the ongoing problem of narco trafficking which does not put Guyana in a good light. He said regional and international help is needed.
Just after the opening when asked about inadequate staff at some of the missions, the president said while its an issue that would have to be addressed, Guyana’s economic reality must not be dismissed.
The diplomats will be hosted at various meetings with local officials over the next coming days.
