Govt. seeks to explain its rejection of USAID funded project
The government is holding out that the reason behind the rejection of the 13.1 Million US dollar United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded project is simply because there was no consultation.
Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon said the project proposal presented to Guyana wanted to use public funds to support political parties and have USAID’s involvement in the making of policies.
Dr. Luncheon also noted that only last August the details of the proposed project were presented to the government. He noted a decision was taken by cabinet the following October since those sections highlighted were not accepted by Cabinet members.
