Regional Chairman invites investors to Region 10

first_img“We are open for business in terms of persons who are interested in investing in our agricultural sector in Region 10.”These were the sentiments of Regional Chairman Renis Morian, who issued a passionate plea for persons at home or abroad to invest within the Region.He said that the opportunities were significant and noted the importance of persons grabbing the opportunities immediately. He noted that while Region 10 has traditionally been, and continues to be, viewed as a mining community, there were opportunities within the agricultural sector to aid in food production and reduce the cost for food.“This is critically important as it would help in reducing our food bill, thus bettering the community,” the Regional Chairman said.“We at the Region are inviting persons who may be reading about this to come forward as we are prepared and ready to have people investing in this initiative,” Morian said.He disclosed that the land that has been made available is 4500 acres stressing that there is adequate land for all those who have an interest.He noted that there were a number of persons who live overseas that have expressed interest in investing in Guyana and for this reason, he said he has been pushing Region 10, noting that given the vast available land, he was inviting them to invest.“I want everyone to know that Region 10 is open to invest in agriculture; therefore, all can apply as we have adequate land for persons to develop the region,” the Regional Chairman said.He revealed that the Lands and Surveys Commission has already surveyed the land, stressing that everything has been put in place so that the Region can begin distribution.“We have 4500 acres available so what I am advising persons to [do is] apply and while the application is being made to Lands and Surveys department, the approval is granted from the Regional Chairman’s office in Region 10,” Morian stated.He, however, expressed grave concerns over the questionable processing of applications. The Regional Chairman said that a number of applications are coming to his office for his approval and signature, but these applications only have the amount of land and location.This, he explained, is cause for concern, stressing that one person can have several pieces, because there is no way of identifying who the lands would have been given to.“These applications do not have no name just the location and amount, and I have refused to sign those because what I have discovered often times coming from Lands and Surveys is that there is duplicity, as there are times when one person’s name appeared thrice and we have had to send it back to them,” he added.He noted that the current system allowed for mismanagement and corruption, declaring that under his stewardship, these acts would not be entertained.“I am not putting my signature to those applications like that without the critical details as I don’t want trouble and nobody will case me to get into any trouble,” the evidently frustrated Regional Chairman said.The Regional Chairman in reiterating his invitation urged all who may be interested to contact his office or the Lands and Surveys department, noting that irrespective of the crop or size of land desired, they would be considered.last_img
