Gov’t, Region 10 Private Sector to identify, develop investment zone
President Irfaan Ali on Thursday announced that the Government will work in tandem with the private sector in Linden to identify potential areas of investment for the development of an Investment Zone.
This he believes will bolster economic growth opportunities in the region and ensure private sector involvement in the process.
President Ali made this announcement during discussions with various private sector groups at today’s Presidential Outreach in Linden. During the discussions the business representatives raised several issues, including a lack of access to land to further develop and grow their enterprises.
“What we need to do is sit with you, look at the potential area that investors and business people think is an ideal area and create an investment zone there and then to make those land available in a way that it can be asset value and can be prioritised. That is something that we should look at.”
The President added that when this area is identified it can be developed with the necessary infrastructure which will benefit all stakeholders.
He therefore assured that his Government will take a more collaborative approach in working with the private sector.
“We are going to put investment in, we are going to put opportunities here for wealth creation, job creation, and we are going to involve all of you in the private sector here.”
