Todd leads delegation to Suriname to ‘advance areas of cooperation’
Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Hugh Todd, on Saturday, led an official delegation to Suriname to further discuss advancing areas of cooperation through the Strategic Dialogue and Cooperation Platform (SCDP).
The delegation included Minister of Public Works, Juan Edghill and Minister of Agriculture, Zulfikar Mustapha.
According to a press release from the Foreign Ministry, the Strategic Dialogue and Cooperation Platform was signed by the two Heads-of-State last November, during an official State visit to Suriname. Saturday’s working visit served to further streamline plans between the Government of Guyana and Suriname.
“The Ministers discussed several areas within the framework of the SDCP, among those were infrastructure and transport, agriculture and security. Since the signing of the SDCP both countries have been actively engaging to advance the programme through the establishment of several working groups including infrastructure, agriculture, security, health and trade,” the release noted.
It added, “The meeting paves the way in preparation of an Official State visit of the President of Suriname H.E Chan Santoki to Guyana.”
