Technical consultants for EU rice programme arrive
Consultants for the technical assistance component of the European Union (EU) rice competitiveness programme have arrived in Guyana and will be based here for the next two years.

According to a Government Information Agency (GINA) press release, under the programme, 11.7 million euros would be spent to execute several activities aimed at developing the local rice industry.

And apart from the technical services component, a financial facility will be established to provide working capital and investment in the industry.

Other components include repairing pumps at Dawa and Golden Fleece, Region Two (Pomeroon/Supenaam) and training farmers and other stakeholders. Team leader George Murray and Institutional Strengthening expert, Graham Garrod from AGRIFOR Consulting, a Belgian consultancy firm, will be based in Guyana for the two years.

On May 18, the team paid a courtesy call on Minister of Agriculture (ag), Harripersaud Nokta who reaffirmed government's commitment to the rice industry and pledged the ministry's support for the continued development of the sector. He pointed out that issues such as drainage and irrigation, productivity and research development are of great importance to the overall improvement of the industry.

The release said Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture, Dr Dindyal Permaul and Programme Coordinator for the Guyana Rice Project Management Unit (GRPMU), Nigel Dharamlall were present at the meeting.

Murray said his team will work closely with the ministry and other stakeholders for the duration of the project.
