Minister of State, Joseph Harmon on Tuesday met with the Canadian High Commissioner to Guyana, Pierre Giroux at the Ministry of the Presidency during which the diplomat related that the University of Calgary, based in Canada, will soon dispatch a team to Guyana to meet with the Government for discussions on the setting up of the Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF) for the Natural Resources and the Oil and Gas Sector.
In a release the Ministry of the Presidency said, High Commissioner Giroux also disclosed that the team will undertake a study of the legislative policies in place to see how best they can be improved to suit the Oil and Natural resources sectors. Further, the Government of Canada, through the High Commissioner, has offered a training programme, which would benefit Permanent Secretaries and Heads of State Agencies in areas such as department management, best practices and accountability.
Minister Harmon expressed his thanks on behalf of the Government for this gesture, noting that the programme will go hand in hand with the mandate of the Public Service Staff College, slated to be opened later this year. “This offer comes at a time when we are about to establish a Public Service Staff College and so we would like to explore this opportunity. We want to have well trained public servants who understand that they need to serve the public and do so well,” Minister Harmon said. The two officials have committed to regular meetings to discuss other possible areas of collaboration.
