PRESIDENT, Dr. Irfaan Ali, and members of the Cabinet will fan out across Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) over the next two days to engage residents and address issues which might exist.
Cabinet members will lead several teams which will engage directly with residents, women, youths, farmers, private sector representatives and the religious community.
Cabinet outreaches have been a hallmark of successive People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) administrations in keeping with its philosophy of people-centred governance that engages directly with citizens in their respective communities.
While delivering goods and services to taxpayers is a natural service of the Governance Continuum, the President and his Cabinet believe that it is equally important for those with direct responsibility for policies to witness their impact on the everyday lives of citizens, their families, and communities.
To this end, the activity in Region Two serves to foster an open and transparent relationship with citizens as stakeholders in the development process, through direct communication and feedback.
It also allows the policymakers to gain a first-hand account of on-the-ground developmental challenges in communities and enables them to craft appropriate interventions for short, medium and long-term solutions that ensure optimal benefits which are continuously accrued to citizens.
This fourth round of the Cabinet outreach since the PPP/C’s return to office is particularly crucial, coming on the heels of the devasting floods across the country that severely impacted people’s livelihoods and the continued national impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Residents of Region Two are asked to be prepared to engage the team fully in all matters of governance, particularly those which impact them directly. (Office of the President)
