–Regional Chairperson says ‘big plans’ in place for next year

WITH 2021 drawing closer to an end, the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) has reported that it has completed 98 per cent of its capital work and 89 per cent of its work under current expenditures.

“Despite the flooding, I am satisfied that we were able to achieve these projects and were able to deliver… we will do much more in 2022,” Regional Chairperson of the Region Two RDC, Vilma De Silva, said during the council’s statutory meeting, last Wednesday.

The Regional Chairperson highlighted some of the major projects which were undertaken, and those included the construction of a new Abram Zuil Secondary School, the construction of an agro-processing facility and a new family health clinic, and the upgrade of the Supenaam waterfront.
Development, she said, was recorded across all sectors, but it was just the beginning, as there were plans to further enhance the health sector and other important areas.

It was announced, in September, that two multi-specialty hospitals will be constructed at Suddie and Anna Regina. An area had already been identified in the township of Anna Regina for the construction of a hospital.

Owing to the projects that had been completed and those that were ongoing, De Silva is optimistic that the region will be among those driving nationwide growth.

She commended the various programme managers for their efforts in getting those projects out, and said she enjoys the support of Regional Vice-Chairman of the Region Two RDC, Humace Oodit and the Regional Executive Officer (REO), Susana Saywack.

While a lot had been done, De Silva believes farmers could have benefited more had there been favourable weather conditions. But she affirmed stakeholders that there will be more access dams and asphalted roads in 2022.

The RDC will be conducting community outreaches across the region in order to ascertain the issues affecting residents.
