THE 10 Forward Civic Group in Linden, Region 10, will be hosting an information fair and town hall session today.
According to a press release, the ‘info’ fair will feature exhibitions from several ministries and their agencies on citizens’ empowerment initiatives that could be of direct benefit to residents of Linden and the wider region.
Exhibitors will be drawn from Labour, Agriculture, Housing, Public Service, Human Services, Youth, Sports and Culture, and Tourism, among other Ministries.
The highlight of the event will be a town hall session with the Attorney-General’s Chambers to address the legislative framework for hemp cultivation in Region 10.
The Ministry of Agriculture will also engage upper-level students, business persons, farmers and other interested residents on opportunities in agriculture, particularly in hemp cultivation, and value-added production.
The town hall will also feature an open day session with Minister of Public Works Bishop Juan Edghill, who holds political responsibility for the region. This session will seek to address some of the issues residents are facing that require direct intervention from the government.
The day’s events, which will be held at the Egbert Benjamin Centre, on Republic Avenue, Mackenzie, will commence with the town hall engagement at 10:00 hrs.
