She told the National Assembly yesterday, while bringing members up to speed on the proposed project, that on December 5, 2012, Guyana and Brazil had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on infrastructure development with the aim of stimulating projects in four key areas of interest.
It was suggested that if there is positive movement with the road and hydropower development, there will be automatic interest in the port by the private sector.
According to Minister Birkett, efforts at joint collaboration between Guyana and Brazil are not new, having commenced soon after the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1968. She said that several Memoranda of Understanding have since been signed by successive Governments.
Those to be consulted will include the communities in the Middle and Upper Mazaruni. Government will also be briefing the media.
