Fisherfolk to get one off cash grant


His Excellency Dr Irfaan Ali announced a one-off grant of $150,000 each for fisherfolk, this afternoon, to help them during their “difficult times”.
Fishing has taken a global hit with a decline in catches and Guyana has been no exception.
The President, who made the announcement at Windsor Forest on the West Coast of Demerara, said that the grant was made after a complete assessment of the needs of persons in the industry—who amount to over 5000.
“You have a Government that is responsible. A Government that will continue to work with you hand-in-hand.”
He also stated that his Government is ready to work with persons to use marine cages for aquaculture development.
