President Dr Irfaan Ali told this year’s Youths in Natural Resources Apprentices Programme that by 2030 they will be living in the best city in the world.
The Head of State made this statement during his remarks to the group of young people who completed the programme organised by the Ministry of Natural Resources last night at State House in Georgetown.
He told them that their generation will have the responsibility of building, shaping and inheriting a country that is forged in unity, strength and purpose—a country that is ‘One Guyana’.
The recent training, he added, also gave the youngsters the opportunity to see and appreciate the beauty of their country.
The Youths in Natural Resources Apprenticeship Programme was launched in July of 2022 with 50 participants between the ages of 16-25.
The young Guyanese were exposed to various sectors under the purview of the Ministry of Natural Resources, including mining, logging, and the petroleum sector.
The Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Vickram Bharrat and other officials from his Ministry attended the meet and greet.
