President Irfaan Ali on Friday called the opening of the Amazonia Mall in Providence another crowning achievement by former Guyana and West Indies cricketer Ramnaresh Sarwan.
He said that the Mall will add to the development of the East Bank of Demerara and will serve the needs of the surrounding communities.
After the official launch, the President was given a tour of the building by Sarwan while he interacted with many of the business owners and special invitees.
Sarwan, who said that the vision of the Mall started a decade ago, promised to operate at a high standard.
The Mall has 25 stores, a food court with eight food vendors, including popular franchises such as KFC and Pizza Hut, the RS 53 Resto-bar and Lounge, and Caribbean Cinemas.
The movie theatre is equipped with six screens and a seating capacity of almost 1000.
