Conference Centre handing over set for Thursday

The Chinese government would hand over the Guyana International Conference Centre (GCCI) building at Liliendaal, East Coast Demerara, in an inauguration ceremony set for Thursday.

While the building looks almost ready, landscaping of the compound should start by March month-end.

The Ministry of Public Works would sign a completion certificate signalling its satisfaction with the work done prior to the issuing of the 'Handing Over' certificate.

Clement Rohee, Minister of Foreign Trade and Inter-national Cooperation, said at a press conference in the main conference hall of the centre yesterday that during the sixth meeting of the Oversight Committee for the facility a number of issues were satisfactorily examined including completion of landscaping the compound, outstanding debts for contractors, and remaining furniture for the centre.

Walter Willis, member of the oversight committee, told Stabroek News that advertisements for the landscaping work should be out by the first week in March with the contract being awarded by the end of the month.
