Parliament approves return of New Amsterdam to Kwakwani ferry service
-following AFC motion
Residents of Berbice can look forward to a return of the ferry service from New Amsterdam to Kwakwani by the end of this year after the National Assembly on Thursday unanimously approved a motion for the return of the service which was tabled by the Alliance for Change (AFC).
The motion moved by AFC Member of Parlia-ment Trevor Williams, lists the effects of not having the service and the impact it has had on communities that line the Berbice River. The resolve clause states that the National Assembly “immediately calls on the Government of Guyana to restore this service thereby reviving those communities and giving hope and stability to the many Guyanese who wish to venture into agricultural entrepreneurship.”
