US DEA office to be set up

Guyana and the United States announced this morning the establishment of a US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) office here.

“I am … very pleased that we will be establishing a DEA office here at our embassy in Georgetown”, said outgoing US Ambassador Brendt Hardt at the Office of the President.

President Donald Ramotar stated that he welcomed the US congress’ decision to okay the funding for the project.

The DEA office has been sought here for many years to combat rampant drug trafficking and the activities of drug lords.
