Delegation from Suriname Parliament due on Thursday

In keeping with the commitment made by the previous speaker of the National Assembly Hari Narayen Ramkarran to invite the Speaker of the Surinamese Parliament, present Speaker Raphael Trotman has invited Dr. Jennifer Geerlings-Simons to visit the Parliament of Guyana during the month of October, a release from Parliament Office stated today.

Geerlings-Simons together with a delegation of eleven has accepted the invitation and will be visiting Guyana from the 24th to 26th October, 2013.
