External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, who is on his first official trip to Guyana, visited the site of the ongoing East Bank-East Coast Road Linkage project along with Guyana’s minister of public works Deodat Indar. Indian infrastructure company Ashoka Buildcon Limited is developing the East Bank-East Coast Road Linkage Project.
Ashoka Buildcon in a statement said Jaishankar during his visit interacted with the workers and the senior staff including those of the company.
“Delivered by India is a growing global infra reality. Paid a site visit to the East Bank-East Coast Road Linkage Project along with Minister of Public Works Deodat Indar.
“Interacted with workers and senior staff. Impressed by their enthusiasm,” he said in a tweet.
East Bank-East Coast Road Linkage project is located in Georgetown, which is the capital of Guyana, in South America.
According to the company statement, the new road link will serve as a corridor for communities on the East Bank.
It will also provide a bypass from the city, where most traffic flows daily, resulting in massive congestion and major delays.
