Guyana to participate in Cayman Islands rugby tournament with government assistance
Published on October 16, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (GINA) -- On Monday, minister of culture, youth and sport, Dr Frank Anthony handed over a cheque to the Guyana Rugby Association valued at GY$1million (US$4,888), which will be used to assist the team to participate in an upcoming rugby tournament in the Cayman Islands.

Anthony noted that the decision to support the team was simple since its members have represented Guyana well in several competitions and have a successful track record. The minister also expressed his hope that corporate Guyana will get on board and give support.

He added that the ministry will also be working with the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) to waive taxes incurred for the trip.

Head of the National Sports Commission, Neil Kumar, emphasised that in paying more attention to sports development, the ministry is working with national sports associations. Key to these relationships is transparency which in Kumar’s view is demonstrated by the rugby and power lifting associations.

He noted that the National Sports Commission has confidence in the rugby association and will continue to offer support.

President of the Guyana Rugby Association, Peter Green, expressed appreciation for the ministry’s support for both rugby and power lifting.
