ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, MONDAY 24 JULY, 2017– GIS: Canada’s Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for International Development has commended the government of Grenada for what she calls a tremendous example of social engagement.

Mrs. Cecelia Caesar Chavannes, a Grenadian by birth, who was on a brief visit to her homeland, said it is always wise for a government to take into account the needs and views of all sides.

Social Partners, which include Churches, Trade Unions and the business community, are all on board in the process of nation building in Grenada.

"We appreciate that Grenada does this, we appreciate that there is this active civil engagement that is something that I think Grenadians should be very proud of because it means that there is a consulting of effort to ensure that their voice is truly reflecting in Government and most importantly reflecting in policy" said the Parliamentary Secretary

Mrs. Caesar Chavannes says government’s method of all inclusiveness and reporting regularly on its work is being recognized all over.

"Government’s commitment to hosting town halls and reporting the results of policies and programmes did not go un-notice and I’ve heard about it during this trip as well", said the Parliamentary Secretary.

“I don’t know if it’s because I insist on telling people that I am Grenadian or if it’s because people are watching what Grenada is doing as an example but whatever it is keep doing it because it is recognized and appreciated”.
