Paved road to Guyana.

Authorities in Suriname gave the go ahead for asphalting a road to the Canawaima Ferry terminal connecting Suriname and neighboring Guyana, reports Caribbean Net News (April 23, 2007). Economic activities such as agriculture will benefit since there are numerous rice and cattle farms alongside the 32 km stretch of road in Suriname's western district Nickerie. Business and travel were being interrupted regularly due to bad conditions of the road during the rainy season. Minister of Planning and Development Cooperation, Rick van Ravenswaay said the 13.2-million-euro project is being financed by the European Commission from the 9th European Development Fund. EU representative Richard van der Horst said the project is part of a larger package, including improvement of the Nieuwe Haven, Suriname's main port and the port in Nickerie.
