Tuesday July 5, 2005, Castries: Yet another
one of Grenada's international friends is making moves to assist the Hurricane
ravaged country. On Saturday July 2nd, 2005 Prime Minister Mitchell met
with a delegation from Italy as a follow up to a meeting which took place
about one month ago. Last month Prime Minister Mitchell met with Italian
delegates and asked them to look at special assistance to Grenada. This
request was acted upon and the Italian officials reported to Prime Minister
Mitchell that his request was conveyed to Government officials at the highest
level in Rome and had received favourable response.
Grenada is seeking help from Italy for
housing, educational development and scholarships, and technology to assist
in the Caribbean Knowledge Learning Network project.
Prime Minister Mitchell told the delegates
that although the Grenada Government had made tremendous strides in assisting
Grenadians repair their homes there was still an enormous amount of work
to be done. He told them that Grenada's people still needed lots of help
and thanked them for following up on his request so speedily.
