Skerrit lead DLP Government says it is confident a geothermal plant will be built by the end of 2019
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit says he is confident that his Government will construct a geothermal plant by the end of 2019, because of the strong and growing support they continue to receive from interested financiers and development partners.
In his 2016 Christmas message, PM Skerrit said "We expect this will have the effect of lowering electricity rates to consumers and increase the competitiveness of the productive sectors of our economy."
He stated further that in the New Year, citizens can look forward to an increase in the pace of construction activity, and the opportunity for jobs, as the rebuilding of the country enters a new phase.
The DLP Government also said it will be looking to launch a pilot health insurance program for young mothers and their children. Skerrit said, "It is our intention to use the knowledge and experience we will gain from this program, to design a national health insurance program".
