50th Independence Anniversary Arch is a symbol of nationhood…. President Granger

Georgetown, Guyana – (May 20, 2016) President David Granger, today, committed to ensuring that Georgetown is restored to its former glory and that the capital city will regain its reputation as one of the Caribbean’s most picturesque and pleasant places for residents and visitors, in his address at the unveiling of the 50th Independence Anniversary Arch.

The G$20M Arch was financed wholly by Banks DIH Limited as an Independence anniversary gift to the nation. It was designed by Mr. Vaniar Gutierrez of the Ministry of Public Infrastructure and fabricated by VSH Steel with hot dipped galvanised and welded steel pipes. 

After giving a historical account of the founding of Georgetown over 230 years ago, President Granger said the capital city is now being refashioned and renovated and that the arch is a symbol of hope for the future. It serves as a permanent landmark delineating the southern entrance into, and exit out of, the nation’s capital and also marks the southernmost boundary of our city.   Read more
