Government has strengthened transparency in the Ministry of Finance with the relaunch and revamped Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Loan webpage.
The webpage is now accessible to members of the public who can visit the site and access all the information relating to the $65 million loan from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
The site consists of monthly reports which break down the phases a project may take and which shows the budget allocated for each project.
Also, present upon first glance are important questions about the loan, which when clicked gives a comprehensive response via an online brochure.
Director of Projects in the Ministry of Finance, Dr Drexel Glasgow said the webpage is user-friendly and residents will be able to give their input on projects through the completion of the online contact form. He further said all concerns will be “expeditiously” addressed.
Dr Glasgow said the venture is a step forward in keeping residents informed on the management of all projects relating to the loan. This, he said, was one of the conditions to accepting the loan.
“We made a consorted effort to centralise all the information about the loan programme from the government’s site in one spot that will be palatable and friendly for the users,” said Dr Glasgow.
The newly revamped webpage is found HERE.
The loan programme is to assist in rebuilding social and economic infrastructures which were impacted by natural disasters of 2017. These include transportation, water and sewerage, education and national security sectors.
