From Thursday until next Saturday, the Banderas Room in the National Palace of Culture in the capital will host local authorities from Sacatepequez and Solola (Friday), Guatemala and Retalhuleu (Saturday).
The meetings, through five technical schedules, make it possible to know the progress of the projects under development, as well as provide continuity and support in the planning and implementation of works this year and proposals for 2023.
Priorities focus on infrastructure, health, education, environment, water and sanitation, and economic development, according to Alvaro Diaz, head of the Presidency’s Planning Secretariat.
Diaz explained that they expect to receive at least 3,200 applications and so far the participation of mayors has reached 91 percent.
On June 2, President Alejandro Giamatti welcomed workshops with representatives from Petén Province.
The President said at that time that I put at your disposal my government office where you could consult and discuss presidential commitments and your requests, in order to achieve better results for the benefit of the Guatemalan people.
In his view, presidential tours allow the executive branch to approach local governments and work together to strengthen municipalities.
In addition to Petén, the Isabal, San Marcos, Chiquimula and Progreso salads (June 2-4) have already participated.
They were followed by Gutiapa, Totonicapan, Quiche, Zacapa, Chimaltenango and Escuintla (June 9-11).
Talks take place Thursday through Friday and will run through July 1.
