With the lack of financial closure delaying the Amaila Falls Hydro Electric Project, World Bank Country Representative Giorgio Valentini yesterday disclosed that Guyana never approached the bank.Valentini yesterday met with members of the local media in a bid to increase cooperation between the media and that entity.He was asked about the World Bank’s position on the project, given the fact that as part of its support in Guyana in the short term it will focus on Climate Change.“We never received a request from Guyana,” said Valentini,LeBron James Cavaliers Jersey, while explaining that the World Bank would only get involved in a project if it is asked to.He said that following receipt of a request, the bank would conduct an assessment and necessary studies. The magnitude of the project in turn would determine the length of time for execution.President Bharrat Jagdeo, in November last year, told media operatives that the Amaila Falls hydropower project would likely commence by the middle of this year, and is currently awaiting the approval of loans from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and China Development Bank.“We are looking at the loans for the project and we’re looking at the IDB and China Development Bank for that.
