Friendship and cooperation between the Guyana Defence Force and the Brazilian Armed Forces were strengthened again yesterday when the army received four computer systems, printers and other accessories from the Military Attaché to the Brazilian Embassy in Georgetown, Colonel Eudes Carvalho Dos Santos.
Speaking at the handing over ceremony, Colonel Eudes Carvalho said that the gift of the computers and equipment represented a commitment by the Brazilian Government to strengthen the operational capability of the Guyana Defence Force.
He expressed the hope that the equipment will be used to enhance the training and operations of the army’s Jungle Amphibious Training School (JATS).
He also said that a generator has been bought for JATS, and is being shipped to Guyana from the UK.
Accepting the computers and equipment on behalf of the GDF, Colonel, General Staff of the GDF, Colonel Mark Phillips, said that once again the Government and people of Brazil have delivered on their promise by providing the technological tools to enhance the work of the new JATS Command Centre at Makouria, which was handed over to the GDF a few weeks ago.
Colonel Phillips said that indeed the gifts by the Brazilian Armed Forces, including the generator which is en route to Guyana, are testament to the fact that the two military establishments are working in friendship and cooperation.
“On behalf of the Chief-of-Staff and officers and ranks of the GDF, I thank you, Col Eudes Carvalho and the Brazilian Armed Forces, for your continued support. The GDF thanks the Government and people of Brazil for their commitment to our development. You can be assured that these resources will be utilized to help to produce soldiers of whom we can be proud.”
The computers and accessories are valued at $1.2M, and include four systems complete with 22” LCD monitors; four HP Office Jet All-in-One printers; four 550 VA battery backup systems; 600 watts Tripplite stabilizers, and four complete computer workstations.
