※Industry is sitting on an economic time bomb§- Economist Dr. Clive Thomas By Kiana Wilburg The more local economists continue to analyze the accounts of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo), the more they realize that the sugar industry is in a financially dreadful state.EconomistDr. Clive ThomasDr. Clive Thomas in an interview with Kaieteur News on Sunday related, that the industry needs to be purged and its deficiencies addressed from several areas,Cheap Authentic Jerseys, apart from a managerial perspective.Recently, the board members of GuySuCo and the entity*s CEO were forced to step down after years of failing to nurse the ailing industry back to ※good health§.But the condition seems to have gotten worse.Dr. Thomas said the industry has now found itself ※buried§ in excess of $90B in debt until 2017. Based on an overview of GuySuCo*s accounts, he said that it was just less than this for the period 2012 to 2014. Dr. Thomas said in no uncertain terms that, ※the sugar industry is now sitting on an economic time bomb.§The economist said that he had warned about this in a series of previous columns he had dedicated to examining and proving that the industry was at a point of no return.※But my findings were either too alarming for some to digest or were just completely ignored. People should not allow themselves to be left in bewilderment when they hear certain things coming out at this point; like the industry being unable to pay its workers. I had pointed to many of these before,NFL Jerseys China Cheap,§ Dr. Thomas reflected.He added that he was not the least bit surprised when it was announced that the coffers of the industry hadn*t enough money to pay some of its workers.The economist said that GuySuCo has become an entity which ※produces less and less and it is costing more and more§, while its sales decline.He posited that GuySuCo*s survival now depends on direct official bailouts, while it unceasingly increases its indebtedness. He said that this quite frankly is unsustainable.In previous columns in 2011 and 2012,Cheap Jerseys From China, Dr. Thomas had addressed several important topics, in some detail, which revealed that in comparison to the rapid global growth in production and exports of sugar, stagnation and decline have been the hallmarks of Guyana*s sugar industry. These have lasted over three decades.He had also addressed a set of strategies designed by the authorities to turn around the sugar industry. These strategies are mainly the Sugar Modernization Project (SMP) and the later Turnaround Plan (Blue-print) initiated by GuySuCo*s Interim Board in 2009.The SMP includes the construction of the Skeldon Factory along with its related Berbice agricultural fields restructuring, as well as the construction of the Enmore Packaging Plant.Dr. Thomas reminded that over the decades, sugar*s contribution to GDP, export earnings, and tax revenue has fallen well behind that of other traditional commodity sectors such as gold, rice, and bauxite,cheap jerseys cc, as well as the services sector.He added, ※I had earlier columns which also looked at the money that was given to the sugar industry by the European Union (EU).§In that series dedicated to the sugar industry he had said, ※I had calculatedly treated this as conscience money paid by Britain and the EU as compensation for their unilateral revocation of the EU-African-Caribbean-Pacific countries (ACP) Sugar Protocol, from which they had previously drawn considerable benefit.§※Large sums directed to Guyana*s sugar industry by the EU have to be seen in the light of the additional massive bailouts provided by the Government of Guyana to GuySuCo in recent years.§Dr. Thomas said that as worldwide experience has shown, it is hard,Wholesale China NFL Jerseys, politically, for governments to stop providing unwarranted subsidies to state industries. He said, however, that it is far worse for them to yield to those interests that are driving the need for the subsidies.He emphasized that the misallocation of national resources, implicit in this posture, is inevitably bad for everyone economically, but it will eventually also carry a devastating political cost, given the size and configuration of the sugar industry in Guyana*s political economy.Economist Rawle Lucas had also recently added his voice to the subject matter.He said that one should be concerned about the state of GuySuCo*s coffers given that the Finance Minister, Winston Jordan, disclosed that the Consolidated Fund is in overdraft by some $60B.He defined the Consolidated Fund to be a reflection of the total sum of money that is collected or received by the Government of Guyana. The official account is kept at the Bank of Guyana. The government uses the money to meet expenditures on the goods and services that it provides to the public.The financial commentator said that while the Consolidated Fund is the most important account of the government, GuySuCo is its most important enterprise especially when one considers that it employs about 16,000 persons and contributes about four per cent to domestic output.※Given what we heard about the $16 billion debt of GuySuCo, the Consolidated Fund has probably seen no money from this entity in a long time. Instead, GuySuCo has been a perennial drag on the hard-earned money of the taxpaying public,§ Lucas opined.He said that in the case of GuySuCo, the impact of this type of behaviour on the taxpayers of Guyana is hard.※In the first instance, the taxpayers gave annual subsidies to GuySuCo…What GuySuCo consciously did was transfer about three times the amount of the subsidies to consumers overseas. When Guyanese take account of the money that they get from the European Union (EU), GuySuCo still ends up transferring twice as much taxpayers* money overseas.§Under these conditions, Lucas opined that GuySuCo is doing absolutely nothing for Guyana, since it is also taking a portion of its foreign earnings to pay the subsidies of foreign consumers.He said that without a restructured GuySuCo, it is impossible to see how the new government could reduce Value Added Tax and pay higher wages to public servants,Cheap MLB Jerseys, both of which have the potential to help the economy grow faster and stronger.He said, too, that the new administration also has to take a pragmatic position on the sugar industry.Lucas said that the malpractice of holding the majority of the population to ransom needs to be discontinued.? He reminded that the contribution of sugar to the economy has fallen significantly. He said that gold, other agricultural crops and rice have all surpassed sugar in importance to the Guyana economy. At the same time, gold, rice and bauxite bring in far more foreign exchange than sugar.※The sugar industry must undergo radical change if this country is to move forward, since GuySuCo can hardly qualify as a ※going concern§. The taxpayers did their part on May 11 and it is now up to the government to do the rest,§ he concluded.

Mocha minibus operators decided to strike yesterday to demonstrate their frustration over the ※appalling§ road conditions. The operators said that the road condition has severely affected their trade. They are calling upon the Works Ministry to ensure that the road is suitably mended.Yesterday,Nike Air Max 2018 Release, commuters who had been stranded along the roadways were being facilitated by a minibus that operates in a nearby village. Some machines were placing ※crush and run§ on the road.A section of deplorable road※We are not working. Most of the vehicles are not going out the village; we strike three times in the past six months. Two cars even run off the road over a two-month period but right now it is overbearing to a point where you just can*t drive,NFL Jerseys China,§ one operator said.※Is only when we strike or block off the road then they does come grade the road and throw crush and run pun it. But when the rain fall and de big truck drive up and down is back to square one. The holes in road again,§ another said.Kevin Thomas a private car operator said: ※We are burning extra gas to reach the road head and every time I carry my car to service I got to pay additional money for damaged parts.§Thomas noted that in the event of emergencies persons are being put at a disadvantage because it is time consuming to manoeuvre the holes in the thoroughfare to get to the main road.The operators claimed that the last protest action against the road conditions resulted in an altercation between residents and workers attached to the Works Ministry.They said that the strike will continue and they vow that their actions will intensify if the issue is not addressed. The angry residents and minibus operators together criticized work being done to fix the road.They said that Minister of Works,Cheap Jerseys From China, Robeson Benn,Cheap NFL Shop, had promised to maintain the road and put temporary measures in place while trucks traversed the area to facilitate the nearby housing development projects.However,Brandon Doughty Dolphins Jersey, the operators said that the mechanism used to fix the road can be considered ※a lick and a promise.§ The minibus operators said that they had patched the holes in the roads in the past but that the present state of the road will require skilled work.※When they throw that stuff on the road the dust affecting us. We can*t see when we driving. Passengers complain about respiratory problems; that crush and run does only last two days and de road get even worse. Some passengers even vomit with the shake up going out to the road,Jerseys NFL Wholesale,§ a driver stated.The residents said that even the roads in the village are in a deplorable state but the council never attempted to fix them. The work done to address problems in the village is basically self-help work by concerned residents.※We does do all we talk to the chairman but he ain*t doing nothing.§Efforts made to contact the Ministry of Public Works for a comment were fruitless.

Alliance For Change Chairman,Cheap Nike Huarache Shoes, Khemraj Ramjattan, has described as unconstitutional, moves byKhemraj Ramjattanthe Berbice Bridge Company Inc. to redirect marine traffic from crossing under the structure*s high span to the retractor span for a fee.Ramjattan is convinced that the bridge management implemented this new order to increase revenue by extracting monies from boat operators, who would have otherwise utilized the Berbice River without a fee.Several weeks ago, boat operators complained that the bridge management imposed an order that laden vessels,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, which cross under the high span free of cost, must desist from doing so. Instead,Adidas Hockey Jerseys Cheap, they must now cross whenever there is a retraction. And there is a fee attached.Vessels with foreign registration are charged $55,000 for in-bound pass and another $55,000 for out-bound. Locally registered vessels pay a fee of $28,000 for a one-way pass.However, according to Ramjattan, who is also an Attorney-At-Law, a perusal of the new regulation revealed that there is no provision for management to redirect river traffic from under the high span to the retractor span for the purpose of collecting a toll.He stated that to charge persons tax, fee or toll without proper authority under a law is unconstitutional and is a deprivation of property.※Merely administrative reconfiguration without proper authority like what the Berbice Bridge Company Inc. is doing is wrong#They cannot use security as the reason for this reconfiguration#They have no lawful authority to do that,§ he noted.Ramjattan suggested that the motive behind this scheme is to accumulate more revenue for the Berbice Bridge Company Inc. including Government, who is also an investor in the bridge.※My opinion is they want to earn more revenues in view of the management*s high cost for running the bridge.§Berbice River BridgeRamjattan noted, ※Under the letter and spirit of both the Act and Regulation and Order made there is provision that small boats with certain displacements should pass free of charge under the high span.§He emphasized that over the years small boats have been passing free of cost without hindrance from the Berbice Bridge Company Inc. authority.The fee being paid by this new flow of traffic via the retractor span is being viewed as an indirect taxation by the Government. He pointed out that Government has investments in the bridge and the mere fact it would allow this move it therefore means Government is looking to increase their returns.Ramjattan said that Government should not allow this. He dismissed as flimsy excuses of structure*s safety by the bridge*s management as the reason for this restriction.※Not only is this an extra cost to boat operators it is also time consuming because the retractor span does not allow the free flow of traffic– this is done according to a schedule,Wholesale Adidas Hockey Jerseys,§ he said.This limitation was highlighted by boat operators that transport sugar for the Guyana Sugar Corporation.Vessels that transport bulk sugar for the Guyana Sugar Corporation from Rose Hall to the Demerara Sugar Terminal have been affected. The shipping operators have been experiencing numerous hiccups and delays.Several factors such as tide, bridge retraction,Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys, rules and regulations governing transit time of 24 hours notice prior to transiting and heavy cancellation fees are some of the things that affect operators with this new system.The shippers emphasized that the fee being charged is adding to their operational costs which would lead to them charging their customers more. This could affect the already financially challenged state-owned sugar company.※The turn-around time in between shipments will be much longer and will obviously affect the estate grinding or storage capacity and this will no doubt have serious consequences for oceangoing vessels,Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys,§ they said.

#Artistes deliver high class packagesDespite the fact that US artiste T-PAIN at the last minute dropped out of the Mash night mega concert, hundreds turned up at the GCC Ground on Monday night and were treated to high class performances by both the local and international artiste lineup.China based Guyanese artiste, Jermaine Mc Beam wooed the festive audience.With a small crowd at the venue, the show began sometime around 22:00 hrs with opening act China based Guyanese singer, Jermaine Mc Bean, whose antics and ultra melodious renditions found favour with the audience to which he was an entirely new face.This singer truly possessed natural entertainment charisma as was noted by many and soon had the audience either dancing to his vibrations or singing along in unison.With zest and true fire he exploded with &Love and Affection*, &August Town*, and &Gully Side*, made popular by the Morgan Heritage group out of Jamaica.Wooing a lucky female much to the crowd*s delight, he closed his act amidst loud applause from the audience. Around this time the audience had increased considerably, eagerly awaiting the appearance of the next act.Next to come was the new Soca Monarch Queen, Shellon &Shelly G* Garraway who stormed the stage sporting a new sophisticated look. Taking a change from her customary two piece skimpy costumes,Cheap Air Jordan Shoes, the songstress this time around donned a figure hugging pants suit accentuated with glamorous fish net stockings and a smashing and fashionable black &go-go boots* which she did not hesitate to &hop out of* as she prepared for frenzied gyration.Well of course she started off as expected with her hit single &Touch Me* but quickly plunged into other spicy ballads inclusive of? &Swing It*, &Them Can*t Wuk Me* and her Soca Monarch entry &Work It*, which included her special &daggering content* that seemed to throw the large crowd in a frenzy. In the middle of her performance the crowd was plunged into hysterical laughter when the famous &Granny Fit* sensation &Ivelaw Campbell* stormed on stage performing some of his most hilarious dance routines. The crowd could not contain themselves when he took off his red, lacy underwear and spanked the unsuspecting entertainment journalist Mondale Smith who, tired from a day of Mash reveling, was perched beside the stage concentrating on recording the night happenings.Intent on &keeping the soca fire burning’, the promoters next presented X*s 2 entertainers Adrian Dutchin and Jomo Primo, who created a &soca inferno* never before experienced at the venue. Dressed in immaculate white costumes they performed their &Tick Tock* special and of course &It it impossible* which found favour with the ladies.When they blasted away their hit single &Crazy* the ladies went totally wild as they gyrated and trembled.To top things off, the singers climbed on top of two stereo boxes where they launched into frenzied waist and hip demonstrations that had the audience screaming their heads off.After performing a few more of their most rated singles,NFL Jerseys Outlet, the singers were joined by Carib Soca Monarch runner-up , Melissa &Vanilla* Williams,Cheap Jerseys USA, Celeste David and Junior Calypso third place winner? Tenecia De Freitas and Rhonda Dunbar,NFL Jerseys Outlet, all four executing a sizzling backup dance that had the audience shouting their approval.Sherwin Winchester and Maxi Priest deliver double excitement at the GCC Ground.Then it was time for the international acts and who could better open this segment than Trinidadian Soca Monarch,Cheap Air Max Tn, Sherwin Winchester who brought his usual raunchy and energetic performance to the stage.His act was entertaining, explosive and satisfying. Of course he never forgets to throw bottles of water in the crowd as he instructed them to &get wet* as he belted out some of pieces inclusive of &Aliqua*, &Dead or Alive*, &Open the Gates* and many others.When he ended his act amidst thunderous applause from the crowd which had increased significantly, he was joined by Maxi Priest who with his hyperactive personality delivered a stimulating performance. While Winchester performed backup routines, Priest wooed the ladies with &Wild World*, &Whatever My Eyes Can See* and some of his other hit singles to which the audience sang along in unison. The fact that he has gained a few pounds did noting to deter the ladies who were almost swooning from delight and admiration. One brave &ghetto gal* went as far as grabbing onto the singer*s groin and massaging for all she was worth as the crowd screamed in wild abandon.Peter Ram was a &real soca rammer*, &bigging up his ladies* the moment he came on stage. He was much more of a &smooth operator* but of course bridled with natural soca fire. As the audience screamed or either engaged in frenzied gyration, this entertainer belted out &White Pants Tight*, &Down the Road*, &Supervisor* and the soca pieces he knew would truly engulf the festive audience. He was well applauded and made way for Biggie Irie who was loved especially by the &big girls* who backed it up to show their appreciation or just jiggled their feminine curves. In their honour he sang &Big Girls* as they waved and beamed with pride, and of course &Nah Going Home* to remind the crowd of all night reveling. Choosing some of the more rated compositions he had on his platter he ensured his fans were &wet and satisfied* when he exited the stage.Serani as agreed by everyone &sang sheer stupidity* with hardly any backup from the band. Whether it was planned or not was not clear but his back up singer missed several notes and was often off key.Even his popular &It*s Serani* and &Everywhere I Go* lacked flavour and the singer seemed to have vocal problems as he screamed continuously into the microphone.Maybe the promoters saved the best for last, because Jamaican dancehall king,Cheap Air Max 90 Men Shoes, Beenie Man surely &sent the adrenaline pumping* as he stormed onto the stage full of smiles and super energy. The ladies screamed, jumped and some almost rent their clothing to pieces. He took them on a &scorching journey* that reeked of dancehall fire and delivered an entertainment thunderstorm that &rocked the joint*, as expected.His &Back it Up* was well received by the super-excited Guyanese females. So was his &King of the Dancehall* which saw several local lads in the crowd demonstrating in no uncertain terms that they too had dancehall crowns of their own.When the dancehall king exited and the show came to a close, there were wet bodies all over with satisfied smiles mirroring their enjoyment as they struggled to catch their breaths from all the gyrating they delivered.

The financial situation of the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) yesterday came under severe scrutiny as a motion was moved to suspend the Standing Orders for the Council*s statutory meeting.The councilors stood firm, as they demanded accountability from the system and requested that the financial details of the Council must also be presented to them in written form. This resulted in Mayor Hamilton Green requesting that the details of the Council*s finances be prepared and disseminated to the councilors with the minutes of the statutory meetings.The discussions and questions thrown out to the treasurer focused primarily on the collection of rates and taxes for this recent amnesty period commencing September 15 and the re-evaluation period.According to Andrew Meredith, Treasurer,China Jerseys Cheap, the Council collected $80M as of last Friday for the month of September. This amount does not reflect the usual collection and he concluded that the amnesty period is not going as planned.Meredith emphasized that from September 15 when the amnesty period commenced to last Friday a total of $47M was collected.He recounted that in previous months this could be considered barely adequate. For instance, for the first four months of the year, each month the Council raked in $115M. For this month with the amnesty in progress the Council would probably earn $100M.This financial report did not satisfy the Mayor who contended that a pattern of collection within the past 10 years is required. He further pointed out that when details are presented it should include the amount received and the amount that is owed.According to one of the Councilors,Matt Ryan Falcons Jersey, Junior Garrett,NFL Jerseys Cheap From China, the amnesty period is a failure. Garrett stressed that the budgeted monthly rates and taxes collection is $132M and for September the Council only collected $80M.Another means of the council to obtain money from errant tax payers is through the Court. He said that this medium is not justly utilized and tax payers who owe, for instance,Air Max 1 Atmos For Sale, $39,000 should not be taken before the court. Instead,Authentic NFL Jerseys, the tax payers who owe the Council millions of dollars should be before the court.Garrett pointed out that regardless some tax payers are poor, they must pay their taxes.However, Garrett*s argument was refuted by the Town Clerk, Yonette Pluck, who contended that the Council does not discriminate when taking tax payers to court. She asserted that some of the tax payers who are before the court owe the Councils millions of dollars.Justifying the reason why a tax payer who owed the Council $39,000 is being placed before the court, Pluck noted that anyone who owes the organization three-month*s payment is eligible to be taken to the court.She emphasized that years of neglect to take aggressive actions against errant tax payers is being reflected in the Council*s financial woes.Discussions surrounding the progress of the re-evaluation of Georgetown properties revealed that this project is now under the ambit of the Deputy Mayor*s office. It is anticipated that when this project comes into full swing the body will earn over $400M per year.According to Meredith,Jerseys NFL Wholesale, the process to re-evaluate the properties has started but it is only 30 percent completed. He stated that the workers on the ground are getting results but there is need for better organization.He said that the team has to work together for the exercise to be done properly. Meredith added that he sensed that not all the players have the Council*s interest at heart.According to Deputy Mayor, Robert Williams, he summoned the parties involved to a meeting to discuss the exercise but no one showed up for it.In response, Pluck stated that the information was unavailable to conduct the meeting. She said that the evaluation office reported that there is duplication of data. As such, more work has to be done to produce a proper list.This resulted in the Mayor calling a meeting on Wednesday this week with the Finance Committee.

–?? ?Pleased with response from Human Services Ministry Florence Tyndall is optimistic that her Sparendaam, East Coast Demerara house will be rebuilt, even if it takes years. She is confident that the insurance company of the ill-fated American registered aircraft that crashed into her house will compensate her.There is the belief that the twin-engine Piper Aztec with registration N27-FT may not be insured since the insurance company has not come forward after the plane crashed on April 13, last, killing the owner and pilot, Pierre Angiel and passenger Canadian Scientist Nick Dmitriev.A distraught Michelle Belle and one of her children stand by the doorway of her destroyed house.According to a source, the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA)*s Air Transport Management Department did not verify if the aircraft was insured. And, the regulatory body will be writing to the Federal Aviation Administration to assist in investigating the status of the aircraft.Despite this allegation, the 69-year-old believes that the aircraft is insured. She has confidence that the aircraft-owner would have had needed insurance to reach this far with the aircraft. Tyndall added that when Dmitriev*s widow and children visited the crash site she was informed that Angiel had divorced his first wife and has a son. His second wife is sickly and could not come to Guyana.Following the crash which flattened her house, Tyndall was staying with a neighbour to keep &a close eye* on the activities that were ongoing in her yard.

– Robeson BennPublic Works Minister Robeson BennMinister of Public Works Robeson Benn said that there was no formal discussion in Cabinet to ban any of this year*s anti- government calypso songs. According to him, after he made a personal objection about one of the calypsos,Cheap Jerseys From China, ※the issue seemed to take on a life of its own.§The Minister said that he was returning home from a function when he heard a calypso which was in his view, ※abusive, and libelous or rather slanderous,§ playing on the radio.? At that time, Benn said, he was in the vicinity of the radio station. It was then, he said, he went into the radio station and requested a copy of the tape, ※because I felt it had to be discussed in the government at the highest levels.§Benn said that he was told that he could not immediately get a copy of the song. Sometime after his arrival at National Communication Network (NCN) acting Chief Executive Officer, Michael Gordon, arrived.? The Minister said that Gordon contended that ※approval was given from the Director of Culture or somebody in respect to playing,§ the music.Benn said that he promised to further discuss the matter, ※and maybe talk to some lawyers.§ He said that there was no uproar, ※but I did make a personal opinion that I didn*t think it should be played through the government radio station.§Minister Benn however continued that he had no idea who authorized the banning of the calypsos as his only interest was to get a copy of the song he heard on the radio.Benn said he would have felt better if the songs were ※played in other places which I am not associated with. I felt it should not have been played on the government radio station and I expressed that view and still hold that view.§※Usually when there is commentary about things, and it takes a certain life of its own it has to be based on some fact, and the persons who sing? and promote these things have to have some right or reason which propels them to make those comments which reside in some basis or fact.※If I had stood up in Parliament chambers and made some of those statements which were made, I might have been ruled out of order; I might have had to withdraw my statement on the grounds that they would have been non parliamentary, abusive.§Benn said that there is no evidence to support the statements made in the calypsos; they do not have any real basis in fact that could be proven in a court. ※I would think that if a public and government sponsored activity is undertaken and certain statements are made, not in a satirical way but in an abusive way, that it should be based in some fact that can be properly contested in a court.§He further charged that if there is any good to come out of the matter, he would hope ※that proper, appropriate vetting of calypsos would be done and at the standard of lyric and satire that one expects in calypsos and Soca.§The Minister emphasized his belief that he had the right as a citizen and a Minister to go down to the station and speak out against something that ※Impacted me.§The Calypso community has however condemned the decision to ban the calypso. Veteran Calypsonian Geoffrey Phillips, aka &the Mighty Rebel* and President of Calypso Association took offence over the recent banning of what was dubbed &anti- government* calypso tunes.Rebel and calypsonians charged that nothing was degrading, vulgar or disrespecting about the tunes as the information revealed in the songs come from information in the public domain.? Many also charged that the purpose of the ban was to silence the reigning calypso king, Lester &De Professor* Charles, but fear of retaliation from Linden, where he hails caused all the 2013 tunes to be barred.The calypsonians said that the act is, ※Damaging to Mashramani, and damaging to calypso and the entire fraternity.§ As such the calypso president has called an urgent meeting scheduled for tomorrow. All patrons and entertainers were asked to make a special effort to attend.

By Abena Rockcliffe Though A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance For Change (AFC) now essentially have differing opinions and positions on the Amaila Falls hydro power project, it seems, so far, as if both parties are still on the same page as it relates to securing employment for Guyanese during the construction phase and life of the project.AFC executive member, Dominic GaskinDuring the last stakeholders* forum on the Amaila Falls project, it was revealed that the language used in the contract between Sithe Global and China Railway was to ※secure§ employment for Guyanese during the construction of the hydro plant.China Railway First Group has been contracted by Sithe Global to construct the facility.The Chinese construction company is currently undertaking section &seven* of the Amaila Falls Access Road and has not employed any Guyanese on that venture. The company has further stated that it will not be employing any Guyanese as it proceeds with that section of the access road.However, president of Sithe Global, Brian Kubeck, indicated during the stakeholders* forum that the construction site will attract just about 1,500 persons, of whom between 15 to 20 percent of will be Guyanese. This however, is being provided for, using ※very discretionary language§ as was presented by Sithe Global.Kubeck said that the Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract with China Railway ensures that the conditions are made so that Guyanese workers will have work ※opportunities.§Some of the phrases used to ※secure§ jobs for Guyanese include phrases such as, ※reasonable efforts§, ※where possible§, ※as-needed§, ※reasonable provisions§ and the word ※adequate.§According to Kubeck, Guyanese will be accommodated at the site at the same standard with foreigners and Sithe Global has an overtime ※obligation§ to train Guyanese for the senior positions.APNU*s Shadow Minister of Legal Affairs and Labour, Basil Williams, told Kaieteur News that employment for Guyanese is always a priority of APNU. He said that if the Amaila Falls project is to go through, Guyanese must be first priority in every way; including employment.Williams saw it fit to refer to ※PNC time (as government) when &Guyanization clauses* were used§.He explained that a &Guyanization Clause* is one used in contracts with foreign investors, companies/contractors to ensure that Guyanese will be employed and that the system be so designed that Guyanese can ※take over in full.§APNU*s Basil WilliamsThe lawyer detailed, ※We had that in place so that even if half of the workers on the project construction were Guyanese, after some time, Guyanese would have been able to take over. We had those clauses back then and I would recommend that they be used now, because Guyanese should all time be first priority.§Williams also told Kaieteur News that discretionary language is not advisable in contracts since they aren*t really enforceable in a court of law.Similarly, yesterday at an AFC press conference, the party*s treasurer, Dominic Gaskin, said that the AFC is ※very concerned§ about the discretionary language used in the contract between Sithe Global and China Railway.He emphasized that discretionary language can*t be relied on to secure employment for Guyanese labourers.Gaskin added that the AFC hadn*t as yet gotten a chance to review and discuss the Engineering Procurement and Construction contract, but said that the party would advocate that the language be tightened.Sithe Global*s presentation to stakeholders at the forum had under the heading ※Guyana Goods, Services and Labour,§ the following bulleted points.※The Engineering Procurement and Construction contract requires China Railway to undertake the following:每Use reasonable efforts to use materials produced in Guyana by Guyanese citizens, and services provided by Guyanese citizens.每Use reasonable efforts to hire individuals who are Guyanese citizens and resident in Guyana每Actively recruit local, qualified citizens of Guyana where possible to work at the AHP site每Advertise upcoming hiring needs by skill category on an as-needed basis in Georgetown, Linden, and the Amerindian villages.每Provide adequate contractor supervisors capable of speaking fluent English to avoid discrimination against Guyanese employees.每Provide housing in the labour camp for Guyanese employees that are equivalent to that provided to employees from the contractor*s country.每Make reasonable provisions for Guyanese workers.Eminent forestry expert, Dr Janette Bulkan, who was also present at the stakeholders* forum, is among those who have pointed to the language used.? She had highlighted that this kind of discretionary language does not match Guyana*s Investment Code of 1988.The Marriott Hotel, which is currently under construction, has seen no Guyanese labour being used,Wholesale Jerseys China, with the lone exception at one time being a security guard. Various officials, in defending the exclusive use of Chinese labour on the project, spoke to the unavailability of Guyanese skills.

-had revoked government officials visas for inaction– calls for Rohee, Greene to be dismissed ?By Dale AndrewsPresidential candidate of the Alliance for Change, Khemraj Ramjattan, has disclosed that the United States State Department has a wealth of information on local cops who are linked to the drug trade.Speaking at the party*s weekly press conference, Ramjattan who is also a prominent attorney-at-law indicated that this information has been relayed to him at every meeting he has had with members of the State Department over the years.Khemraj RamjattanRamjattan was responding to questions about the link between senior officials of the Guyana police Force and characters in the local drug circuit, of which reports have been carried by this newspaper following revelations by Assistant Commissioner Steve Merai.Merai*s revelation is certainly nothing new to the police since, according to Ramjattan, US officials have informed him that they have provided information to the local law enforcement authorities with regard to officers of the Guyana Police Force who have benefitted from the trade in illegal drugs.However, nothing has been done until recently when Merai made the allegations at a force admin meeting, prompting Police Commissioner Henry Greene to order an investigation.※We have been speaking to the State Department officials who have indicated to us, on my last trip to the State Department, that they have been giving the information to the Government of Guyana. The Government of Guyana, however, has been telling the people that they have not been getting the information.※And it is for that reason that the State Department has indicated that the Minister*s visa has been taken away and the Commissioner*s visa has been taken away,§ Ramjattan stated.A recent US State Department report had pointed to massive corruption within the Guyana Police Force and overall government.※Many police are reportedly paid off by criminal elements and are alleged to work with the criminals by either assisting or protecting them,§ the report had stated.Even the Commissioner of Police had his US visa revoked by the United States for allegedly benefitting from the proceeds of the drug trade.Clement RoheeKaieteur News understands that over the past years, the United States of America has revoked the visas of no less than 11 government officials for various reasons.Yesterday, Ramjattan called for the immediate resignation of Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee and the Police Commissioner in light of the recent allegations by Merai which were described as highly credible.※The concept of ministerial responsibility that we know in a normal democracy demands that his lackluster performance in that ministry, and his absolute failings to ensure that the Police Force do its job to provide service and protection and abide by the law, leaves so much to be desired. He has failed, there*s no doubt about it,§ Ramjattan said.The AFC Co-Leader pointed out that apart from these failings, the jailbreaks and other shortcomings are enough for the minister to relieve himself from the office that he presently holds.※And if he does not want to resign, which is the moral thing, in accordance with a convention called ministerial responsibility, he ought to be dismissed by the president,§ Ramjattan stated emphatically.He highlighted several cases where in normal democracies leading officials have taken the blame for transgressions that occur under their watch.According to Ramjattan, government ministers in England and in Canada have resigned for less than what he described as the abhorrent and abominable development in Guyana.He also called for the resignation of the policemen against whom the allegations have been leveled, as well as the Commissioner of Police.With respect to an investigation into the allegations, the AFC Presidential Candidate said that a Commission of Inquiry headed by an international team of experts preferably from CARICOM, the US Drug Enforcement Agency or Scotland Yard, should be set to deal with such.※This is a dangerous development, when policemen#are controlling blocks, in relation to how the cocaine is to be transported and couriered,§ Ramjattan said.He stressed that he had no doubt that the information coming out of Merai*s revelations are credible.Like Minister Rohee, Ramjattan said that there was strong suspicion all along about the links of police officers to alleged drug dealers. However it was not brought to the fore before now.※And now that the evidence is coming from an Assistant Commissioner of Police, it substantiates and vindicates all that we have been feeling, as happening in the Guyana Police Force. The fact that some of these policemen do have fancy motor cars vindicates that there is accuracy about what is being alleged here, there is authenticity of what is being alleged,§ Ramjattan stated.The police Criminal Investigations Department and the Office of Professional Responsibility have been mandated to investigate the Merai allegations but the AFC Co-Leader has no confidence in the internal investigative arm of the local law enforcement agency to investigate allegations of such magnitude.※Those offices are tainted with a bias,Cheap Jerseys Free, in my view. When it (allegations) is so high and so significant a development, that office should not be the place that should be dealing with investigations of policemen on those high ranks. It should require an international quality team,§ Ramjattan said.He added that he will feel confident with the independence of investigators from outside the jurisdiction.※And also because of their expertise and experience, they can come up with better recommendations than our team of officers in the CID and the OPR,§ he added.According to Ramjattan, when retired Assistant Commissioner Paul Slowe remarked that both the upper and lower echelons of the force are corrupt, this was dismissed as reckless by both Minister Rohee and President Bharrat Jagdeo.※This is a major, major development which demands inquiry, which demands dismissals, which demands interdictions, which demands resignations right up to the minister,§ he said.His calls are not likely to be taken to the National Assembly, since the AFC*s position is not to return to Parliament during the official recess period.Additionally, Ramjattan is convinced that the ruling PPP/c which has a majority in the Parliament, will not consider the issues as a matter of urgent public importance.※They*ve always blocked motions of this nature,§ he said.Ramjattan is also of the view that since the administration appears to be turning a blind eye to the entire situation, they are complicit.※If you turn a blind eye as a Minister, knowing that the thing is happening under your nose, you are by your omission, responsible and that is what has been happening here.§Ramjattan also pointed to the fact that the administration appears to be very comfortable with the present commissioner who had reached the age of retirement three years ago.※It just goes to show that there is absolute loyalty to the Commissioner, they feel safe with him and that is what I am saying here, that Commissioner must also go. He ought to have gone a couple of years ago. You only extend, not because you don*t have bright young policemen, but you feel safe with what you got and what you got had his visa taken away by the American Embassy§.Ramjattan said that the Americans must know plenty about cocaine dealings at the very highest levels within the mafia in Guyana and they probably know who are connected with it.※And that is why it has reached the abominable wretched state and there is a stench now and it is stinking to high heavens now,§ the AFC co-leader stated.

Government, in its thrust to promote a green economy and environment, is moving ahead with plans to ban the importation and use of closed-cell extruded polystyrene foam, popularly known by the trade mark brand, Styrofoam, as of January 1, 2016.The Department of Natural Resources and the Environment has begun implementing a series of measures to address waste management and to promote the utilisation of bio-degradable materials.? The proposed Expanded Polystyrene Ban Regulation is being finalised before the effective date to ensure the ban is legally reinforced.Cabinet has already granted approval for the immediate development of a legal framework to implement the ban on the importation and use of polystyrene foam products, as well as a public awareness programme to educate the public on the consequences of its usage and the benefits of the alternatives.This decision follows a series of consultations, which were held previously with industry operators, importers and other key stakeholders. However, more consultative sessions are planned for the duration of the year, before the ban fully takes effect in January.It is hoped that this initiative will see a significant reduction in the effects of polystyrene foam products?on solid waste management in Guyana and its negative impact on the environment, while leading to the further development of new enterprises in the alternatives sector. With the ban,Adidas Hockey Jerseys Cheap, Guyana will become one of few countries in the world to ban the product.In Guyana, polystyrene foam makes up about five percent of the waste stream and is most popularly used in the food service industry. The improper disposal of the single use item has been, and remains a threat to human health and the wider environment, incurring clean up and disposal costs amounting to millions of dollars, a cost borne by the taxpaying public.The Department of Natural Resources and the Environment will be collaborating with the Ministries of Business, Legal Affairs, and Finance via the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA), to implement the ban.
