We need to set up a think tank to study ways in which we can benefit from a Guyana-Brazil trade route
As Guyana is potentially a trade route for goods from and to Brazil, much like the Panama Canal links the Atlantic and Pacific, we should ask the Brazilians to build us a road from Lethem to Linden and a deep water harbour in Berbice. We are going to need to develop our commerce.
That includes banks and insurance companies. By the time the deep water harbour and the Lethem-Linden road are built we need to have our people trained in the banking and insurance sector as well as in the service industries that can benefit from Guyana as a developing trade route.
If China has its way, Guyana would be heavily saddled with Chinese debt and our airports and seaports would be controlled by China. Control the ports and you can control Guyana as a trade route.
We need to set up a think tank to find ways in which we can benefit from Guyana being a trade route from Brazil to the rest of the world.
