What form will gov’t/private sector partnership on oil and gas take?

Dear Editor, In one of the dailies I read that the recent world class offshore oil discovery by Exxon Mobil Co, (the world’s largest publicly traded international oil and gas company) has firmly launched Guyana’s hydrocarbon industry and that the Government of Guyana was proposing in association with the Private Sector to construct an onshore base with associated infrastructure in order to support and serve the fledgling offshore Oil and Gas Sector.

Guyana should accept a number of refugees

Dear Editor, Our benign President David Granger, in his noble address recently to the United Nations General Assembly on the matter of the current migrant crisis, noted that the situation “if left unattended or unresolved, can escalate into regional and even global crises, which can threaten the existence of larger numbers of persons in wider areas, even beyond their country’s borders.” Most of us in Guyana today are descendants of migrants who were brought from Africa or India or China and even Portugal in challenging times and conditions, to work for the Dutch and then the British who colonized this land.

Why the daily blackouts?

Dear Editor, I am really fed up with the daily blackouts and low voltage! GPL has no regard for its customers; residents and businesses suffer and the ministry responsible for this entity is either turning a blind eye or seems to lack knowledge about this pertinent issue.
