Prime Minister’s statements about Linden electricity are pipe dreams

Dear Editor, In order to justify a ‘level playing field’ for electricity costs,  Lindeners were informed (SS April 15), by Mr Samuel Hinds, Prime Minister of the Republic of Guyana, that their power supply costs now heavily subsidized will have to be standardized with the rest of the country, since their continued sound growth and development without constraint is dependent on this necessary reform.

Dear Editor, KN of April 13, 2012, under the caption, ‘Brazilian company to develop ethanol plant at Albion Estate,‘ reported as follows: “Critical to such a venture is a successful sugar industry and the Agriculture Minister is optimistic about the future of GuySuCo, since according to him, the company is successfully confronting the challenges it is currently facing.” This Board must assume responsibility for what appeared in the Guyana Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper 2012-2015, which referred to “undertakings“ to contribute to the expansion of productivity in the sugar industry through “resolving the ‘kinks’ in equipment, and the management of the Skeldon Factory.“ Only two weeks ago, therefore, GuySuCo’s Board released the following “major rehabilitation including the redesigning and re-engineering of several aspects of the factory,“ such as ·  re-engineering the bagasse feeding system ·  re-designing cane conveyors ·  replacement of a 5 MW alternator ·  modification of punt-dumpers ·  a new well.
