Ramotar and cabinet should be commended for continuing economic growth

Dear Editor,

The PPP/C administration has completed one year since its re-election to office in general and regional elections held on November 28, 2011. This is the first time in its political history that the PPP was elected to office without a majority of the seats in Parliament, a situation that has been exploited by the combined opposition to make life difficult for the PPP/C administration.

Be that as it may, the year has been quite eventful without any slowing down of the developmental momentum which the country has experienced over the years. The economy is expected to show positive growth thanks to the enhanced performance of sugar and rice with the latter experiencing a record level of production this year. The mining sector is also doing well, in particular gold, which has shown significant improvements in production levels.

President Donald Ramotar and his cabinet must be commended for continuing the growth and development trajectory of the economy despite a harsh international environment and a less than supportive opposition.

Yours faithfully,
Hydar Ally
