GT ENTREPENEUR IN CT CELEBRATES 40TH

By Waltie Ainsworth

It was an all night party in honor of Ms Aneka Ainsworth Young who turned 40 for the first time.

A steel pan ensemble, a fire eating and balloon juggler and two DJs provided musical entertainment and a robust backdrop for the masquerade theme celebration.

Aneka who has roots in the People’s Republic of Victoria owns and operates a handful of McDonalds in her home state of Connecticut. She recently diversified her business and now owns and manages a cafe and spirit shop on 50 Elm Street in Connecticut.  She also has other business investments in Peru.

A true Guyanese to the core, when in Guyana Aneka hangs out in the Seafield Bengal district.

Aneka’s mom, Ms Vere Ainsworth Gibbs, and several of her siblings and close friends were on hand at the exquisite Elm Street club to wish her a happy birthday and continued blessings and investment opportunities in the years ahead.  ASOMELYKAM.

Can Oil Rescue Guyana from the Brink of Calamity?

Can Oil Rescue Guyana from the Brink of Calamity?

Scott B. MacDonald  – February 7, 2017 – http://nationalinterest.org

oil-rigNot if Venezuela has anything to say about it.

Guyana is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere, with a small population of fewer than one million people. Most of its population hugs the Atlantic coast. Despite a wealth of natural resources, Guyana’s location on the relatively remote northeast shoulder of South America, political dysfunction until the 1990s, and a longstanding border dispute with neighboring Venezuela have left the country in challenged economic straits. The recent discovery of a large offshore track of oil could change this, but also opens the door to new tensions with Venezuela, and could make Guyana one of the Caribbean’s hot spots in 2017.

In early January two major oil companies, Exxon Mobil and Hess, announced that they had successfully drilled a deepwater exploration well that strongly suggests that the seafloor beneath Guyana’s coastal waters contains one of the largest oil and natural-gas discoveries in recent years.

First-Village Indaba & Observance of Inaugural National Day of Villages

First-Village Indaba & Observance of Inaugural National Day of Villages

The Fourth First-Village Indaba will commence on Thursday, November 3rd under the theme of “Reconstruction” and conclude four days later on the evening of the inaugural observance ofa National Day of Villages. The Indaba Planning Committee shifted the event that is usually held during Emancipation Week as a way of acknowledgement of President David Granger’s foresight and the significant symbolic decision to designate November 7 – National Day of Villages.

The Indaba Committee is in harmony with the breadth of the Head of State’s designation of the observance as it honours and celebrates the pioneering contribution of all villages and acknowledges the continuing pivotal role of villages in the economic, social, and political life of Guyana. We also view the selection of the date of November 7 as a posthumous honorific bestowal on our Ancestors – the 83 Proprietors who daringly purchased Plantation Northbrook and emerged a code for the management of the village they named after Queen Victoria.   Continue reading

50th Independence Anniversary Message from Victoria’s Hugh A. Saul, Honorary Consul, Guyana Consulate Belize

Guyana 50th LogoMay 26th 2016, marks the 50th Anniversary of Guyana’s Independence, which took place on May 26, 1966. Fifty years, is but a short time in the life of a country, and today as we reflect on our Independence, we are mindful of the struggles of our forefathers who, over many centuries toiled, fought, resisted and in some cases died, in the cause of freedom and basic human rights. Our forefathers joined our Amerindian brothers and sisters in British Guyana by force of European arms, as they were transported from Africa, Portugal, China and India to create and develop what is now Guyana.

Guyana’s march to Political Independence was not an easy one. Our forefathers survived slavery, indentureship, colonial domination, physical and emotional hardships as they journeyed towards political independence.

Today, as we extend that struggle towards economic independence, we are mindful of the challenges that lie ahead of us as we march on this road, which hopefully, will bring prosperity to all of Guyana’s sons and daughters. Continue reading
