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

Bay Street in Toronto Canada is the financial district which is the equivalent to Wall Street in the United States of America.  Continue reading

Over the September 12th weekend, consensus building artisan and Guyana President, David Granger, illustrated and demonstrated to Toronto based Guyanese and Businessmen that the investment climate is ripe.  He said that Guyanese especially do not have to live there permanently to benefit from investment opportunities they can traverse and use secure technology to manage their investments.

The President also pitched and noted that the justice system had decayed and was very complex to upgrade.  And even though the administration had a handle on crime, there were other platforms that needed just as much action and training – notably cyber security and the judiciary.   (View FaceBook:  Bobby Ramlagan’s photos of the event) Continue reading
