OPINION: GECOM staff composition, fair, solid and satisfactory

OPINION: Attempted civil coup d’etats by GHK Lall

There is a problem; in fact, many serious problems.  No one wants to hear any questions; no one wants to provide any answers.  Call them silent, speechless, deliberately and determinedly dumb when such tactics suit their purposes.  The same pervasive resistance-be it individuals, corporate citizens, or legal entities-have no documents to furnish and no interest in furnishing any.  Not a ...

Petrobras must be awarded future oil blocks, regardless

by GHK Lall News reports have surfaced that there are several big-name bidders for available oil blocks in Guyana waiting to be awarded.  This should not come as a surprise, given the continuing discoveries by ExxonMobil of one rich field after another; the majors want a piece of the action in what is a diminishing global environment of new finds. ...

OPINION: ‘Trafficking In Persons’ is a major road traffic problem

‘Trafficking in Persons’ is increasingly becoming a major road traffic in problem in Guyana.
