By Lance HindsGuyana has, and continues to suffer acutely for the migration of university graduates and professionals seeking greener (if not just green) pastures in more enabling environments. This state of affairs severely affects the ability of the Private Sector to become a fully effective, competitive force with the ability to challenge for business opportunities in the region and further afield.Lance HindsIt is understood that migration is a natural phenomenon and not particular to Guyana.聽 There is a critical need, however, for all stakeholders to begin to develop a series of initiatives that will build an enabling, progressive environment that convinces our citizens to remain and provide significant inputs into the local economy.It is estimated that the size of the economy at the end of 2014 was just under US$3 billion. It is clear that it is either not large or diversified enough to provide the employment, growth and the across-the-board revenue generation needed at this time.Guyana, like many of its fellow CARICOM countries, has become increasingly uncompetitive in global markets, on account of the low-value-added in their main exports whether it be raw materials or food commodities. Along with this, our economies have become even more dependent on imports, resulting in an unfavourable balance of payments and additional pressure on the availability of foreign exchange.The issue of the size of economy is sometimes a bone of contention in some business circles鈥ith the main discussion surrounding whether it should have been larger given the natural resources that we have. Guyana鈥檚 economy is the fifth largest in the Caribbean, behind Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Suriname and Barbados. Note that the last two countries are smaller than we are not only in terms of size,Jerseys NFL China, but also population.聽 There is a legitimate conclusion that after almost 50 years of independence, the economy, for a variety of reasons I suspect known to all, has underperformed.Back, however, to the matter at hand. If we are going to work on expanding and/or diversifying the economy,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, entrepreneurship and innovation must be fostered and supported by all the country鈥檚 stakeholders and policymakers. These two pillars are the keys to our transformation and ultimate economic success. Traditional ways of production and services, such as importing machinery and equipment or foreign investment, are simply not enough to confront the challenges of inclusive economic development.The culture of innovation must be developed and nurtured. We must encourage high school and university graduates to tap into their creativity and channel it into creating new, exciting business. I have found that there are a lot of young people with great ideas who are unable to convert them into sustainable income-generating operations. A way must be found to harness these ideas and support the impetus of moving them from thought to finish.At the policy level, there is a need for the creation of a national innovation system that will focus on the creation and expansion of innovative businesses. Innovation policy must coordinate the implementation of policies that complement the strengthening of institutions and new programmes focused on the promotion of business innovation and innovative entrepreneurship. Greater emphasis must be placed on innovation in the services, intellectual property, creative and ICT sectors, as well as exploiting the possibilities in traditional sectors like tourism and agriculture.This, of course, is not the responsibility of the government alone. Business support organisations (BSOs) must realize that critical to their long term sustainability, and even existence, is the creation of new businesses, to continue the advocacy and lead the way to sustainable economic growth and long term prosperity. These organizations must be open to directly and aggressively supporting the growth of new businesses, and most especially those by the youth in our society.The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), for example, has been working with local, regional and international partners over the past four years to develop a series of interventions to help encourage the further development of entrepreneurship and innovation. There has been a particular focus on youth entrepreneurship,China Jerseys NFL Wholesale, since research has shown alarmingly that there is low income generation in this sector and that unemployment levels are near 40 per cent.It is clear that the current business and productive sectors cannot significantly reduce unemployment levels in the short term. The Chamber is currently working on a medium to long term plan to develop a business incubator to support the further development of ideas and concepts being conceived by young innovators.The latest effort in this regard is a collaboration between the GGCI and Scotiabank on a new initiative called LivePitch. The concept is based on two television shows called SharkTank and Dragon鈥檚 Den, in the United States and Canada respectively. In these two shows, participants present their ideas and services to group of investors (The 鈥楽harks鈥� and 鈥楧ragons鈥�) who after listening to the presentations, ask questions about viability and related areas, and decide whether they are going to invest or not.LivePitch is a modified version of these two programmes. In this instance it will be the culmination of the ongoing Scotiabank business plan competition,Authentic Jerseys China, where the finalists will be required to present (or 鈥減itch鈥�) their ideas/concepts on television before a group of experienced professionals and a live studio audience. The contestants will be required to present a comprehensive overview of their business concepts and also convince the evaluators based on their understanding of the target market, their production,Cheap Jerseys, sales and distribution models, and their vision of the company in terms of revenue projections and sustainability. The winner of LivePitch will be awarded $500,000 by Scotiabank to develop the product that was evaluated.It is going to be a rigorous evaluation process and participants have the responsibility to ensure that they are extremely well prepared. This is not just for the sake of being difficult, but to help the participant prepare for future engagements with potential investors as a method of gaining financial support.It is these kinds of initiatives that should be observed and duplicated in the interest of fostering and supporting the growth of entrepreneurship and innovation that is necessary for the long term expansion, growth and prosperity of the Private Sector and the economy as a whole.Lance Hinds is the President of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He is also the Chief Executive of the BrainStreet Group,Wholesale Authentic Jerseys, an Information Technology and Content Development Company.

NFL Jerseys Supply How much marks will they get 40 or 80

In an effort to safeguard itself against academic fallout with the Hugh Wooding Law School, the University of Guyana (UG) has conducted an investigation into reports of examination fraud within the Faculty of Law.There were reports that a lecturer within the local Law Faculty has been suspended but Vice Chancellor of the local University, Professor Jacob Opadeyi, has insisted that this is not the case.UG Vice Chancellor, Professor Jacob Opadeyi“Nobody in the Faculty of Law was suspended since I was here…nobody in the Faculty of Law has been suspended because of the sale of exam papers or because of any reason,” Professor Opadeyi told reporters. However, he has called on any individual with such information to bring it swiftly to his attention.The sale of examination papers within the Law Faculty was called into question after an anonymous letter was sent to the Trinidad-based Law School alleging that marks and examination questions are being sold at a cost.The nameless correspondence was in turn forwarded to Professor Opadeyi and the Attorney General with officials from the Trinidadian institution stating their concern.  And according to Professor Opadeyi, “this concern is a serious one,Discount NFL Jerseys,” even as he considered that UG has over the years shared a cordial relationship with the Hugh Wooding Law School.Currently the Law School takes 25 UG graduates to undertake the Law programme there and according to Professor Opadeyi,Wholesale Jerseys China, the damning allegations have come at a time when the local university is seeking to have that number increased to 35.“Now to say that marks and question papers are being sold,Wholesale Football Jerseys, means that the Law School will start looking at us and saying ‘hey who are these people?’” said Professor Opadeyi. He however noted that the record will show that “our graduates from the University here have been doing very well,Cheap NFL Jerseys, even topping the class at the Law School.”In his attempt to shed light into an investigation conducted at UG regarding the allegations, the Vice Chancellor explained that not only were there no evidence to support the allegations but it is clear that “students get into the Law School based on their merit…It is your marks not who you are that get you in there.”“What do you expect if somebody purchases examination questions in advance? How much marks will they get 40 or 80 (per cent)?” queried Professor Opadeyi,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, who insisted, “We look at all the marks and the pass rate (here) was less than 50 per cent in the class in all courses. There are no set of persons who are getting 80 or 90 (per cent); that is what you do when you buy question papers; because in law it is very easy once you get the questions and you work hard on the questions and get all your citations and cite all your cases properly.”According to the Vice Chancellor following his own evaluation, the allegations thus far have proved to be unjust since it gives a bad label to “those eminent persons who are teaching our law programme, people who have been professors at other universities, people who are doing a good service collecting poor salary, (it is bad) to paint all of them as collecting money.”However,Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale, it has come to the attention of Professor Opadeyi who assumed the position of Vice Chancellor earlier this year that “I was told this (allegation) happens every year.”And even as he asserted that the state of affairs is unfair to the University, the Vice Chancellor disclosed that he is opened to receive any evidence of sales of examination papers.“If anybody has any evidence of such sales bring it to the Vice Chancellor and put your name on it and I will deal with it because that should not be allowed,” said Professor Opadeyi.He further cautioned that allegations could cause the University at least two weeks of its time just to investigate.

NFL Jerseys Wholesale even as Vice Chancellor of the University

– unions call for ‘interest-bearing account’ to address payment challengesProfessor Jacob OpadeyiThe University of Guyana is seemingly on the verge of collapse, a state of affairs evident by the fact that the entity continues to pile-up debt each month payable to the Guyana Revenue Authority, Credit Unions, National Insurance Scheme and to medical and pension schemes. At the moment, part-time staffers continue to suffer inordinately as many have not received payments, notwithstanding their submission of claim forms since earlier this year. Moreover,NBA Jerseys China, the workers’ unions intend to take legal and industrial action if a clear plan with timeframes to fulfill all obligations to workers is not outlined.This development was amplified yesterday, even as Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Jacob Opadeyi,Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys, during a meeting, updated senior university staffers and their unions about the institution’s outstanding liabilities and debt.Yesterday’s forum was held following a public request by the University of Guyana Senior Staff Association (UGSSA) and the University of Guyana Workers’ Union (UGWU) at a meeting on Friday last.According to reports, the meeting was conducted in a “frank and cordial manner” and saw the two bodies acknowledging the difficult circumstances under which the new VC is operating.But although both unions and staffers have promised to lend their support to the VC in an environment of mutual respect, yesterday they again requested an update on the financial situation at the University and sought the assurance that “from henceforth, gross salaries would be paid in a timely manner.”This request saw the VC indicating that while net salaries would be paid on time this month he could not give assurances that gross salaries would be paid and that salary payments would be made in a timely way beyond. He pledged, however, to continue to make representation to the Ministers of Education and Finance in this regard.“Clearly this is an untenable situation facing UG staffers,” the unions have stated. Moreover, they are proposing that the monies approved by Parliament required to pay wages,Soccer Jerseys China, salaries and contractual financial benefits to staff be deposited in a lump sum on an annual basis, in an interest-bearing account, to be controlled by the University’s administration.”Such a practice, the unions have noted, is employed in other regional and international universities and would ensure timely payments to staff and eliminate time wastage by senior UG officers who go on monthly pilgrimages to both the Education and Finance Ministries.The unions also underscored the need for the VC to seek buy-in for his agenda, including the possible implementation of some recommendations contained in the Trevor Hamilton and Associates Report.The unions have also requested that the VC solicit support, particularly from the Academic Board and the Committee of Deans, and have also requested that he meet with all faculty and staff on a quarterly or half-yearly basis. This,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, according to the union, would honour the undertaking by the UG Administration in February 2012 to meet the Unions on a monthly basis.A call has also been made to reconvene the UG Negotiating Team to recommence negotiations on salaries and benefits with the Unions.Concern has also been expressed that the life of the Council came to an end on June 30 and according to the Unions,Jerseys NFL Cheap, the Minister of Education to date has not yet appointed another Council. As such, the Unions note that “this ad hoc, unplanned approach to the University’s governance by the Honorable Minister has had a negative impact on the functioning of the University.”For instance, it was observed that the UG Negotiating Team cannot be convened without at least two Council members,Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic, so recommencement of salary negotiations is dependent upon the appointment of a new Council or the extension of the life of the current Council.Additionally, an Appointment Committee meeting scheduled for this week had to be cancelled, as it needs Council members to be quorate. This means that new appointments and renewals and extensions of contracts are still to be completed.In the meantime the Unions remain concerned over the fact that the new academic year is scheduled to commence in just over a month but there still is need to repeat an appeal for the Education Minister to appoint persons to the Council. According to the Unions, the Council requires people who are competent and possess the necessary skill-sets to transform Guyana’s sole national University into an outstanding, creditable tertiary institution.

Cheap Air Max 270 Mens 000 persons depend on forestry activities for a living

Government yesterday insisted that the forest deal with Norway for US$250M is a good one. It added that the criticisms of the role of McKinsey and Company are totally unfounded.Chairman of the Guyana Forestry Commission, John Caesar, stressed that the officials preparing the report which was critical in preparing the country’s Low Carbon Development Strategy, included Nobel Laureates.2011 has been declared International Year of Forests.The comments were made yesterday during a seminar to observe the United Nations’ naming 2011 as “International Year of Forests”.The event at the Guyana International Convention Centre (GICC) at Liliendaal, was attended by President Bharrat Jagdeo, Minister of Agriculture, Robert Persaud, other government officials and several representatives of hinterland communities involved in forestry activities for a living.Caesar, echoing the President and Persaud, stressed that although Norway had also struck deals with Brazil and other countries, when taken on per capita basis, Guyana would have done well.Over recent years, government has been moving jumpstart economic activities in the hinterland areas.According to Minister Persaud,Cheap Jerseys From China, some 54 hinterland groups were granted 81 State Forest Exploratory Permit (SFEP) to exploit some 328,000 hectares of forestlands,NFL Jerseys Wholesale, a clear indication that there could be sustainable harvesting even while Guyana pursues its LCDS path. It is not insignificant that 20,000 persons depend on forestry activities for a living,Cheap Jerseys, with the resources like “green gold”.With over $2B annually being invested in the forestry sector, there are also challenges like concerns over mining and forestry rights within a particular area.Jagdeo, however, was critical,Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic, noting while that there is increasing global and local awareness over the critical role of the forest,Wholesale NFL Jerseys Authentic, developed countries continue to turn a blind eye and while willing to dole out a few dollars, are generally unwilling to cut their emissions.With temperatures expected to rise between three per cent and five per cent on the current pathway, unless something is done, the forests will die. The deal with Norway has only served to gain credibility for Guyana, the Head of State argued.While traditionally forestry activities were for large companies,Chris Chelios Jersey, Government has introduced measures that allow for communities to now benefit. The move would have reduced illegal logging, ultimately.The President, reassuring that the move to use the forests for monetary gain will not affect sustainable logging, said that while 99.5 per cent will remain intact, the rest is a large area that can take care of the needs.He lauded GFC as a model organization with young minds and challenged the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take note.The President also lashed out at recent attempts to discredit the Norway deal, noting that the Alliance For Change made a mistake by asking for information when those same information were available in the budget presentation earlier this year.Also represented at the seminar were the Forest Products Association (FPA) and the National Toshaos Council. Yesterday, the seminar was expected to elect an executive of a national body to represent operators within the community forest programs.
