GCCI Records a Successful Year
Despite talks of an unstable global financial environment, the local business community has managed to remain financially self sufficient in the face of those challenges. These remarks were yet again echoed at the 121st Annual General Meeting of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce held this afternoon at Duke Lodge in Kingston.
In his remarks at the opening session, President of GCCI Komal Ramnauth pointed out that the chamber has had another successful year. He attributed its success in 2010, to the increased support from the local business community, which has put the Chamber in a healthy cash position.
According to Ramnauth, 2011 will see the chamber investing in key areas to generate value added services as it embarks on a comprehensive membership drive to foster trade and investments.
And applauding the efforts of the Chamber in providing a lucrative environment for businesses over the years, President Bharrat Jagdeo in his feature address called on businesses to be cognizant of the many challenges facing them.
President Jagdeo also took the opportunity to urge the chamber to put more liberal systems in place that would see foreign investors coming to the country.
Following the opening session, the Chamber elected its new 21 member council for the period 2010/2011.
