Commerce Chamber worried about politics and business
Doing business in Guyana takes a special effort and those persons who venture in must be commended. This is the view of Speaker of the National Assembly, Raphael Trotman. He made those comments while addressing a luncheon organized by the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI). Trotman was the guest speaker at the luncheon and he pointed to the reality of Guyana’s Governance structure, noting that all the actors seem not to fully understand their role.
Trotman’s comments came after Chairman of the Private Sector Commission, Ron Webster, delivered some stinging remarks to the nations politicians, asking them to put the issues and people first.
Webster also drew attention to the functioning of Guyana’s Parliament drawing a link between conflict in Parliament and subsequent unrest.
Webster said, that there must be a will to bring legislation that is necessary to the National Assembly.
The luncheon attracted several business leaders, Politicians and members of the diplomatic community.
