Guyanese Naresh Singh is being considered for the position of Deputy Secretary General of CARICOM – 15th Feb 2013
Guyanese Naresh Singh is being considered for the position of Deputy Secretary General of CARICOM, but there may issues as to why he had to leave his previous positions with CIDA and related entities. The Guyana Government is backing him for the position and several other CARICOM countries are inclined to appoint him.
Naresh Singh once served as Director-General for Strategic Planning at CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency) in Ottawa , Canada. However, reports appearing in the Canadian Press indicate that Singh ran into problems with CIDA and other organizations there and was forced to resign.
He was also a program director at the International Institute for Sustainable Development in Winnipeg Canada, and Executive Director of the Caribbean Environmental Health Institute, based in Castries St. Lucia , and serving all CARICOM countries.
