Drug trafficking through air/sea ports makes it harder for legitimate companies

drug trafficking-cocaine-ochroAs drug traffickers continue to find ingenious ways to ship illicit substances out of Guyana, the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce (GCCI) is becoming more and more worried about the problems this could cause for the business sector. Early this week, a man was busted at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport after he attempted to ship cocaine stuffed in ochroes.

Today during an interview with Capitol News, President of GCCI Clinton Urling said it makes it harder for legitimate companies whenever these incidents occur.

The GCCI boss said the issue is further compounded with the fines that are attached to the airlines or shipping agencies.

Security has improved at the Cheddi Jagan International airport according to airport authorities. They are reporting heightened security checks, enhanced profiling techniques, greater intelligence gathering and increased presence of closed circuit television cameras.

The GCCI President said the private sector needs to put security measures in place, but he said the Police force needs to be more robust in their response.

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of
    Wordpress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking
    at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.
