By Tangerine Clarke

Guyana’s Ambassador to Washington, Bayney Karran, in collaboration with the Guyana government has extended an invitation to Guyanese and Caribbean exhibitors to seize the opportunity to meet, network and negotiate deals at the country’s 2012 Trade Fair and Exposition set to take place from Sept. 27 to 30 in Georgetown.

Guy-Expo, which was launched in 1995, has become the Republic’s largest premier trade fair and exposition that attract thousands of international companies and organizations each year to showcase their skills and creative work.

Pirated textbooks is “industrial issue” – Luncheon – British envoy responds

Pirated textbooks is “industrial issue” – Luncheon

Friday, 21 September 2012 – Demerara Waves

The government says it is in talks with textbook publishers and is unconcerned with the furore created by the opposition and media over its decision to buy pirated books.
This was relayed by Cabinet Secretary Dr. Roger Luncheon at a news briefing on Thursday, September 20, 2012.

“The engagement would have to be with the publishers, we’re not going to be worried with what the media and politicians say because the media and politicians do not figure significantly in our own handling of this matter.                 Continue reading

Mark Benshop: APNU-PNC Incompetence – commentary

Mark Benshop: APNU-PNC Incompetence  – commentary

Why should citizens continue to embrace political parties (and the INCOMPETENT Members of Parliament) who do not have their best interests at heart?

Let’s address the issue of the APNU/PNC and how they have thus far FAILED to adequately represent their constituency.

(1) The leadership is alleged to have agreed for the increase of electricity tariff in Linden, after sitting with the PPP/C in private meetings without the knowledge/input of the Regional Chairman, Mr. Sharma Raheem Solomon, or the MPs representing Region #10, nor the people of Linden.

Immediately following the exposure of the ‘secret deal,’ the smoke hit the roof and the APNU’s Leadership quickly removed themselves from the scene, leaving the young/dynamic Regional Chairman, his MPs (mainly Ms. Vanessa Kissoon) and the people of Linden to battle the PPP.                 Continue reading

Four Reasons Why Romney Might Still Win

Four Reasons Why Romney Might Still Win

By Robert Reich – NationOfChange OP editor

“With gas prices rising, corporate profits shrinking, most of Europe in recession, Japan still a basket case, and the Chinese economy slowing, the upcoming job reports are unlikely to be stellar.”

Can Romney possibly recover? A survey conducted between Sept. 12 and Sept. 16 by the Pew Research Center — before the “47 percent victim” video came to light – showed Obama ahead of Romney 51% to 43% among likely voters.

That’s the biggest margin in the September survey prior to a presidential election since Bill Clinton led Bob Dole, 50% to 38% in 1996.

And, remember, this recent poll was done before America watched Romney belittle almost half the nation.             Continue reading
