    This newsletter is an excellent vehicle for the Guyanese diaspora to share ideas. The Guyana government should harvest the experience and experitise of expatriates in Canada, the USA and the UK

    Thanks for bringing the publication to our attention. However, its very nature precludes criticism of Guyana government action. If the Guyanese diaspora is to share ideas a much more neutral forum must be identified. There is much expertise which has been rejected outright by previous administrations based purely on politics. Other useful projects such as Schoolnet Guyana only got one-sided support. The Jamaicans have a diaspora conference, for example, which is non-partisan and continues despite whatever change in government there is. With its racial division, it is unlikely that Guyanese can ever organise anything like that and get global diaspora support. We are truly in a sad mess.
