The critics of the oil contract and reality – Adam Harris

The critics of the oil contract and reality

Feb 25, 2018  – Kaieteur News Columnist – Adam Harris

Guyana is changing and this is because of the news of the oil discovery.

The change has been subtle, but Friday’s Mashramani float parade exposed the impact the find has had on the country. There were many overseas-based Guyanese who came home, many more than on previous occasions.

Film Review

The Silk Road will consist of a network of superhighways and high speed trains connecting China to western Europe via Kazakhstan and Russia.

In China, the Silk Road begins at Chongqing, a western city of 30 million dubbed the Chinese Silicon Valley for computer hardware. At present, Europe imports most of their computers from China. At present, it takes them four months to reach China by sea. With the completion of the overland Silk Road network, this time could be reduced to a month or less. Shipping goods overland also enables Chinese companies to avoid growing tensions with the US in the South China Sea.
