…Harmon tells TT forum coalition restored Guyana’s international reputation
…wows Trinidad business community to come here and invest

Joseph Harmon addresses conference

Director-General of the Ministry of the Presidency, Joseph Harmon recently told an investment forum in Trinidad and Tobago that the Coalition Government has removed the stain of a ‘Pariah State’ from Guyana to a position of respect and honour in the world’s community of nations.

Harmon, the former Minister of State was accompanied by Prime Minister, Moses Nagamootoo, Minister of Social Protection, Amna Ally, Minister of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson and Mayor of Georgetown, Ubraj Narine at a high-level investment forum in Port of Spain last week Friday hosted by the Guyana High Commissioner in that country, Cammie Ramsaroop.

    Come on Guyana
    Who wants Trinidadian “guns and drugs”
    oil wealth investment.?? Similar guns and drugs peddlers in Guyana…rich oligarchs !

    Guyana can obtain “interest free loans”
    from IMF/WB using oil discovered as “collateral”….use it to develop Guyana’s
    badly underfunded infrastructure …hospitals schools etc

    Guyana land of many waters led by political jackasses elected by donkies.
    Sorry sometimes one must be cruel to be kind.

    Surely guyanese do not wish for the “guns and drugs” culture of triniland to infiltrate its guyanese counterparts.

    POS is now one of the most dangerous cities
    In the carribean if not the planet…shootings and kidnappings daily !!!

    America seems to have blacklisted Guyanese Muslims from the country though:

    A number of Canadian Muslims have been turned away at the Canada-U.S. border in recent weeks, immigration lawyers say.

    Those denied entry include a prominent Guyana-born Toronto imam who serves as a chaplain with the Peel Regional Police and an Iraqi Turkmen community leader who has family members fighting ISIS in the Middle East.

    The two men — who were denied entry at different border crossings and were not travelling together — are among at least six Canadian Muslim men who have been denied entry at the U.S. border over the last two weeks.

    The men and their families, all of whom are Canadian citizens, were given little in the way of explanation by border officials for the decision to deem them inadmissible.

    Neither Guyana nor Iraq are among the seven Muslim-majority countries subject to U.S. President Donald Trump’s “Muslim ban” executive order, which essentially blocks refugees and visitors from those countries from entering the U.S.

    Both men were told to apply for visas at the U.S. consulate in Toronto before returning to the border to seek entry — an unusual process for people who hold Canadian passports.

    The six men are represented by the Toronto-area immigration firm CILF — Caruso Guberman Appleby. Lawyers there say that if they’re seeing this level of activity at their law firm, there may be many other Canadian nationals facing similar problems at the border.

    “We’ve seen a lot more in the last few weeks and we don’t know what to attribute it to. We know the climate there in the U.S. has changed, it’s a bit different, but at the same time there are processes and procedures and people should be afforded opportunities to challenge a case,” Daud Ali, a lawyer at CILF, told CBC News.

    First was wooing overseas-based Guyanese to use their Yankee savings to buy land and develop it to developed world standards for 250,000+ “expats”, while school pickney here have to use latrine as toilet and conduct classes under trees and chicken pens.

    Now they wooing Trinis to come here.

    Sounds like a scam. If the GoG claims there is so much oil to make us all Arabian millionaires and driving on Dubai-plated roads, why the need to lure Trinis and overseas-based Guyanese to use their money as investments?

    Bernie Madoff did something like this before he was arrested, trying to get as many people into his Ponzi scheme using false promises.

    If a Guyanese from the USA uses his or her money to buy land and develop it for expats, what happens when the expat already bought a mansion from Pradoville or the elites? What happens to the value of the land as it will decline, since the average Guyanese can’t afford developed world expat housing.

    And Chinese nationals only want the land to build their large malls, and that’s it. They wouldn’t pay expat prices for an expat-style home.
