CSIS “The Guyanese Diaspora” reaffirms the need for a diaspora portal:

— GuyanaWorx launched and ready

The Washington based Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) recently launched a report on “The Guyanese Diaspora”

Its “Key Recommendation” is “to work collectively and deliberately to establish broader communications, engagement, and collaboration between Guyana and the diaspora… this initiative should be based on a comprehensive digital strategy to harness the human capital within the Guyanese diaspora as a resource to be tapped in Guyana’s development.

It’s key recommendation continued, “a cloud-based “portal,” including an online “community/platform” of diaspora experts, could serve as a framework and a formal means of communication between Guyana and the diaspora community.”

Salaudeen Nausrudeen, Founder of www.GuyanaWorx.com, commented that “a friend sent me the report and to my amazement, the key recommendation was exactly what I created and launched in September this year.”

Salaudeen is a US/Diaspora based marketing and business development consultant (www.positiveplans.com) with vast executive experience in Guyana and the USA.

During a recent online forum to launch and discuss “The Diaspora Report”, Salaudeen was invited to speak on GuyanaWorx, where he complemented CSIS for their undertaking and noted its timely release.  He emphasized the need to build the structures and technology to leverage the skills, experience and patriotism of the Diaspora.  He also noted the many challenges in the past to meaningfully execute on a Diaspora strategy and the enthusiasm he sees in the current administration to finally leverage the wealth and skills of the diaspora.

“I am your ideal Diaspora profile, I left Guyana as a kid, educated in the USA and returned to Guyana where I spent 11 years; so I know what Guyana needs and I know what the diaspora can offer, and that’s what inspired me to develop GuyanaWorx,” added Salaudeen.

GuyanaWorx is a bridge/portal connecting employers in Guyana with job seekers from around the world, especially the skilled and experienced Guyanese Diaspora population in the US, Canada, the Caribbean and further afield.

The Guyana economy is projected to grow significantly, in excess of 50% annually over the next decade.  Such growth is unprecedented and will precipitate a massive transformation of the country and its economy. The extraordinary growth will demand thousands of skilled and professional personnel that Guyana’s current workforce is unable to supply.  GuyanaWorx seeks to directly address and eliminate the human capital needs that are as critical as financial capital.

“This is the first iteration of the portal, we are continuously updating with new features and functionalities.  Other similar portals to leverage the Diaspora is also in the pipeline. So yes, Diaspora engagement will be easy and accessible,” commented Salaudeen.

    Job seekers from around the world?
    Ya, like Guyanese can get hired in India or China that easy!
    Let the overpopulated nationalists stay in their polluted countries!

    These same people will not let Jamaicans or Haitians to work in GT.

        Hurt feelings?
        The PPP is bringing in one set of Indians in GT to flood up the country with people who don’t speak our continental languages, not even the Hindustani Surinamese that is mixed with Creole languages.

        If it weren’t for us, the Black people, many PPP supporters will be riding that crowded train to death and a short and brutish life.
