GUYANA: VP Jagdeo is Guyana’s Finance Minister- Dr. Ashni Singh is his assistant

Jan 30, 2022 – Kaieteur News

Dr. Ashni Kumar Singh has, since the People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) administration took Office back in August 2020, presented three successive Budgets to the National Assembly for approval.

Dr Ashni Singh for all intents and purposes has been the substantive face for the Irfaan Ali led PPP/C administration’s finance portfolio.

His official appointment however, is not Minister of Finance. That position is substantively held by Vice President, Bharrat Jagdeo, a distinction confirmed on Friday when the administration announced a new $2,000 note denomination for circulation.
