In his keynote address at the Thank You gala reception on September 12, 2015 in Toronto, President  David Granger appealed to the Guyanese Diaspora in Canada to come home to help redevelop the country. I had compiled the attached report entitled “Prospects for Guyana” as a roadmap for the development of Guyana. The report is timely in view of President Granger’s remarks.
