The contract that foreign investors sign with Guyana Government to buy prime resources such as gold, oil, Bauxite, lumber, fish and land should all have a “ No Sale” clause for at least 50 years. In the event that your investment is not profitable, file for bankruptcy and we are allowed to retain our resources. This is a huge scam been perpetuated on the Guyanese population by greedy investors and corrupt Government officials.
The Chinese are among the worse exploiters of this type of corruption. Africa is a prime example of legal rape and pillaging of natural resources by foreign companies.
In addition we should adapt immigration policies as in UAE. You cannot be a citizen here unless you have lived here continuously for at least 15 years, crime free and paying taxes.
We will issue you a work permit and legal residence. You cannot own property, you can lease for business purposes for a maximum 20 yrs where the lease is renegotiated to deal with inflation This is even if you are married to a Guyanese citizen since this is another scam.
The demographics of this country is changing rapidly and within 15 years Guyanese will be a minority in their own country if we do not adapt sensible immigration policies. We are not the USA, a country with a huge and solid foundation that can withstand mass immigration and strain on there infrastructure and resources. Even they are crying.
This new Government needs to have advisors who have the best interest of the citizens of Guyana and have a vision 100 yrs ahead. Not this kind of mediocre thinking that we see, putting band aids on huge problems.
Even to this day we are fixing sea defences by piling rocks this is a 500 yr old idea. Somewhat effective, but you will have to fix again.
There are hundreds of examples you can go through.
