AFC wants revision of Cummingsburg Accord by Feb 14

The leadership of the Alliance For Change (AFC) is to formally write A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) on a revision of the Cummingsburg Accord which birthed the coalition and saw it winning the 2015 general elections.

In a statement yesterday, the AFC’s National Executive Committee says that it wants a review and revision of the ground-breaking accord by February 14 next year, its third anniversary and the date on which the life of the coalition is to expire.

With the end of November already approaching, critics will likely ask why this process has not yet begun. In recent weeks, the AFC has been pilloried over decisions taken by President David Granger and the government such as the unilateral appointment of retired justice James Patterson as Chairman of GECOM. The AFC has been criticised for supporting this decision and not insisting on being consulted…..

They are part of the coalition government. What? They want us to believe that they care? Well, they are a bunch of liars  Their statements and requests just point to how useless, ineffective, irrelevant and powerless they are, unless it is to do what Granger , Harmon and Trottman tell them to do. it is Holder, AFC member, now minister of agriculture that closed down Wales sugar estate. Like where's, they sold themselves. Now they want to argue about the price after Granger had his way with them.

Given that the EU will soon no longer need our sugar and there will soon be no market for Guyana, beyond CARICOM, do you suggest that Guyana produces sugar and then burns it?

Sugar in Guyana is dead, beyond a small production level needed for molasses for the rum industries of CARICOM, and for regional sugar consumption.  This is a point that you all don't seem to understand. 

Why should the remaining Guyanese be taxed to support the jobs of only some?  What other industry in Guyana receives the massive amount of financial support that sugar does?

So if the AFC agrees that sugar has to be miniaturized and marginal estates shut down then they are CORRECT!

I believe that sugar, if managed efficiently and if there is innovation regarding its use, spin-off, sale, marketing, etc, it can be made to be profitable. The government should take up the offer by the Private sector to take over Wales and run it.

I have not seen a credible cost benefit analysis yet on the sugar sector. Were I younger and had more time on my hand, I would have volunteered to do one. The government has to think globally and be dynamic in its outlook and analysis. They are stuck in a box, unable to see beyond the walls. They are unidimensional  instead of being multi dimension in addressing the issues, problems and possibilities in this sector Furthermore, we are still awaiting the transition plans for the estate closed, to be closed and the help supposedly promised by them to workers. Shows how limited they are about what it really takes to successfully manage change.

heck, all Guyanese are taxed to support activities that the  government, regardless of whether it is Coalition or the PPP, deem appropriate. It does not necessarily mean that all of those taxed receive any direct benefit from the taxes they pay to support some of the activities deemed necessary by the government. Some things are deemed social or economic good though we might not benefit directly from them. Additionally, government revenues and economic activities increase through the multiplier effect. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 If it wasn't in the "social good" to maintain Guymine when bauxite ceased to be profitable then the same applies to Guysuco.  Word to you, because sugar is more dominated by Indians than was bauxite doesn't mean that it deserves more support.

Sugar production in Guyana and the rest of the CARICOM was a residue of our former colonial ties.  The industries were dominated by 2 British companies, Bookers and Tate & Lyle. When the UK entered the EU (then the EEC) preferential arrangements were extended for sugar to protect those two British companies.

Tate & Lyle and Bookers have moved on and no longer need this support.  The fact that Guyana chose not to move on because of the hysterics of the fake "doctor" Jagdeo is Guyana's problem.  The EU will be removing all limitations on production by its sugar producers, and will be dumping this excess production on world markets.

The EU no longer needs our sugar and the UK has said NOTHING about what its trade ties to its former colonies will be because of Brexit.  The UK is looking out for its own interests and doesn't give two figs about Guyana.

I very much doubt that the private sector wants Wales estate for anything other than a new gated community.  Sugar is dead. Give it a decent burial. All that we will have left will be limited production on a few Berbice estates where growing conditions are most favorable.  Production will be limited to local and regional markets, much of that molasses for the rum industries of CARICOM.
