THis DUMMY needs to go to lil ABC. The Demerara Factories were the target of closure since all the Cane would have ended up at Skeldon which was anticipated to process all the Cane from different parts of the Country. We know how that idea ended. Grow adamn brain before you write
The plan was to have two Mega Factories, first Skeldon and then one on East Coast, West Demerara was to become Cash crops industries, initially the land was to be leased to the people and help be given by the gov't in marketing etc., Churchill is talking about slavery days when there were 200 factories. Guyana needs more distilleries , their brand of Rum is known world wide, so use the factories to produce alcohol .
You may have a serious comprehension problem !
I was referring to the past twenty years where nothing was done to reverse the trend of decline. If one studies the industry from since there were over 300 factories he will see that the industry was able, because of astute management , to weather the economic storm. Now we eight grinding factories and efforts to consolidate production to survive are being resisted because of strong political interference instead of cooperation.
At one time there were over two hundred sugar factories operating in Guyana and as time went the demand dropped.
My comprehension is good, but you facts are not consistent, How many factories were there, 200 or 300, maybe it was 500. and you claim to be government advisor.
