Mitts, I was referring specifically to comparative advantage for producing and selling products.
i am surprised how things are done here. They seem unable to integrate the production at the primary level, the packaging and processing, and marketing systems to take advantage of the opportunities that exist both in Guyana and internationally. They pay lip service to supply chain management, to local product, of products other than sugar and rice, of extending the production process here in Guyana. The relevant government agencies and the local capitalists seem to be unable to get over the mental block they have.a
i grow my own guava, vegetables, fruits, peppers, sugar cane and use all to make stuff for us to use. Somehow, many think that this is beneath them or that they do not have the extra hour in the evening to do some gardening.
Thank you Mr. Zed. I feel that most Guyanese can live off the land. But I think the Barrels and Remittances have created a superficial dependency and laissez-faire attitude.
I am happy to learn that you grow your own.
