., 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 .
The PPP did nothing about West Demerara before the elections and based on what they did on the East Bank, you bet that the lands would have been sold out, below cost to their friends. They are just engaging in racial instigation to hide this fact.
They said long ago that both Wales and Uitvlugt were to be closed down. The fact that they didn't begin to transition the workers away from sugar to other crops suggests to me that they had no intention of doing so, now that West Dem has become an extension of the metro G/T and lands are increasingly valuable for real estate.
In fact DDL and/or Banks DIH could have been considered to do a partial buy out of Guysuco to secure the production of molasses for their brands. Its specific brands that are well regarded and so there is no need to develop more distilleries.
