Yes that is PPP thinking.  When they market Guyanese products and services in NY they confined it to Richmond Hill.

 

Tropical woods are in high demand for all sorts of design purposes, but these PPP clowns would rather the Chinese make the money from processing the wood in China for further export to the USA.

 

There is a whole architect/design community in NYC.  Has any one approached them?

A mahagony tree is worth millions of US dollars in China.


And yet the buy it from Guyana for a mere $100, and basemen seems happy that they should pocket the rest.

Mahagany trees are not in Guyana.

We now need to wait until after the designated period to see what develops.

 

 

So why havent they already done so, and now need to be told to do so by Trotman.  Last year ordinary Lindeners were complaining that the Chinese were selling raw logs and that few Guyanese were benefitting from this trade.  The Chinese were also destroying the roads, and not contributing to their upkeep.

 

Linden would have been a perfect site for such a plant, given its role as gate way to the interior.

 

This is just another PPP mess that must be cleaned up. They awarded contracts to these huge Asians companies, telling Guyanese that they could expect significant employment and value added production.  Instead they took bribes to look the other way.

A project for Linden like that takes a huge outlaying capital. With no returns for  a great many years. Even with Chinese capital, they would be skeptical to put out that amounts of money in Guyana. If the GOG wants to produce wood products, then they must promote it. Once up and running. Profit making. Recapture their costs by selling shares on the stock market.

 

Other than dat, as Itame said, "stop cutting the trees and white people will pay for not doing it. The Amazon is experiencing drought-something to do the winds prevailing in Costa Rica. The Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

Guyana is noted for many decorative tropical woods however.

 

There is a large market right there in the Caribbean for all of those high end villas which are now being built.

 

But the PPP prefered to sell raw wood at pennies, and are shameless in pretending otherwise, as are those who scream that their business acumen was top notch.

All Guyana needs to do is to demand that the Asian adhere to what they promised uinder their contract, or get lost.  It makes no sense to enagge in environmentally destructive activities for pennies.  When these trees are cut their needs to be remediation.  Who is going to pay for it. 

 

In addition 20% of the population remains unemployed.  You cannot scream high crime when many continue to starve or remain trapped in dead end occupations. 

 

This is why Guyana is so poor.  It sells its resources for limited value added and is unable to absorb a large part of its population in productive activities.

 

40 years ago there were all sorts of plans for the forestry sector, and even then a market existed.  Its utter laziness to scream that the best that we can do is sell raw logs and allow others to derive benefit from processing these materials.

And in fact the desertification of the Amazon is exactly Guyana's fate if it allo0ws rapacious cutting and export of raw logs, rather than the development of a more sustainable form of forestry focusing on value rather than volume.

 

But that is what those with a PPP mindset think of Guyana.....and then they boast that they are business minds.

 

BTW having white people pay Guyana to remain backward is a form of welfare.  When they tire of paying that, Guyana will be like those welfare queens who are "owed" support. 

 

If rich nations are concerned about carbon levels then let them begin to implement more sustainable energy sources, as it is THEY and not small poor nations like Guyana who account for most of the problem.

The rich and developed nations wantonly destroyed their trees; hence the current situation in the world.

 

Among the few nations in the world, Guyana has toe resources - forests and trees - to absorb and convert the carbon dioxide from the developed countries.

Wow, if PPP was in power, you will be singing a different tune.  Well, at least you are honest.

Which is exactly why Guyana cannot have Asians stripping our forests and exporting raw logs with no value added.

 

Another mess created by the PPP.

I said exactly the same when you were praising the Emperor of the TRees, while he screamed that getting welfare from Norway was a sign of economic development.

 

Of course he simultaneously allowed in Asians to scrape our forests bare, for pennies.
