GUYSUCO SURPASSES TARGET
–President lauds management, workers and other stakeholders
PRESIDENT Donald Ramotar has lauded the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) for successfully surpassing its first crop target.The President congratulated the management, staff and other stakeholders of the sugar company on surpassing its first crop target of 74,842 tonnes of sugar. The President noted that such achievement was not without major challenges, many of which hampered efforts to make the corporation viable and sustainable. Nevertheless, President Ramotar expressed admiration for the persistence and hard work of the GuySuCo community of stakeholders, who made the achievement possible. He encouraged the management, staff and other stakeholders to use this opportunity to further motivate themselves to greater accomplishments. President Ramotar also expressed his confidence that the corporation will regain its prominent position in the social and economic strata in the Guyanese society. He noted that determination and hard work are the key points to achieving desired targets. Climate has been one of the main issues affecting the production of sugar in Guyana. This is the first time in about six to ten crops that climate has not caused GuySuCo to prematurely end a crop, thus being unable to meet its targets.
