s that principles and purposes may

be fully implemented


-resident Bharrat Jagdeo,
speaking at the 2005 World
Summit of the United Nations
Friday, calledfor urgent reform
,of the international body, so
'that its principles and purposes
,nay be implemented.
The President posited, too,
That Guyana had made
'appreciable progress towards
'tJhe Millennium Development
4Goals, despite serious financial
and human constraints.
But unfortunately, these
'gains are now being threatened
'by "influences beyond our
"control".
-Following is the full text of
the President's address:

Mr. President, Mr. Co-
Chairman, Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen
THE international
development goals, especially
the Millennium
Development Goals, which we
set ourselves at the
Millennium Summit five
years ago and which we are
called upon to review; at this
Session, have been a major
benchmark for development.
Addressing as they do such
fundamentals as health and
,education, they constitute


important prerequisites for
our economic and social
advancement.
Despite serious
financial and human
constraints, my country has
made appreciable progress
towards these objectives.
Through a progressive
poverty reduction strategy and
the allocation of more


PRESIDENT BHARRAT J
budgetary resources to the
social sector, we have managed
to reach the poor in our society
and to provide them with
increased opportunities to
improve their lives.
Sad to say, however,
our hard-won gains are now
threatened by forces and
influences that are well beyond
our control.
An example of this is

the case where, although Europe
has declared support for the
Millennium Development Goals,
the European Commission has
nonetheless made proposals to
drastically reduce the price of
sugar exports from the
Association of African,, Caribbean
and Pacific States, which if
implemented will deal a
devastating blow to their
economies,
forcing a large
number of
people into
ex t r e m\e
poverty. In th
case of Guyana,
our economy
stands to lose
some forty
million dollars
per annum, a
sum that
negates the eight
AGDEO million dollars
debt relief which
is expected to flow from the
recent G-8 decisions.
This action is typical of
some developed countries which,
while giving with great fanfare
some assistance to the developing
countries, they quietly take away
even more through harmful trade
and economic policies. Worse yet,
despite their asseverations of
partnership and commitment to
consultation and coherence, they


ecidae unilaterauy on measures
that adversely affect the lives of
millions in the developing
countries. As i is therefore., we
will be hard put to achieve the
Millennium Deselopment Goals
within the time-frames set..
Altogether, our
experience one that I know is
shared by many others, has been
daunting. We cannot avoid the
conclusion that while the
realization ofthe Millennium
Development Goals provides the
necessary foundation for national
development, adequate economic
and social progress cannot be
achieved in the absence of a more
comprehensive framework that
encompasses significant
development and investment

cooperation as well as the

magnified by the spread of

Mr. President,

The multiplication of threats to

democratic in its decision-
making and more effective in the
discharge of the many mandates
with which it has been entrusted.
Of particular urgency is
the need to reform the Security
Council, the organ responsible
for the maintenance of global
peace and security, to allow it
to better cope with the several
threats to our safe and secure
existence. The records of the
Working Group which was set
up for this purpose will show
that widespread agreement had
been reached on the expansion
of the Council in both categories
of membership to provide
greater balance in representation
and greater credibility to the
Council's activities. This has
presented us with a window of
opportunity which, if not
grasped now, may remain
indefinitely closed.
Let us therefore not
be faint-hearted but rather,
with boldness accelerate and
complete the process of
reform so that the principles
and purposes, for which the
United Nations stands, may
be fully implemented.
I thank you.

Iran gets new US nuclear warning


IRAN should abandon
"forever" nuclear weapons
ambitions, US Secretary of
State Condoleezza Rice has
told the United Nations
General Assembly.
Making her maiden speech








A e


All eyes are on the Iranian le
speech in New York
to the body, Ms Rice said Iran
threatened the effectiveness of
global efforts to contain nuclear
non-proliferation.
And she said the UN
Security Council should be
ready to intervene.


Iran's leader said his
country had the resources to
defend its interests and he
accused the US of "bad
intentions".
President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad was talking to
CNN before his own
scheduled speech to the
assembly on Saturday
in which he is expected
to unveil new nuclear
SIp proposals.
UN Secretary
General Kofi Annan
opened the day's
session by warning of
the spread of nuclear
weapons and terrorism
but he did not refer to
any state by name.
"We face growing
risks of proliferation
and catastrophic
terrorism, and the stakes
-are too high to continue
down a dangerous path
of diplomatic
brinkmanship," he told
the assembly's annual
session in New York.
ader's
NON-NEGOTIABLE
Ms Rice advocated
expanding the Security Council,
an issue omitted from the
reform package agreed at the UN
World Summit, which ended on
Friday.
The Security Council, she
said, must be able to act


effectively "when countries like
Iran threaten the effectiveness of
the global non-proliferation
regime".
"When diplomacy has been
exhausted, the Security Council
must become involved," she
added.
Iran, she said, should return
to recent negotiations with
European Union
representatives, and "abandon
forever its plans for a nuclear
weapons capability".
Mr Ahmadinejad,' who
insists Iran wants nuclear power
for peaceful purposes only. told
CNN his country had "the
means to defend and obtain its
rights".
Asked if Tehran might use
its oil leverage in any dispute.
he replied: "Any intelligent.
healthy smart human being
should use eyery resource in
order to maintain his or her
freedom and independence."
Iran has said repeatedly that
its controversial uranium
conversion work is not
negotiable and it now wants to
negotiate with Europe on
uranium enrichment the next,
and more controversial,.stage of
the nuclear fuel cycle.
It is also suggesting
broadening negotiations to bring
other nations into joint ventures
as a trust-building exercise.
President Ahmadinejad, a
hardline conservative elected in


June, is expected to outline
these proposals in his speech.

FURTHER WORK
Other issues not covered
in detail at the World Summit
may be raised at the session
of the General Assembly,
which brings together
ministers from the UN's 191
member-states, and is due to
last 12 days.


Ms Rice called for a
"lasting revolution of reform"
and argued that countries
with poor human rights
should not be allowed to sit
on UN committees judging
other nations' records.
Much disappointment
greeted the 35-page document
adopted by the leaders, which
had been diluted over long
negotiations.


It omitted references to
disarmament, reform of the UN"
Security Council and hard
details of a plan to create a new
human rights council.
However, the document
passed at the historic summit
in New York held to mark
60 years of the UN as a body
- did contain commitments to
fight global poverty and
reform the UN's structure.

IlCOM being eroded by the politics

pointed dilemma facing the Jagdeo
in the administration:

uyana it is facing a stunning projected
gains loss of approximately US$40


million .a year from sugar
exports to Europe as a
consequence of the European
Union's sugar reform
programme.
Such actions, the President
stressed, are typical of some

with "great fanfare some

away even more through
harmful trade and economic
policies..'."
Leaders from across the

out last week the enormous

Some of this frustration

Well said, Mr McKinnon.
United Nations Secrertary,
General Kofi Annan was
even more passionate in
denouncing the failures by

The sad reality,
however, is that after last

'BELLING THE CAT' FOR WI CRICKET


B? e m as- A-JPais i cie79n "


By Rickey Singh

WITH THE credibility factor
in the management of West
Indies cricket looming larger,
the Caribbean Community's
Prime Ministerial Sub-
committee on Cricket is
slated to meet in Grenada on
Friday (Septenber 23).
The challenges facing both
the West Indies Cricket Board
(WICB) and its wholly-owned
subsidiary, Cricket World Cup
(CWC) 2007; the poor relations
between the WICB and the
West Indies Players Association
(WIPA), as well concern over
selection of the best possible
team for the coming Australia
tour, will be among matters to
be discussed.
Rejection in a statement
from the WICB, published
yesterday, of significant
conclusions by the three-
member committee headed by
Justice Anthony Lucky, could
only aggravate the credibility of
the Board.
Given the serious nature of
some of the unresolved
problems that could eventually
impact on the hosting of World
Cup 2007 for which


.4f


TEDDY GRIFFITH
CARICOM governments are
committed to spending some
US$250 million, it seems no
longer a question of IF the
Community's political


directorate should become
involved in the WICB/WIPA
disputes, but how SOON.
Additionally, since the
decision at last July's
CARICOM Summit in St. Lucia
for the Community to resort to
a "Good Office" role to help
resolve the WICB/WIPA
lingering disputes over players
contract, there has been the


recent dramatic development of
the resignation of Barbadian
business executive, Rawle
Brancker, as Chairman of CWC
2007.
The hasty assumption of
that position by recently elected
WICB President, Ken Gordon
of Trinidad and Tobago, has in
no way damperned concerns
over the claimed
unilateralist management style of
CWC's Chief Executive
Officer (CEO), Chris
Dehring of Jamaica
that was cited as a
significant factor in
Brancker's decision to
quit the chairmanship.
Ahead of this
Friday's meeting
in Grenada, to be
chaired by Prime
4 Minister Keith
Mitchell, who has
been maintaining an
active interest in
developments at both
the level of the WICB
and CWC 2007, the
West Indies selectors
have formally
requested 30 of the
region's cricketers to
indicate by tomorrow
(Monday) their
availability for the
coming three-test series in
Australia..
It has not escaped attention
that this latest move by the WI
selectors has come without any


known new initiative to close
the yawning, damaging gap in
the disputes that have plagued
WICB/WIPA relations since the
secretly signed highly
controversial sponsorship
contract with Digicel in July
2004.
The open row over the
circumstances that led to the
contract by which Digicel


replaced Cable and Wireless as
new sponsor of West Indies
cricket, had led to the
establishment last June of the
three-member "sponsorship
review committee" under the
chairmanship of Justice Lucky
of Trinidad and Tobago.

GORDON'S CHALLENGE
In what would normally
have been a so-called
'honeymoon' period for a new
President of the WICB, is
turning out to be quite
a crucial challenge in
good governance for
the-Board's new man
at the helm, the 75-
year-old Gordon.
Armed with a
copy of the three-
member sponsorship
review committee's
report on how Digicel
replaced Cable and
Wireless as new
sponsor of West Indies
cricket, Gordon is to,
meet shortly with
Prime Minister
Mitchell, possibly
before Friday's
meeting of the Prime
Ministerial Sub-
committee on Cricket.
WIPA has also shown interest
in a presence at that meeting.
Following Friday's meeting,
at which Jamaica, Trinidad and
Tobago, St. Lucia and Antigua
and Barbuda, will be


represented, Mitchell is
expected to submit for
consideration and urgent action
a report to the Community's
Heads of Government, through
current chairman, Prime
Minister Kenny Anthony of
St. Lucia.
An area of specific focus
would be the implications for
World Cup 2007 over ongoing
controversies pertaining to the
Digicel sponsorship and the
need for "accountability and
transparency" in the
management of WICB and CWC
affairs.
Against the backdrop of
sharp criticisms, over
management practices at the level
of both the WICB and CWC,
even some CARICOM leaders
who were initially reluctant over
engagement with the WICB
executive, are now anxious for
"urgent and appropriate
responses", to quote one of
them, in the best interest of
West Indies cricket.
After the sudden recent
resignation of Rawle Brancker
as CWC chairman, and a
meeting he had with Prime
Minister Owen Arthur, the
Barbados Prime Minister said in
a press statement:


RAWLEBRANCKER


"The circumstances
surrounding his (Brancker's)
resignation leave no doubt that
there are many deep and
troubling issues pertaining to
accountability and transparency


that have to be addressed to give
assurance that the wonderful
plans that have been developed
for the staging of the World Cup
will not be compromised".

BRANCKER'S CALL
Given the welcome tone of
Arthur's statement, I asked
Brancker to explain what he
would consider an appropriate
response, at the level of
Caricom, to deal with what the
Barbados Prime Minister has
identified as "many deep and
troubling issues pertaining to
accountability and
transparency"..
Brancker, who
had gone public over
his sharp differences
in management
involving CEO
Dehring as well as
immediate, past
WICB President
Teddy Griffith, was
fortright in declaring:
"Considering the
e n o r m o u s
investments being
made by _
governments to host
the World Cup, I
would urge them to
collectively authorise
a due diligence
exercise and forensic
audit into expenditures
associated with the hosting of
that historic event"
As the WICB prepares to
release the "Lucky committee
report", along with a statement
of its own, there have been some
self-serving unofficial media
leaks about contradictions and
"inaccuracies" in the document.
At the same time, as the
WICB remains conspicuously
silent on the fate of the secretly
signed contract with Digicel,
which is at the core of the
disputes with the WIPA, hints
are being expediently circulated
about the likely removal of
Justice Lucky as chairman of
the WICB's code of conduct and
disciplinary committee.
The judge has been quite
sharp in denouncing what he
considers very poor
management by the Board that
led to the Digicel contract. He


remains unapolgetic for what he
has said in the report as well as
in media interviews.
He is also reported as
saying that he. would "lose no
sleep" if those who "should
have resigned", now want him
removed from the code and
disciplinary committee.
We await the outcome of
Friday's Prime Ministerial Sub-
committee's meeting, and what
action the CARICOM political
directorate as a whole intends to
take, amid all the questions
being raised about the credibility
on WICB/CWC management.


KEN GORDON
Questions of relevance,
for instance, on: Who will
bell the proverbial 'cat' on
what's to be done about the
Digicel contract that remains
a tightly guarded secret
among its key players?
Is Mr Gordon going to
remain both President of WICB
and chairman of its wholly-
owned subsidiary, CWC? If so,
what will be the guiding
principle for him and the
directors to be appointed or
reappointed'?
Further, if Lucky is
removed as chairman of the
WICB's code of conduct and
disciplinary committee for
telling it like it is, or as he
sees it, then what message
will Gordon and his WICB
colleagues be conveying to
the region's people-the
ultimate stakeholders of West
Indies cricket?

Minister Rodrigues dismisses claim


by APA on proposed Amerindian Act


(GINA) Minister of
Amerindian Affairs, Carolyn
Rodrigues has dismissed the
claim recently made by David
James of the Amerindian
People's Association (APA)
that Government did not
change the name of the new
Amerindian Act to the
'Indigenous People's Act'
because it wants to avoid its
obligation under
international law.
"I think once again
we're seeing the APA
doing what they do best,
that is. distort what the
fact is concerning this
Amerindian Act... now
this is the most ludicrous
reason I've ever heard of
before. There is no one
definition of indigenous
people and that in itself
can tell you that there
may be some
difficulties," the
Minister said.
Quoting the various
definitions of indigenous
people by the
International Labour
Organisation (ILO), the
Organisation of American.
States (OAL) and the World
Bank, Minister Rodrigues
emphasised'that not because
the word 'Amerindian' is used
on the Bill means ihai


Amerindians would not
benefit under international
law.
She pointed out that the
word 'indigenous' also refers to
people who have been displaced,
so if this was the word used then
in terms of the law,
complications could arise, if not
now, then in the future.
"If the APA is so concerned


CAROLYN RODRIGUES
about the term indigenous and
they're so in love with it, why
do they call themselves APA?
Why haven't they changed their
name as yet? Maybe they should
consider that, so I think this is
just playing with words here."
the Minister contended.


The Amerindian Affairs
Minister noted that the APA
needs to look at its
recommendation submitted to
her Ministry which says that the
people in Amerindian
communities should submit their
applications requesting titles to
the Minister.
"They're saying that the
people should submit an
application requesting
title or extension of title
and the Minister, they're
saying the
Minister ... either
approves the application
and directs the relevant
agencies," she said.
The Minister then
referred to the APA's
statement that the
Minister of Amerindian
Affairs has unfettered
b -. rights where the Act is
concerned.
"Of course, I'm the
Minister of Amerindian
Affairs and whoever is the
Minister of Amerindian
Affairs will do that.
You're responsible for
Amerindian affairs, so you have
to deal with these issues. Who
they want to do it?" she asked.
The Minister said that the
submissions in the new Act is
similar to what .was
recommended. :


"The people apply to the
M i n i s t er- c ertai n
investigations have to be
done. Once certain criteria are
met, then we go on to the next
stage of titling," the Minister
.added.
Regarding the APA's claim
that the Act does not recognize
indigenous people's rights to
land, especially occupation and
use, the Minister said that the
beginning of the Act states this
clearly.
"It says 'an Act to provide
for the recognition and
protection of the collective rights
of Amerindian communities, the
granting of land to Amerindian
communities and the promotion
of good governance within
Amerindian communities", she
said, quoting the section of the
Act.
The Minister added, "the
fact that we've included a
procedure to deal with land is
because we recognize this and
yes, the Constitution speaks
about the right to property...
a lot of people in other
countries would like to see
this happen."
Minister Rodrigues
strongly emphasised that for
an Amerindian community to
claim land, they must have
simply lived on the land for at
least 25 years.

Education, enforcement of laws to



combat Trafficking In Persons -Minister Shadick


(GINA) Communities located
in remote areas across the
country need to.adhere to
'laws and regulations which
govern Guyana, and to which
persons living on the
coastland are subjected. This,
according to Minister of
Human Services and Social
Security, Bibi Shadick, plays
an integral role in the fight
against Trafficking in
Persons (TIP).
The Minister made these
remarks today during a visit to
Kamarang, Region 7 (Cuyuni/
Mazaruni), where she met
residents to discuss issues
affecting their community, with
the emphasis on TIP.
"What we need is for the


leaders of the communities to
educate their people, so that
when they seek employment
outside of their villages and it
doesn't work out, they would
know what steps can be taken
for their safe return home,"
Minister Shadick said.
Many individuals ihe
Minister said, travel into
outlying areas to solicit persons,
predominantly young women,
to work for them in
Georgetown, and along the
coastland. However, when these
women arrive with the
expectations of doing legitimate
work, they are faced with
circumstances, which either
directly or indirectly force them
into prostitution or other illegal


activities.
"There is a perception that
our Amerindian brothers and
sisters are more easily
deceived...so when they are
forced into such situations they
have great difficulty returning to
their villages or seeking help
from the police," the Minister
indicated.
The onus the Minister said,
is on the village leaders, who
should ensure that persons are
educated and sensitised to such
dangers. Additionally, persons
should not be taken from their
villages without the
foreknowledge of their parents/
guardians. Their intended
destination along with the
identity of those who have


'employed' them should also be
known.
Minister Shadick stressed
the importance of the outlying
communities adhering to
national laws, and emphasised
that, "the same laws that apply
to persons living on the
coastland are applicable to those
living in the hinterland.
Regardless of your race,
tradition or culture, we are all


Guyanese, and therefore we are
all governed by the laws of
Guyana.
The TIP Bill was presented
to the National Assembly in
Noveriber last year and 30
sensitisation campaigns were
conducted in all ten
administrative regions of the
country.
Subsequently, Minister
Shadick opened a three-day TIP


seminar on April 19 and an anti-
trafficking in persons unit has been
established within the Ministry of
Labour, Human Services and Social
Security, which is geared towards
handling all matters relating to TIP.
These developments are
part of the Administration's
thrust to curb this illegal
activity, which has become
prevalent both locally and
internationally, in recent years.

Flyovers Just a step away


(WEEKEND Nation)
Government is "a few days"
away from signing the
Memorandum of Agreement
that should pave the way for
work on flyovers to begin.
Minister of Public Works
Gline Clarke said yesterday
that they were "hoping" to
get it signed soon, but noted
that environmental studies
still had to be done.
The proposal is for eight
flyovers, of a simple steel
design, to be built along the
ABC Highway.
They will be constructed
in such a way that allows for
additional lanes without
tearing down the original
structures to take traffic


travelling along the ABC
Highway into centre lanes
and over the roundabouts.
According to initial plans
only traffic exiting, or
entering the highway at the
roundabouts will need to
enter the now daily
congested circle.
Additionally, bridges are
to be constructed over the
ever-clogged traffic signal-
controlled junctions outside
Pine Hill Dairy and the
Cable & Wireless (formerly
BET) building at Wildey.
United States company
3S Structural Steel
Solutions LLC, of Maryland,
won the bid to construct the
overheads, while local firms


CO Williams Construction
and Rayside Construction
would also be involved.
The flyovers will be
designed to last a minimum of
100 years with minimal
maintenance.
Minister of Public Works
Gline Clarke had said during
the Estimates Debate in the
House of Assembly in March,
that eight sites along the ABC
Highway had been selected for'
flyovers.
He also said the highway
would be widened and traffic
lights synchronised at a cost of
US$60 million or less.
Apart from the flyovers,

S(nod tour s by ya-n',


(WEEKEND Nation)
BARBADIANS will get a
chance to tour the sleek
supersonic Concorde aircraft
from December.
According to the chief
executive officer of the Barbados


B'dos businessmen

'have plans in place'

(WEEKEND Nation) With the destruction Hurricane Ivan
inflicted on the business community in Grenada still fresh
in their minds last year, Barbadian businessmen appear to
be far more conscious of the need to brace themselves for such
disasters.
This is the view of Ruall Harris, executive director of the
Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry, who said members
of the Grenada Chamber of Commerce had shared their experiences
with their counterparts here and the discussions "awoke (in them)
the importance of preparing for a natural disaster in the private
sector".
When asked if he was satisfied with the business sector's level
of readiness, Harris stated: "I'm not sure that one is ever satisfied
about the level of preparedness. One of the problems that we have
in this country is that we have not had a hurricane impact for a
number of years, so we are hoping that we are prepared and that
when the impact comes that our pans can be responded to
effectively. So I'm optimistic that we should be prepared."
The Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry plays a
very critical role in preparing the private sector for the hurricane
season and some of its members sit on several governmental
committees. In addition. it publishes a hurricane hints brochure,
which among other things. advises businesses on how to prepare
for the season and the close down phase if a system threatens.
Harris explained that businesses which were not crucial to
preparation for a hurricane were usually encouraged to close early
so their employees could go home to complete their own
preparations.
"On the other hand, those businesses which are important for
the preparation of a hurricane super markets, lumber companies
and so on should make sure that their employees can get home
after the stores are closed.
"And in that context, perhaps it would be necessary for
some businesses to make sure that they have private
transportation to take their employees home," he said.


Highway are also to be
widened to four lanes.
The work is expected to
be completed in two years.

Tourism Investment Inc
(BTII), Darcy Boyce, the short-
term plan involves spending $2
million to prepare the existing
site to commence tours.
Over the longer term he
explained, the BTII will be
working with the Ministry of
International Transport, British
Airways and an independent
museum designer to commence
work on the proposed aircraft
museum next year.
He told a Press conference at
Parliament Buildings yesterday,
the BTII has already started
negotiations on a proposal with
a team of local and English
investors who had experience
with museums, and who have
already worked on other
Concorde aircraft around the
world. So far, the roof of the
hangar which was destroyed by
Hurricane Ivan last year has been,
replaced and preparatory work
has already started on the
outside td provide adequate
parking and reception areas for
patrons. On the inside work was
being done to ensure adequate
access to the aircraft.
Apart from viewing the
supersonic jet. the joint venture
would also include other attractions
such as aircraft assimilation, rides
and cultural attractions.
"We hope that we can get
those negotiations concluded for
the end of this year so that
work can begin on that early
next year.
"But in the meantime,
the Concorde would be
available for people to visit,"
Boyce said.

RESIDENTS of the East
Bank of Demerara are
convinced that a solution to
ethnic conflicts in Guyana
exists. However, finding this
will require the involvement
of all, according to a press
release from the Ethnic
Relations Commission
(ERC).
This was disclosed at a
special consultation held under
the theme 'Securing Ethnic
Harmony and Peace' at the
Prairie International Hotel at
Coverden.
The consultation organised
by the ERC was the second held
last week. The first brought
together residents of the East
Coast of Demerara.
The consultations are aimed
at sensitising citizens to the
functions of the ERC and
soliciting their suggestions for
eliminating ethnic conflict.
The meeting allowed
residents the opportunity to
discuss the issue of race
relations and to make
recommendations for bridging
the ethnic divide.
Chairman of the
Commission, Bishop Juan
Edghill in opening remarks at
Coverden, noted that the


Constitution provides for equal
opportunities and for the
elimination of ethnic
discrimination. He also pointed
to the Racial Hostility Act
which provides for persons who
excite racial discord to be
punished.
Participants came from
Agricola to Moblisa and
represented various community
based groups including religious
organizations, Neighbourhood
Democratic Councils, political
parties, youth groups, non-
governmental organizations and
the business community.
They were given the
opportunity to share their
views on what they consider to
be contributing factors to ethnic
conflict and recommendations
for the elimination of such
conflict.
The view was.expressed
that parents, politicians, the
media, religion, poverty and
history all contribute to ethnic
conflict.
One of the youngest
participants said parents
encourage their children to avoid
persons of other ethnic groups.
He said in schools,

tremendously from the ITEC
programme, and stated that
the government looks
forward to maintaining and
strengthening the strong
relationship between Guyana
and India.
-'This occasion provides us
with the opportunity to reflect
on the benefits of bilateral rela-
tionships which fosters techni-
cal capacity building and sup-
port." Mr. Hinds said. Similar
sentiments were also expressed
by Public Service Minister. Jen-
nifer Westford in her brief re-
marks.
President of the ITEC
Alumni Association in Guyana.
Mr. Irfan Ali said. "As we
reflect on 41 years of ITEC. we
would appreciate that the world
has changed significantly with a
greater degree of challenges
fostered by globalisation, fuel
crisis- global warming, economic
exploitation, cultural
subjugation, terrorism, military
aggression and raiding of human
resources."
As such, he said developing
countries like Guyana must
confront such challenges with
ideas, new ways of doing things.
creativity and togetherness.
"The men and women who in-
habit Guyana are the builders in
ensuring today's dreams become
tomorrow's reality," posited Ali,
who completed a Master's
programme in India through ITEC.
He singled out the Indian
economic revolution as a prime


example of how ideas can change
the world we live in. The Infor-
mation Technology (IT) indus-
tir. advancement in medical sci-
ences and scientific discoveries
are all features of India today
that were significantly stimu-
lated by ideas. Ali said.
He indicated that the
ITEC programmes serve as an
excellent opportunity to en-
hance skills and stimulate
ideas that would create a bet-
ter Guyana as the late Presi-
dent Dr. Cheddi Jagan puts it
in his book The New Glo-
bal Human Order: "Our
times call for clear thinking
- to diagnose the ills of our
globe, to ascertain and to for-
mulate what must be done, a
set of guiding principles and
programmes of action.
Ali said India, through its
ITEC programme, must be
complimented for nurturing the
minds of so many Guyanese.
The deputation of Indian ex-
perts in specialist field includ-
ing agriculture science, commu-
nication, mining, legal and engi-
neering disciplines are all initia-
tives that have positively in-
creased the efficiency and effec-
tiveness of the various sectors
in Guyana. he said.
He was adamant, however,
that such specialties are ever
more critical today as Guyana
explores cheaper forms of en-
ergy and the modernization of
the sugar and rice sectors.
"The field of hydro-power
bears tremendous potential for
Guyana and must be explored to


its fullest." the ITEC scholar
said, while smilutaneously issu-
ing a lobbying-call for an ITEC
specialist in the field of hydro-
power to come to Guyana and
assist in fulfilling this alternative
potential of energy in Guyana.
"To our alumni and
Guyanese generally, we implore
you not to be lured out of
Guyana after you have received
your training (since) the raiding
of human resources by those
with greater economic power is
a sad phenomenon affecting all
developing countries," Ali urged.
He also indicated that the
ITEC Almuni Association is ex-
tremely happy at the increased
level of cooperation between the
Government of Guyana and In-
dia, as we strive to solve inter-
national problems of an eco-
nomic, social, cultural or hu-
manitarian character in estab-
lishing a sturdy and lasting
foundation for social and eco-
nomic peace and stability.

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad The promising young
Caribbean musician walks out on a rehearsal for
a piano recital, saying he would prefer to try a new
way of making melodies using the underside of a
steel drum.
His European teacher is infuriated.


WALCOTT. Steel is a tribute
to Trinidad.
"It's not music and it will
never be," the teacher bellows.
"It's a garbage pan and can only
produce garbage." This is a
scene from Steel, a musical by


Nobel laureate Derek Walcott
that traces the history and
development of the steel drum
from a working-class fringe
instrument to one that has come
to represent the soul of the
Caribbean especially in the


twin-island nation of Trinidad
and Tobago.
The musical is not new a
version played at Harvard
University in the United States
in 1991 but it was performed
for a Caribbean audience for the
first time last week in a six-night
series at the historic Queens
Hall in the capital, Port of
Spain.
The opening on Tuesday
was a big event in Trinidad,
with President George Maxwell
Richards and local celebrities in
attendance.

carnival and the sweet sound of
pan," said Walcott, a native of
the island of St Lucia. "Trinidad
was the best place to host the
world premier and to display
the vast local talent."
The musical portrays the
development of steel drum
music in the 1930s and 1940s
as a metaphor for the
Caribbean's struggle to shake
itself free of European colonial
domination and assert its own
cultural identity.
The character Winston
Marshall, who abandons his
piano recital, is one of the
symbols of that struggle in post-
World War II Trinidad, where
the idea of making music from
a trash can was an affront to
upper-class society and those
who aspired to join it.
"What about London? What
about your future?" Marshall's
teacher yells at his retreating
figure. '
Beyond the music, Steel
also tackles other demons of
Caribbean life in the post-war
years violence, poverty and
prostitution in the three-hour
production.
The play runs in Trinidad
only through September 18, but
Walcott said he hopes to bring
the musical to other countries
but he has not yet finalized
plans for future performances.

The


Emergence of China


By RUEL JOHNSON

wo weeks ago from
August 28th to
September 4th a
media delegation from
Guyana, led by Information
Liaison to the President,
Robert Persaud, went on a
three-city tour of China. The
trip, sponsored by the
Chinese government was
intended to showcase both
development and
underdevelopment in China,
as well to give an alternate
view of China outside of a
Western Media perspective.
When dealing with a coun-
try as vast and complex as
China, you can only hope to
transmit your perceptions, your
observations adequately through
the lens of some central meta-
phor. For this writer, that cen-
tral metaphor comes during a
tour of one of China's most fa-
mous cultural sites.
In The Forbidden City, our
guide, "Jane", explains that
throughout China's long history,
the dragon has been symbolic of
male strength and potency. Chi-
nese emperors during several dy-
nasties made the dragon their
personal symbol, while the em-
press was represented by the
phoenix. The dragon, as repre-
sentative of imperial authority
reached its height during the
Qing Dynasty when the dragon
was featured on the imperial
flag.
Today, adds Gao Fei our
young Ministry of Foreign Af-
fairs liaison the dragon repre-
sents China's strength, the com-
bined strength of its people.
Outside of the popular dragon
motif that is infused within Chi-
nese interior decoration, other ex-.
amples abound: in Shanghai, sev-
eral channels offered in the ho-
tel room belong to the cable net-
work, Dragon TV; the carrier
that takes us from Shanghai to
Beijing is a Dragon Air aircraft.
Arguably, the Chinese
people have seen themselves
emerging from what might be
referred to as an age of Yin -
the passive, violable culture
that started with the humili-
ating post-Opium Wars con-
cessions of 'extraterritorial'
(think "Guantanamo Bay")
rights to Great Britain,
France, Russia and the United
States, and ending roughly a
century later with the expul-
sion of Japanese invaders in
1949.
Chinese memory seems al-
most as long as Chinese history.
When the group meets with Yang
Jiechi, Vice Minister of Foreign
affairs, Mr. Yang speaks of the
fact of China's emergence from
being bullied by foreign powers.
Yang who has a slight resem-
blance to American actor, James
Hong -is an elegant, intelligent,
well-spoken career diplomat
who only left his post as China's
ambassador to the United States
earlier this year. When asked by
this writer whether the bullying
he referred to was an oblique ref-


erence to the United States' de-
cades-long tacit support of Tai-
wanese independence in opposi-
tion to The People's Republic's
One-China Policy, Yang says no,
he was referring to the post-
Opium Wars era.
A hundred and fifty years
after this historical humiliation
by the West began, China is
emerging on its own terms as an
economic and political titan on
the world stage: enter the
Dragon. And the Eagle has taken
notice.
For the Western world, par-
ticular America, the Dragon's en-
try into the global sphere of
power heralds of course both a
potential and actual erosion of
hegemony. Outside of the occa-
sional Hollywood production,
the Dragon to Western eyes is a
fierce, malevolent, destructive
creature hell-bent on roasting St.
George [pun intended] to more
or less the consistency of the
meat in a McDonald's quarter-
pounder... with or without
cheese.
The Chinese of course
believe their new found iden-
tity as Dragon to be more in
keeping the traditional East-
ern view of the mythical crea-
ture. The Eastern Chinese
dragon is virtually a hero, a
sacred emblem, a fabulous
beast with the ability to as-
cend to heaven, a protector, a
bringer of rain to parched
lands, a beneficiary of the
people. One of China's main
concern in this its age of
emergence is that 80% a fig-
ure quoted by a high-ranking
Chinese information official -
of world news is dominated by
Western media entities which
often pander to the self-inter-
ests of the West.
Now there is only so much
one can gain from a brief, guided
tour of the country more so a
brief, guided official tour.
What can be said with a fair
amount of certainty however
is that what we know about
China through the lens of the
Western press isnot nearly
enough, and thus by default
grossly inaccurate.
After actually seeing China
- even if only three cities within
this sprawling mass of land the
picture of the anachronistic,
communist monolith with the
occasional dissident among the
teeming oppressed masses opt-
ing for the red (white and blue)
pill seems a concoction of Hol-
lywood, or more Cable News
Network. And according to
even some mainstream Western
news websites, even U.S.-based
Chinese immigrants are going
home to find themselves shocked
at the level of both physical and
social development that is tak-
ing place there.
Though the analogy may be
a bit oblique, for us to view and
judge China by the ever perpetu-
ated image of Tiananmen Square
would be somewhat akin to
viewing America exclusively
through the dark glass of Waco
or Ruby Ridge...or even
Guantanamio Bay or Abu Ghraib.
So far China's insistence -


no, its virtually official state
mantra that its ongoing, and
quite rapid, development is a
peaceful process is yet to be
disproved. Even U.S. Defense
Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's
recent half-cocked assertion at
regional security conference held
in Singapore that China's
"military build-up", might not be
a threat to America, but a threat
to Asia has largely been met with
ridicule. In addition to a sharp
rebuttal from Cui Tiankai,
director of the Asia department
of China's Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, even Western
commentators have pointed out
the weakness of Rumsfeld's
claims. One writer, Charles
Walker Poff, in an online
commentary "Rumnsfeld China
and Hypocrisy" questioned
Rumsfeld legitimacy to question
China's arms investments when
the United, States with no
enemies on its borders has a


military budget ten times that of
China's; Poff cited US armament
of Taiwan, its military bases in
South Korea and their nuclear
arsenals, America's presence in
recently invaded Afghanistan,
and historical tensions with
Japan..
All this is of course tak-
ing place at a time when
China's economic engine has
been going at full tilt: Chi-
nese made brassieres have
taken over the EU market; the
United States furious when a
Chinese company was able to
outbid US competitors for an
up-for-grabs oil company; and
China's textiles have
prompted the U.S to tempo-
rarily suspend imports for
fear of putting American com-
panies out of business.
With the opening of China's
markets that began under Deng
Xiaoping, the West' virtually
began to salivate at the thought


of the One Billion consumers
that its products could be
marketed to. While there have
been inroads the McDonald's
outlet that shares the same
building with the Chaoyang
Cultural Centre in Beijing attests
to this fact China has
obviously not forgotten that the
Opium Wars came about because
of the Qing government's
opposition to British Merchants
flooding of China with opium
threatening to create the 19th
century equivalent of large
junkie community.. That China
today is dictating its own terms
for access to its markets seems
to have caught the West
unawares. Like that former
attempt by the Qing government
at a self-controlled destiny the
current world powers have taken
umbrage at a supposedly
backward eastern country's
mettle; unlike then however,
China is strong enough to


withstand any attempt at
coercion by cannon:
What we here in the
'South' i.e., the developing
world dominated by the West
in perpetually every sphere of
life can start doing is to re-
think our understanding of
global destiny. To a great de-
gree, the Chinese case that we
do not know enough about
what China is like some-
thing which prompted the re-
cent media visit to. C i and
others like it is a vaid one.
It is not that we are to take.
sides: simply put, we just
have to learn to expand our
vision; to understand that we
do not live in a umipolar
world; that there are hbeafits
associated with both Ymkg aml
Yang; that the nmaagerie of
world affairs at least in oar
view should have space for
the Eagle, as well as the
Dragon.

there is no discrimination
along ethnic lines.
However, he noted that
when they are home, the same
children who practice no racial
discrimination are forced to take
on a different personality and
avoid interacting with other
races, just to please their
parents. "This should not be",
the young man said.
Other participants
expressed their views Lhat titles
such as 'coolie'. 'black man' and
'buck' should not be used to
describe persons.
The participar also
agreed that ethnic rmony

"Politicians must not divide

The issue of racial profiling
where it is assumed that one
ethnic group is better at a
particular job or that one group
has a superior skill was
discussed and condemned.
It was noted that Guyana is
a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural
society and people need to
respect and tolerate each other's
culture and beliefs.
In closing remarks,
Commissioner Mr. John Willems
urged participants to be careful of
political manipulation, particularly
around election time. He also urged
the residents to examine political
parties based on their policies and
programmes when deciding who
they will vote for, and to avoid
casting their ballot because a Party
is perceived as being in favour of
their ethnic group.

Royals take lead as


Kings post second win


By Joe Chapman

VICTORY Valley 'Royals
have taken the lead in the
GOMoseley Second Division
basketball league -champion-
ship with a ten-point 49-39
win over Blueberry Hill Blaz-
ers in the latest play, Thurs-
day night, as Kashif and
Shanghai Kings remained
unbeaten with their second
win against Scheme' Unit 52-
45 when play continued at
the Christianburg Hard
Court in Linden.
The Royals have conceded
one loss as against three wins
for seven points with Wismar
Pistons holding second position
in the nine-team competition,
after playing three games with
three victories for six points.


The Royals took the lead in
the league competition winning
behind R. Beckles who top-
scored with 16 game-high points
- Mark.Tyrell nine and D.
Cooper eight contributing to the
winning performance.
S. Obermuller was the lead-
ing scorer for Blueberry Hill
Blazers with nine points.
The Kings overcame a
tough battle against Scheme
Unit and led at halftime 26-25.
They turned on the screws in
the second half and through su-
perb play from forward
Desmond Chin, who posted 14
game-high points, Hugh Wade's
11 and Thornton Wilson with
10, kept their unblemished
record in tact.,
The best players for
Scheme Unit were Byron


Pearson and Alwyn Rodney
with nine points each.
Earlier, play in the com-
petition which has been badly
hit by inclement weather saw
Wismar Pistons picking up
their third in as many
matches to be second in the
points standing with six, post-
ing a 68-32-point hammering
of Blueberry Iill Blazers.
Forward Allister Bynoe
was in good form scoring 13
points as support came from
Shane Lewis with seven and
Lennox Lewis who added six for
the winners. Melroy Ross had
10 points for the losing Blazers
side.


Amelia's Ward Jets, led by
guard Delbert Caesar with a
game-high 25 points, recorded a
fine win when they defeated
Half Mile Bulls 53-50 points.
The Bulls, playing their sec-
ond game, again failed to hold
their nerves in the final stretch
and came up losers in as many
matches.
While forward Oscar
Adams' six points was the
lone support for the Jets, the
Bulls' scoring hinged on
Kurleigh Austin with 16
points, Dennis Anderson 12
and Damian Allen with nine.
Pistons scored their first
win by inflicting a 66-52 points
win against Karabow with
Lennox Lewis netting 19 points,
Kenneth Whyte 14 and Allister
Bynoe adding eight.
Kenton Bowen was the
best shoot for the Karabow side
with 23 game-high points. Vic-

SUNDAY CHRONICLE September 18, 2005


England consider


spinners for


Pakistan tour


By Oliver Brett
ENGLAND'S selectors will
have to find at least one ex-
tra spinner as they ponder
their squads for the Test and
one-day series in Pakistan
this winter.
With dry, dusty surfaces
likely to be prepared, Ashley
Giles will need back-up but as
usual there are few contend-
ers really pressing their case.
Gareth Batty is the regular
understudy, and will probably
be named in the one-day squad.
But for the Tests, the selec-
tors may go somewhere else, be-
cause Batty is rarely a match-
winner with the ball for his
county Worcestershire.
Shaun Udal has had prob-
ably his best season ever at
Hampshire, with 35 wickets
costing just 18.14 apiece.
The only thing against
picking him is his age. The
selectors would be under-
~~-


ENGLAND need to find
back-up for Giles in the
Subcontinent.
standably reluctant to pick a
36-year-old.
But then again a certain per-
son the same age has more than
600 Test wickets to his name -
and is still out-bowling his
peers.
Udal is also a decent bats-
man, on a par with Giles, so
would be able to bat above the
likes of Steve Harmison and
Matthew Hoggard.
Jason Brown is a possible
selection. He has a decent bag
of 44 wickets this season in the
County Championship, though
there is one. rider when consid-
ering him.
More than half those wick-
ets will have come at Wantage
Road, however, which can oc-
casionally provide excellent con-
ditions for spinners.
But, on the other hand, if
you want to find a wicket to
resemble Lahore in Novem-
ber, then Wantage Road in


August is pretty close to the
mark.
Lancashire's Gary Keedy,
the most consistent slow bowler
in the County Championship
for the past three seasons, has
been injured since the end of
July.
His coach Mike Watkinson
says the player will be fit "in a
couple of weeks" so after the
season finishes.
"He had a ball driven back
at him in the Twenty20 Cup fi-
nal. He damaged a ligament in
his hand and it hasn't really
settled down since." says
Watkinson-
"It means he's not had the
opportunity to put in some big
performances together at the
back end of the season.
"But he took 72 wickets
last year and 60 the season be-
fore.
"If you're looking for some-
one to bat at seven and field at
first slip then he's not the man.
"But if you're looking for
someone to be a specialist spin
bowler then he's the guy for it."
Other areas of selection are
less complicated.
Ian Bell, despite his poor
run of form against Australia,
will be retained and Robert Key
is likely to be picked as the
back-up batsman.
That leaves Middlesex pair
Ed Joyce and Owais Shah
scrambling for spots in the one-
day squad at best-
The selection of James
Anderson in mthe squad for The
Oval provides a strong clue that
he is in line for more Test ac-
tion, leaving Jon Lewis primed
for the one-day series instead.
Occasionally on tours of
this nature, teams do not pick a
reserve wicketkeeper-
But Geraint Jones has been
in shaky form with the gloves
so Chris Read will be more than
just a passenger.
Meanwhile, Paul
Collingwood, who will
provide back-up to Andrew
Flintoff in the Test picture,
remains a vital part of the
one-day squad. (BBC Sport)
Possible Test squad:
Trescothick, Strauss, Vaughan,
Bell, Key, Pietersen, Flintoff,
Collingwood. G Jones, Read,
Giles, Hoggard, Harmison, S
Jones, Anderson, Udal.
Possible one-day squad:
Trescothick- Strauss, \ ai.i ; bn.
Shah, Solanki, Pietersen,
Flintoff. Coflingwood, G Jones,
Read. Giles, Harmison. S Jones,
G ough, Lew is. F ti

Demerara and Berbice


clash today at Blairmont


By Vemen Walter
THRILLING action is ex-
pected when Demerara dash
with defending champions
Berbice in the opening match
of the 2005 El Dorado Senior
Inter-County 50 Overs
cricket tournament today at
the Blairmont Community
Centre ground on the West
Bank of Berbice.
Wih the cream of Guyana's
cricketers on show, cricket fans
could very well be in for a treat
as the arch rivals battle to take
an early lead in the tournament
that also involves underdogs
Essequibo.
The presence of West
Indies players Shivnarine
Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh


NARSINGH DEONARINE
Sarwan, together with Narsingh
Deonarine, will certainly draw a
huge crowd, but the introduction
of the replacement player and
the twenty-over fielding restric-
tion in three blocks of ten and
two fives a new develop-
ment into limited overs cricket
being implemented for the first
time at the local level makes
the match more interesting.
According to Carl Moore,
chairman of the Guyana Cricket
Board Competitions Commit-
tee, the replacement player and
the twenty overs fielding re-
striction have been included in
the playing conditions for the
upcnOTrriig 2005 West Indies Re-
gional One-Day tournament and
as such the Guyana Cricket


Board (GCB) has decided to in-
troduce same in this tournament
so that the Guyanese cricketers
that would be selected to rep-
resent the country will become
acquainted.
Demerara, being led by
West Indies skipper
Chanderpaul, are favoured to
come out victorious but will
have their work cut out
against a confident. and
youthful Berbice line-up,
who are eager for success un-
der the captaincy of Test bats-
man Deonarine for the first
time.
When the two.teams would
have last met in last year's El
Dorado final at Albion, Berbice
had a comfortable six-wicket
victory on the back of a four-
wicket haul from off-spinner
Imran Jaferally and half-centu-
ries from Deonarine and then
captain Damodar Daesrath after
Demerara had earlier gotten the
better of them in the prelimi-
nary exchange at Wales.
However, on both occa-
sions then, Demerara were with-
out the services of Chanderpaul
and Sarwan while Berbice had at
their disposal, the likes of the
Mahendra Nagamootoo
(dropped for the final), his
brother Vishal and economical
-left-arm spinner Hemnarain
Harrinarain, all of whom are out
of the team this time around.
Vishal Nagamootoo and
Harrinarain are presently in
the United States while it is
reported that Mahendra
Nagamootoo is in the country
but was overlooked by the
Berbice selectors.
Chanderpaul and Sarwan
with 178 and 87 ODI under
their belt respectively, spearhead
a powerful Demerara batting
line-up, that also includes West
Indies opener Ryan Ramdass,
fellow opener Krishna Arjune
and middle order batsmen
Lennox Cush and Travis
Dowlin.
Wicketkeeper Derwin
wChristiah -who represented
Guyana in last year's Regional


STEVEN JACOBS
One-Day Tournament, former
West Indies player Neil
McGarrell and all-rounder
Zaheer Mohamed can also pose
problems for the Berbice
bowlers.
Talented sixteen-year-old
Steven Jacobs who scored a
century in the last Demerara
trials is also another all-
round option for Demerara
should he be chosen ahead of
his fellow Malteenoes club
mate and all-rounder Orin
Forde in the first twelve.
Like their batting,
Demerara's bowling is just as
strong. Reon King and Reon
Griffith will deliver the quicker
stuff before the left-arm spin of
McGarrell and off-spinners
Mohamed, Cush and Dowlin are
called upon. .
Berbice, on the other hand,
with three titles in the last four
years,. will be depending heavily
on Deonarine and Sewnarine
Chattergoon to lead from the
front with the bat. Both left-
handers have been in good form
of late especially Chattergoon,
the West Indies A Team opener,
Fresh from a superb century in'
the recent national Baron Foods
semi-final.
.Apart from the, two,
Royston Crandon, likely to
partner Chattergoon at the top
of the order as he did last year
when he scored two half-centu-
ries; Assad Fudadin, Daesrath,

Gajanand Singh, and the experi-
enced Andre Pervival can also
get big scores.
National fast bowler Esaun
Crandon and medium pacer
Daesrath will be looking to
make early inroads with the new
ball although the spinners are
expected to do the bulk of the
bowling on a Blairmont track
that is normally slow.
Jaferally and former
Guyana Under-19 leg-spinner
Davendra Bishoo are the two
frontline spinners included in
the Berbice team but the off-
spin of Deonarine, Percival,
Royston Crandon and :all-
rounder Devon Clements can
also cause concerns for the
Demerara batsmen.
Chattergoon, underrated
leg-spinner, is also an option for
Deonarine.
Play starts at 09:30 h with
the umpires being Clement

ANOTHER explosive performance by national
striker Anthony 'Awo' Abrams as he delivered
his second hat-trick in consecutive games of
the GFL's Premier League piloted Fruta Conquerors
to a resounding 5-1 victory over Alpha United when
the two sides met on Friday at the GFC ground.
It was Conquerors in another no-nonsense mood. as they erased a
one goal deficit, on their way to their fifth win of the competition. On
a night described by some fans as "Super Friday Football the goal-
hungry Awo found the back of the nets in the 64th, 68th and 90th rmn-

Alpha took the lead in the 26th minute through Sherwin

which the Alpha defence and goalkeeper Dexter Rutherford had

W hen the
'perfect'
relationship
publicly implodes after
your loving husband
admits he is in fact gay,
bouncing back can
seem like a lifetime
away. Are there
shortcuts to facing the
world again?
It is hard not to feel for
what's happening to Terry
McMillan. With millions in the
bank, a celebrated reputation as
an author and public speaker;'
-McMillan has had to face what
those of us without the cushion
of celebrity have had to come to
terms with since our
Relationships became fodder for
alto pour over and dissect the
minute details of our personal
lives --there was a new joke in
* town and guess what, the punch
line is your relationship..
Suddenly, the perfect man
you showed off to your friends
and family has exhibited his
negative traits, or confessed.to
a secret side. For many of us,
we have had to come to terms
with Prince Charming, who is
exposed as a serial philanderer,
or Mr Right, who practically
oozed -charisma, only. to
discover he was hitting on your
sisters and had cheated on you
with half of his work staff.
Think the 'Sienna and Jude'
show, and we can rest assured
thai whatever shade these 'Mr
Perfects' come in, there always
seems to be a downside.
For McMillan, her
situation represents the very
worst-case scenario of a
relationship coming apart at
the seams. Al the elements
of a classic Terry McMillan
-book are present and
accounted for closeted
.secrets, 4 e twist in the tale,
and Intrigue. by the bucket-
-loads.' When the world:
diseeweid 'flew SeUfa Got Her
Grd'440t, weall w twaedto..


believe in a happy ending.
Jonanthan Plummer, the
sexy young hospitality
worker, 23 years McMillan's
junior (played by Taye Diggs
in the motion picture version
of the book) revealed to his
wife of six years that he was
gay in December of last year.
Thirty-year-old Plummer
found himself homeless
shortly after, when McMillan
kicked him out of their $4
million luxury home.
According to court papers
filed in what is gearing up to
be an acrimonious divorce,
McMillian claims "it was
devastating to discover that a
relationship I had publicized
to the world as life-affirming
* and built on mutual love was
actually based on deceit. I was
humiliated."
-As the former poster couple
of the May-December romance
battle it out in the American
courts, McMillan's friends, and
even those who never met the
pair, have all weighed in with
their own brand of 'help and
advice'.
Taking too much of this
on board is not always
conducive to helping the
healing process says Relate
.counselor Paul Hall.
"Only the two people
involved in the
relationship ever really
know what happened, With
the best will in the world,
people will automatically
edit their accounts of what
took place.. It is your
problem, and the best
solution to facing up to
what has happened will,
'ultimately come from you."
Something that McMillan
might well take on board is ...
playing the 'blame game',
.aFcording to Hall. With
acustions of theft and financial
irmpr6priety already doing the
.mou& .this advice may have
eq. ,too late. "You have to be


honest, and you have to be real.
People are going to know if you,
are faking it. If you are angry
and hurt, then saying it is
probably -better. Probably the
worst-case scenario is painting
them as the villain. The thing to

































you are.'"
One woman who can
understand McMillan's
emotional stame it Brenda Stone
Browder w,. as well as being
a wrilerqagging ator ffs the
former wigardless of fahoedw Yohurtk
Times Bedtselling author, JL ,P


King, who told the world of his
secret life as a gay man -whilst

married to Brenda and living
with their ,two children. His
book-, On the Down' Low,
started a media frenzy, and


fallen apart, and was
temporarily devastated and
constantly wondered what
people thought of her and her
situation.
Whilst Brenda's story is not
typical of the forms of public
humiliations most of us will
endure, the rules for bouncing
back will be the same.

1. Recognise it is
not your fault.
2. His issues are
not a reflection of you;
stop playing the victim.
3. You can forgive
and even have a different
kindof relationship with
the person who you felt
betrayed you.
4. There is someone
out there for you. You
will love again.

that is what you choose. It
will also alienate some of

secret and their most
personal moment told to you
might not be safe."
.There is also some advice
for those. of us. who have
experienced humiliation, but
think there is something of a
relationship that can be salvaged.
"If you can own your feelings
and say 'I was hurt, a mistake
was made and I really am not
sure what I'm going to do, but
I'm- gonna take things slowly,
people will understand. It is
about approaching the subject
with humility. There are no dead
certs:..next time I'm definitely
going to...' you will only end up
setting yourself up to fail. Ask
for your friends' support and
acknowledge what your actions
might be saying. For example
starting a conversation with 'I
know I may be being.a fool but
I want to make another go of
things for X and Y reasons. I
really need your support and
want to know you will be there
however things turns out.' Be
humble in your approach,
people will appreciate that.

WHEN A nation
recognizes
the role of the
writer and, in due
course, confers honour
on any_ such
enlightened mortal, it
augurs well for the
wellbeing and
betterment of that
country. The writer not
only mirrors the
society, but acts as the
conscience of the
community and a
"barometer of the
vitality of the spirit of
the nation."*
Henry Walter Josiah, born
January 26, 1932, was one such
champion of this young nation,
going to the heart of the matter,
campaigning in the cause of
literacy and children literature.
Little wonder then that the
Henry Josiah Writing Short
Story Competition for Children
was launched; it had to be born
in order to bring back Guyana;
analyses were showing that
reading for pleasure was down
and English result poor.
In 2002, the Henry Josiah
Writing Short Story
Competition for Children
started when another
'extraordinary Guyanese,
"philanthropist Dr Thisi Dyal
Singh, who resuscitated the
Guyana Christmas Annual
(now The Guyana Annual) in
1998, sought to revitalize the
literary legacy of Guyana by"
targeting and involving
children of a tender age. Alan
Fenty, in introducing the
competition said: "The idea is
ito discover and encourage
those who have a knack, a
skill for. creating
entertaining, educational and
:,credible local stories for the
* nation's children."
Journalist, magazine
publisher, radio commentator,
children's book editor/producer,
.Josiah was an inveterate word-
smith, starting his writing career
at high school. This creative
impulse was given momentum
when his first published story
in the Caribia regional magazine
won a readers' popularity poll
against the ilk of Edgar
Mittleholzer, an already
published novelist.
Josiah's stories also found
their way into the Guyana
Times, and in a significant
anthology, The Lure of the
Mermaid and other Stories,
edited by Janet Jagan. His
poetry won prizes in the Kaie
journal, and found its way into
important anthologies like
Independence Ten, Guyanese
Writing 1966 1976 edited by
Seymour, and Voices of Guyana
edited'by" ynofimarolotm .
Josiah graduated from the


writers to-share his writings and,
to graciously deal with"
cnaci*sm.
97i ,Alan Fen.ty recall's tha'i Jj
Josiah was never a person given,


London Polytechnic School of
Modem Languages, and studied
journalism in Britain on a
colonial scholarship, making him
the first qualified Guyanese
journalist.
In 1953, .he became the
secretary of the British Guiana
Union of Journalists, serving
alongside William Carto, Carl
Blackman and R B Harewood,
replacing the ineffective British


Guiana Press Association. On
several occasions, he worked at
the Government Information
Services (GIS), and held the
post of Communications
Advisor in the Office of the
Prime Minister; both positions
placing him in the midst of
anything happening anywhere,
so he was well informed. And,
he didn't keep it all to himself.
For a while, he lectured at the

University of Guyana in Public,
Communications and he also
found the time and occasion to
tutor emerging broadcasters 'for
free.
Josiah's worth on the local
journalism scene was :soon
recognized as he was in. ited to:
edit regional newspapers and
magazines: Locally, he edited--
the New Nation, the official
organ of the then People's
National Congress (PNC), and
worked at the Argosy. Mirror,
Graphic and Chronicle
newspapers.
Apart from his official
writings, Josiah was deeply
involved in drama as
playwright/actor, and as
writer/producer for radio. He
was deeply concerned about
the state of local writing;
how a publishing house was
needed to take this product to
another level which idea he
shared with Sheik Sadeek,
Jocelyn Hubbard and
Michael Gilkes in 1970, an
idea that is still being
ventilated even to today.
Josiah was outspoken yet
very humble, always with a
word of advice to the young. At
meetings of the Guyana Writers
Group, he was one of few


to too much idle talk. and during
drinking sessions,. would
frequently .'steer the
conversation into the critique of
films, stage shows and local
literature.
In 1994, his first and only-.
collection of stories, 'Tales of
Makonaima 's Childrei', "was
published by :R'oraima-
Publishers, a local company. A.
second edition, 2001. came out.
after his death. .
Somewhere is a short
novel. written by Josiah on
the slave hero, Damon,
waiting to be published. He
also attempted an epic novel,
retracing the aboriginal
peoples' journey across-the
Bering Straits down into the
Americas, but would
eventually use stories from
that unfinished volume that
went on to win many


Competitions. Such was his
versatility.
In 1966, 'Makonaima and
"Pia'. won .a children's story
contest Reprintedinillustrated
book form, that story earned a
'Book of.the Day' award at the
1967 'Man and His World'
international exposition in
-Montreal, Canada, and was
-.included in a UNESCO
travelling book exhibition titled:
'Best of the Best'.
His best reward, however,
was seeing his work used as
supplementary reading material
in. the .primary schools in the
.Kaiid of his birth.
Henry Josiah died
December 23,1997, exhorting
us "to rediscover ourselves; to
sometimes dig up the'ground
our forebears have covered
and take a long and loving
look at our roots."

night. If she weren't in my
house it wouldn't matter, but I
don't understand how she could
be happy making $100 a week.
My wife acts like she can't live
without her mother and doesn't
mind that we take care of her.
All I want her to do is to
get out into the world; to better
herself; and maybe after she gets
on her feet, help us out a little.
All she does is watch the kids,
and by that I mean they do
anything they want except hurt
themselves. When we get home
from work, she has plenty of
time to go to bingo or visit her
friends. If she has time to do all
that, why doesn't she have time
to help herself?
STAN
Stan, your arguments are
contradicting. In the opening of
your letter, you are concerned
your mother-in-law is a recluse
and possibly depressed. Then
you are angry at supporting her.-
Finally, you hope she can get
out in the world and help you
out. You go on to menttion she
has no life, but complain she
has time for bingo and fiends.
What's the essence of
what's going on? Having your
mother-in-law live with you is
like owning a dog. She plays
with the kids, she's a drain on
your income, and your wife is


U
~a *~ ~ /1


really attached to her. But you
don't especially like dogs. If she
was a working breed, it would
be an their iltnier.
Do ',ou Ihink you can teach
this old dog nev tricks? Not
hkely. You can 't change a lapdog
into a working breed, and you
can't turn your mother-in-law,
at her age, into what you wish
her to be. She could get a job and
help you out. But she won't.
Stop thinking that way. She's
not her son-in-law's best friend.
This issue could drive a
wedge between you and your


wife, but is it worth it? The
only real power you have is the
power to frame what you see.
You won't get positive at-
tention from your wife by fo-
cusing on her mother. But if you
focus on your wife and children,
can you see the benefits you
will reap? Your mother-in-law is
taking your focus from where it
should be. If you can't stop fo-
cusing on her, you will be the
one in the doghouse.

/-\ --V The Dentist Advises


I may also increase muscular neck, shoulder and back. The
tension. mouth may not open fully


A WOMAN tele
phoned me
wanting to
know if I could do
anything about her
husband, who wakes up
the household
frequently at night with
the sound of his teeth
grinding. She wanted to
know about this
phenomenon. I
promised her to deal
with the topic.
The grinding or clenching of
the teeth, which is called
bruxism, usually occurs
unconsciously and
spontaneously and may be
repetitive at varying levels. It
is practised almost universally,
usually'during sleep.
Bruxism has been shown
to be linked to psychological
stress 1 as a necessary
component. While mental
tension provides the spark
for the initiation of this
habit, and the fuel for its
continuation, the original
source of this energy comes
from the genetically
determined drives and needs
of the individual. Any
unsatisfied need or


interference with one's
satisfaction, which may be
experienced as frustration,


anger, anxiety, or fear, may
result in tension and the
possibility of teeth grinding.
Other causes, such as
epilepsy and high fillings,
have been implicated, but
their relation to psychological
tension should be obvious.
While mental stress may
manifest itself anywhere in the
body, in this case, the structures
in and around the mouth appear
to be the focus of this tension.
The reasons why the mouth is
selected for this habit can best
be appreciated if one reflects on
the infant's activities.


Since the mouth is the
means of receiving food and
the earliest method of


exploring the environment, it
is intimately tied to emotions
such as satisfaction,
frustration, anxiety and
anger. These early
associations are significant
and seem to last a lifetime,
and are the reason why the
mature individual reverts to
the oral cavity during periods
of stress by smoking, eating,
chewing gum and grinding
the teeth.
For bruxism to occur, it is
necessary for the chewing
muscles to receive psychological
tension for discharge. The first

reaction to anxiety is increased
tonicity (contraction) in
preparation for either fight of


flight. Other stress-inducers
such as pain, the physical
exertion of lifting heavy objects,
or even straining on defecation,


(the act of grinding one's teeth)


The net effect of this
uptightness and movement is a
vicious circle. Suppressing our
emotions during the day for
socio-cultural reasons may
cause clenching or gritting of the
teeth, which, in turn, will
increase the tension. To the
extent that grinding movements
during sleep reduces the tension,
the habit may be helpful.
Unfortunately, this type of
discharge is highly
inefficient and the tension
may accumulate. Bruxism
may be practised by virtually
anyone, those with or without
natural teeth. What are the
effects of teeth grinding?
Many painful symptoms
of the joints of the lower jaw
are really the consequence of
the muscle spasms obtained
during bruxism. The areas in
front of the ears become
painful and tender to the
touch. In addition to
localised discomfort, pain
may be referred to

due to shorteninUg ot the
muscles, because persistent
contraction of a fatigued
muscle may lead to tissue
breakdown and, with it, an
inflammatory response.
Recent studies have
confirmed that grooves found
on the area of the teeth next
to the gum line are caused
mainly by the unconscious
clenching of the teeth
during episodes of anxiety
and social stress. It was
first believed that these
grooves on the neck of the
teeth were caused by bad
technique in brushing.
Blunting and wearing down
of the enamel and dentine
apart from periodontal
abcesses, have all been
implicated in this para-
functional habit. Worst still,
the teeth may become shaky
and require extraction.
Sometimes the teeth wear
down to as much as half its
length. In these cases,
correction is extensive.

with your study partners. Do not hide the
things you do not really understand from
knowledgeable persons; they can help you if
you ask them to do so. Practise good study
habits. Keep in focus! Enjoy this issue. Love

See table below
IN THIS WEEK
The Passage Begins
It was Ti-cush who first suggested we go and see
what the group of kids over by the swings were up
to. Finally it looked like something was happen-
ing, so we walked over and I pushed my way to
the centre. I saw a girl about my age fourteen
years, ten days and some fifteen hours. She was
standing at the centre of the group, and although
she is now my best, my ab-so-lute friend, I have
to say that she did look a bit strange that day. She
was wearing these ribbons if there is anything
you can wear to show how much you lack style
and class it's ribbons big, blue, satin ribbons tied
in bows on the ends of her braids.
Questions
1. What is the meaning of the term "were up to" in
the first sentence?
2. Why do you think that the speaker's age is
stated in years, days and hours?
3. Do you think that the speaker like the girl with
blue satin ribbons? Tell why from the passage.
The Passage Continues
Two thick braids. I know it's not cool to want
braids that are not fancy, with beads and all that,
but right then and there I wished I had braids like
that, real thick and long; but she was crying. It
wasn't loud, her crying, but you could see that she
was, and somehow it was worse because she
wasn't making any noise. My lump of a sister, I
thought, should take lessons from her. When she
cried, I swear you could hear her all the way to Af-
rica or China. That wasn't a nice thought, and I
wasn't proud of it sort of gross really, but if you
could imagine someone crying, yet looking proud
so that you didn't feel sorry for her, that was how
she looked. She held her head up, and pushed her
chin out, as if she was trying to stop the tears run-
ning down her face.
Questions
1. How exactly was the girl in the centre of the
group crying? Have you ever cried like that? Why?
2. What is meant by the words, "my lump of a sis-
ter"?
3. Why would the speaker say that anyone could
have heard the cry even in Africa or China? Where
do you think this episode is taking place?
4. What shows that the speaker has some sort
of good upbringing?


the best time to ask her what it meant and where
it came from. Before I could say anything else she
continued, sobbing between the words: 'and me
a hate it here. Me wish me was back home
with Gran it so cold.

Questions
1. What is meant by the term, "uncool"?
2. Why was Zulma pressing her fist against her big
coat? Why was she wearing the coat anyway?
3. What in this passage makes you see again that
the speaker is tactful?
4. Can you guess from Zulma's speech where (in
general) her Gran lives?

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to our Mathematics columns. Always
try to use in your everyday life whatever you
have learnt or else you will quickly lose your
capacity to remember it. Love you.

IN LAST WEEK
Reminder: You can use a decimal to name a frac-
tion.
- If you divide a plot of land into ten equal parts, one
of those parts is called one tenth. The whole plot is
equal to ten tenths.
Three of ten tenths can be written as 0.3.
3.7 = 3 and 7 tenths
5.2 = 5 and 2 tenths
7.6 = 7 and 6 tenths

Written as a decimal:
1.6/10 =0.6
2.4/10 = 0.4
3.8/10 =0.8
4. 2 3/10= 2.3
5. 57/10=5.7; .
6.236/10=2316 '.
7. 5 tenths = 05
8. 2and 6 tenths= 2.6
9. 16 and 4 tenths = 16.4
10. 4 and 7 tenths = 4.7 '
11. five tenths = 0.5
12.1 tenth = 0.1

Hundredths
Reminder: use a decimal when a Whole is divided
into hundredths.
When a whole is divided into one hundred equal
parts, one part is called one hundredths and the
whole is called 100 hundredths.
A decimal written as 0.05, should be read off as five
hundredths.
1.17 should be read off as one and seventeen hun-
dredths.


Completed sets:
1. 2.65 = 2 and 65.hundredths
2. 11.02 = 11 and 2 hundredth

Written as a decimal:


3. 58/100 = 0.58
4. 63/100 = 0.63
5.12/100 = 0.12


The value of the boldface digits:
1. 7.75 = 5 hundredths; 0.05
2. 89.7 = 7 tenths; 0.7
3. 0.9147 = 4 thousandths = 0.004
4. 18.9754 = 4 ten thousandths = 0.0004
The word name:
5. 069.004 = 69 and 4 thousandths
6. 24.46 = 24 and 46 hundredths
7. 0.0008 = 8 ten thousandths

The decimal as a fraction or mixed number:

Decimal Fraction Mixed Number
1.0.9 9/10 ?
2.7.5 ? 7 5/10 = 7 Y
3. 0.64 64/100 ?

6. 0.764 764/1000 ?
7.71.907 ? 71907/1000
8. 0.0009 9/10000 ?


Conversion of Decimals to Fractions to lowest Terms

Reminder: A decimal can always be converted to
a fraction.

Example 1

0,32 = 32/100= 8/25 (reduced to its lowest terms)

Note: When you are comparing decimals and frac-
tions, it is best to convert the fraction into a deci-
mal, than to convert the decimal into the fraction.

You must deal only with the decimal part. In other
words, let the whole number alone. 5.02 = 52/100
=51/50
Fractions in their lowest terms:.


1.0.12 = 12/100 = 3/25

Keeping in Touch
Mandy is going to make a counter top by covering a
good-sized piece of wood with small tiles. Each
tile is square centimeter. How many tiles does
she need?

We can find the area of a rectangle by multiplying.

Area = length X width (breadth)
Area = 25 cm X 12 cm
= 300 square centimeters
Mandy needs (300 divided by 4) tiles, where each
tile measures 4 square centimeters.

Measure a counter top in your kitchen or some other
rectangle and find the number of tiles needed to
cover it. Each tile measures 2.5 cm2.

relevant beyond Brazil
because it is based on a
much-needed joyful
reverence for all things
natural, organic, light-
hearted, and
exuberantly optimistic.
This CD's anthology of
such music is a beautiful
collector's item which features
14 superb examples of jazz vo-
cals/instrumentals by Brazilian
and international jazz artistes
who appreciate and contribute
to this original South American
sound.
What makes Brazilian jazz
composers and musicians


unique or original, is their abil-
ity to make musical art that
represents their nation as a co-
hesive whole, comprised of di-
verse native indigenous, Euro-
pean and African musical quali-
ties long embedded in this
continent's history.
To use such rooted qualities
in a progressive manner, beyond
Folk Music traditions, is what
brought recognition to Brazilian
jazz artistes and Brazil as an au-
thentic national culture. For ek-
ample, let us consider the flute,
all sorts of them, made of bone,
bamboo, clay, wood, metal. The
flute is the origin or basis of all
original South American music,
first created by native tribes in
every South American country
and region. With the Portuguese
and Spanish came the guitar,
other string instruments, the pi-
ano, trumpet, saxophone, etc.,
With the Africans came the abil-
ity to construct all sorts of
drums, congas, and percussion
objects. The eventual combina-
tion of all these musical objects,

By Chamanlall Naipaul

RARELY DO
aircraft pilots
and/or their
passengers survive
serious crashes.
But. 11 years ago, on this
-very day, one of Guyana's fin-
est and most experienced avia-
tors miraculously escaped the
clutches of death, virtually un-
scathed by aircraft accident stan-
dards, after enduring a 15-hour
ordeal all alone and in a semi-
conscious state in one of


consecutive days. and being dis-
creet about it, to boot, since the
workers were very agitated. Dur-
ing all that time, he said, he had
hardly slept and had eaten very
little food.
On the day in question, he'd
left Ogle at around 6:30am and
was returning late into the night,
when all of a sudden, he began
to feel unwell.
"I suddenly began loosing
consciousness," he said, "and in
that semi-conscious state, I
realized that I could not control
the aircraft anymore and that I
was going to crash. I told.my-


Second World War. which was to
tilt the plane in such a way as it
landed on the side furthest from
the pilot; this being the right
side; in the event of a crash.
He was attempting to do
just this, he said, when "-' heard
the loudest and most violent
sound in my life." The sound he
heard was the descending aircraft
coming into contact with the

Guyana's densest jungles.
Captain Gerry Gouveia was
that fortunate man to have lived
to tell the tale after his plane
came down over Demerara, a few
miles away from the Amerindian
settlement, Santa Mission, en
route to the Ogle airstrip from
the Omai Gold Mines, some 160
km from the city on the upper
-Essequibo River.
Recalling the incident,
Gouveia said:
"There had to be some di-
vine intervention which saved
my life. I had given up and felt
that I was going to die, so I took
out my micro-recorder, which I
always have with me when fly-
ing. and recorded a message to
my wife and family."
How did this drama unfold?
As Gouveia recalls, there
was a strike on at the mine,
whereby the workers were pro-
testing the shortage of food. As
such, he was tasked with airlift-
ing some in to the mine, shuttling
between OgJe and Omai forgive


self I was going to die."
He gave as the reason for his
suddenly fallingill an attack of
stomach cramps which were
caused by not eating regularly or
adequately, and the fatigue of
flying over such an extended pe-
riod without taking a rest.
He recalled that on the day
of the crash, he had eaten rather
heavily, which may have been
responsible for his stomach act-
ing up the way it did, as it may
have been having problems ad-
justing from too little or no food
at all, to too much.
Dismissing as fallacy an
old saying many believe is
true, he said: "People say that
when you are about to die, you
see before you all that hap-
pened in your life. That is a
lie. What came to me was my
training as a pilot"
He remembered an RAF
(Royal Air Force) pilot telling
him during one of his many train-
ing stints in Northern Ireland
about a technique he and his col-
leagues had developed during th


CAPTAIN GEFRRYGOUVEA
trees in the dense jungle.
Surprisingly, the plane did
not go up in flames as antici-
pated, and neither did his side
of the cockpit sustain much
damage even lbouchr the rest of
the plane was a wreck.
As he passed his hand
across his right cheek, however.
he felt a wetness, which he, in
his dazed state, mistakenly as-
sumed was his brain leaking out
of his cranium. "So I lited my
head to the left to prevent it
from coming out." He would later
learn that the wetmess he'd felt
was not his brain but the blood
from his injuries.
Finding his emergency kit
somehow, he managed to send
off an emergency signal (ELT),
. with which all aircraft are
;"- i in case of an emer-


agency so as to help would-be
rescuers locate them.
Mindful. too, that the plane
could go up in flames at any
minute, he also disconnected its

battery and took whatever other.
precautionary measures he could
manage. Having done all this, he
settled down for the night, fore-
going all thoughts of lighting a
fire to help keep away the vam-
pire bats and various bugs he
hiad to contend with and at the
same time attract the attention of
aircraft passing overhead, lest
the plane caught afire.
He would later learn that an
American had picked up his
emergency signal, but because
their tracking was 12 miles off
target the rescuer party which
had been out searching for him
could not locate him.
As such, he had had to
spend the nighi in the jungle, un-
til help came the next morning
when his location was ascer-
tained and he was rescued with
the aid of the residents from
nearby Santa Mission.
Throughout the ordeal, he
said, the one thing that kept him
going was his undying faith in
his wife Debbie, also a pilot,
whom he felt would be able to
handle the situation because she
always kept her cool in times of
stress and tension.
And so today Captain
Gonveia is still here with us
to relive the memory of an in-
credible brash with death.


:- F YORK: THE DE-
LICIOUSLY tantalizing
smell of duck curry
West Indian style filled
the warm air causing
mouths to water in the
quiet but beautiful
Rosedale Park in
Queens.
As competitors and their
supporters flocked the various
tents to prepare their curries, the
quiet of the park was trans-
formed into a lively concert-hall
setting, with the pulsating
rhythms of contemporary Indian
music blaring out from huge
speakers.
The event was the famous
Duck Curry Competition held
during the Labour Day
weekend for Guyanese and
others of West Indian extract
based here in New York to
enjoy a fun outing .cooking
duck, listening to music,
dancing, drinking, hanging out
with family and friends and,
of course, eating the spicy
fare prepared by the 39
participants.
Everything was in favour of
the contest, the first of its kind
to be held in 'The Big Apple'.
The weather was fabulous, the
participants were skilled cooks,
the organizers did a fantastic job
getting the word out, and the
people turned out in the hun-
dreds. Best of all, admission was
free.
The competition kicked off
around 1:30 pm. and partici-
pants were given two hours in
which to finish their curries. De-
spite the excitement and nervous
tension that were all part of the
competitive spirit, participants
had to make sure the nicely
chopped chunks of meat were
simmering in the rich aromatic
-West Indian-style massala gravy
and tender, as in easy on the
teeth.

clean up after, the competition.
Persaud, better known as
'King' wherever he goes, said
that after participating in a simi-
lar event in Trinidad and To-
bago, where the idea originated,
he was inspired to introduce it
to Guyana where he has been
organising Duck Curry competi-
tions. for the past three years.
The grand finale, which is held
in the capital, Georgetown, is
usually preceded by preliminary
competitions all across the coun-
try.
Seeing that New York is
one of his key overseas mar-
kets, he thought that holding
such an event was a good way
of giving back something to
the community for their un-

elected from a wide cross-section
of professionals in the Queens
community.
"The panel of judges had dif-
ferent opinions; they were
young and old, males and fe-
males" and their decision was fi-
nal. Persaud noted, adding: "The
competition was very competi-
tive."'
Shawn Balgobin, a
Trinidadian, copped the first
prize of US$1,000, while
Guyanese-born Dhanpaul
Singh carted off the second


prize of US$500. Third place
prize of US$250 went to Ri-
chard Balgobin; while
Kaieteur Restaurant grabbed
the fourth place prize of
US$100. In fifth place was
Buddy Persaud who won
himself US$50. Each of the
five winners were awarded
trophies, while each contes-
tant was given a certificate of
participation.
Danny Basil, who hails
from Blairmont, on the West
Bank Berbice and was one of


the contenders, said: "I reaii
like the competition. It was a
fun full day [with] a lot of
merriment and lai'julr-
For Hitlall, a Queens real es--
tate magnate, it was a day he
would always remember.
"It's a day where al the
people could come out and have
a family fun day." He, too. said
that the central theme o0 the
competition was to give back
something to the NY Guvanese
community without asking for
anything in return.

stinting support and loyalty
over the years. As such, he dis-
cussed the idea with Hitlall
and a few other friends and
together they decided to go
ahead with staging the compe-
tition.
Elated by the success of this
their first venture, Persaud said
"the response was good for the
first time out. We plan on mak-
ing it an annual affair."
Before the competition was
over, word got around that the
Duck Curry Competition turned
out to be a great event and
people were singing its praises.
Asked what he thought was
the recipe for success at the
Duck Curry Competition,
Persaud was quick to reply:
"It's free entrance and great en-
tertainment," adding that "the
competition is meant to be a
family outing" and that since
Guyanese are "family-oriented",
it was a perfect event for them.

4' 44


He estimates the event attracted
close to 7000 patrons.
The hot tassa drum, a
prominent entertainment
feature in the Guyana compe-
tition, was sadly missing at
the New York end. Persaud
owns a tassa group called
'King's Tassa Group' and the
players usually sizzle the
gathering with the scintillat-
ing tassa beats at the Guyana
Duck Curry Competition.
However, in New York, orga-
nizers had little time to do in-
depth planning and the price
to hire a tassa group was ex-
orbitant
Also, in Guyana partici-
pants use firesides and dry
wood to cook their curries. Here,
participants were forced to use
gas stoves. Lighting fires in
parks or public places for the
purpose of cooking are prohib-
ited by NY State law.
Persaud lamented the fact
that not many West Indian res-
taurants took part in the compe-
tition. Those that participated
were the West Indian Roti Shop,
Kaieteur Restaurant, Bamboo
Garden and Rockaway Roti
Shop.
The criteria for judging
were taste (the best flavoured
curry), texture (the tender-
ness of the duck, that is, to
identify the most succulent
duck curry) and aroma (the
smell of the duck curry after
it is cooked). Ten points were
awarded each category.
Of the 11 judges, a few were
assigned to taste the curry, an-
other couple was asked to judge
the tenderness of the duck and
the rest were charged with se-
lecting the best aromatic flavored
curry. The points were then tal-
lied and the competitor with the
highest score won.
The judges, among them
Davindra, Krish Charran, Dr
Sohan, Anjee Singh, Kawal,
Totaram and Ray All, were se-

romantic atmosphere, as this
great Brazilian pianist/coriposer
performs along with others on,
guitar, flute, trombone, and percus-
sion. Stan Getz, on the other hand,
plays 'Falsa Bahiana' on his tenor
sax in a swift zestful manner ac-
companied by a samba/bossa nova
rhythm section.
Paul Winter along with
Brazilian vocalist Carlos Lyra,
delivers a beautifully cool clas-
sic bossa nova tune called 'Voce
E Eu', co-written by famous
Brazilian diplomat/composer,
De Moraes, and played by pi-
ano, guitar, and percussion by
Winter and friends. But one of
the best tunes on this essential,
CD is the instrumental piece
titled 'Creek', by the leading
Brazilian percussionist/com-
poser Airto Moreira, taken
from his first LP, titled 'Free'.
This tune is perfect evidence of
tropical jazz instrumentals
which evoke perfectly and ex-
citingly the rhythms of local ge-
ography. The tune simply
bubbles, flows, drips in endless
variations, like the sound of
creek water making its way over


rocks, sand, moss, etc. On this
great tune, Airto uses one of the
best flautists, the American Joe
Farrell, who, along. with
Hubert Laws, has come to de-
fine the essence of South Ameri-
can moods on the flute. Farrell
also plays an amazingly lyrical
soprano sax on this tune, com-
bined with Airto's diverse per-
cussion sounds, Deodato on
electric piano, and Ngudu wak-
ing up his drums. By making
Farrell's lush rushing flute central
to 'Creek, Airto asserts the ancient
SouthAmerican reliance on the flute
as a precious instrument our first
native peoples use& in dialogue
with the spirits of elemental and
earthly existence.
There are several other
beautiful and exciting tunes on
this CD, like Josee Koning's
'One Note Samba', Astrud
Gilberto's 'Zazueira', Terence
Blanchard's cool tropical
.sound on 'Aparecida', Miles
Davis' weird and haunting 'Nem
Um Talvez', and the brilliant
new young Brazilian male jazz
vocalist, Djavan, .who simply
surprises with his tune 'Lu,'..


However, one tune that really
stands out with classic artistry
is Sarah Vaughan's stunning
vocal on 'Nothing Will Be As It
Was', written by Brazilians, and'
performed on Sarah's totally
Brazilian CD near the end of her
life in the 1980s. Here, Vaughan,
one of the greatest singers that
ever lived, shocks us with her
still dominant, clear and fresh,
ageless voice which stretches
out its deep Afro beauty to sing
'Tell Me When WillIBe With My
People', and repeat the beauti-
ful poetic line: 'Holding on to a
teardrop of sun in the mouth of
the night'. Vaughan is held up
high with tenor sax, guitar, per-
cussion and drums.
The final tune that must be
mentioned is Weather Report's
'Jungle Book' composed by Joe
Zawinul, and it is this final tune
that takes us right back to pre-
Columbian or even prehistoric
times in South America, where
a native melody of sounds and
voices slowly rises to end the CD
in a stunning percussive conga'
crescendo of unforgettable tropi-
cal modem jazz.

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. To-
day we'll be looking plants (How is Water
given off by Plants?).

Plants

How Is Water given off by Plants?

What else can leaves do for plants? Knowing
they manufacture food for the plants by the pro-
cess, which is called photosynthesis.

Let's find out how this is done by conducting a
little experiment.

An experiment

Things you need
* Twine or string
* Plastic bags
* Two potted plants

1. Water the soil of each potted plants, us-

Here is another experiment for you to try.


Experiment # 1: Take a large test-tube,
and roll up some newspaper so that it fits in
exactly, with some space in the centre. Half-
fill the tube with water, and shake it so that
the paper becomes thoroughly wet. Now take
three or four seeds which have been soaked
for an hour, and push them between the pa-
per and the glass of the tube or any similar
container. You will be able to see what hap-
pens to them.

According to the records,
the matter has its origins in an
unlawful assault case in 1973 in
which Hardatt, also called
Ghandie, was charged with un-
lawfully assaulting one Marin

tual bodily harm. !,
During the course of the
trial, the magistrate admitted
into evidence the medical report
of a registered medical practitio-
ner issued within 48 hours of
his examination of the injuries
found on Muthoo.
In order to rebut Muthoo's
story that the assault was un-
provoked, counsel for the re-
spondent, Mr K A Juman-
Yassin, tendered in evidence a
document purporting to be a re-

guilty, and in his reasons for de-
cision, the magistrate with re-
spect to this latter medical re-
port, had said that it Was inad-
missible as the injuries sustained
by the respondent were not the
subject of a prosecution for a
criminal offence and thus the
document was not one caught
within the ambit of the provi-
sions of section 43 (4) of the
Evidence Act. Chapter 5:03'
which read as follows!:
'The provision of this sec-


tion shall, with
a the necessary
modifications,
LAY apply to a docu-
UA ment purporting
to be a post-
mortem report of duly regis-
tered medical practitioner, and
to a document purporting to be
a report made by such medical
practitioner within 48 hours of
his examination of any injury
received by, or the condition of
a person which is the subject of
a prosecution for a criminal of-
fence.'"
Directing his remarks to the
Full Court, Justice Luckhoo
said:
"In the Full Court, on ap-
peal, the learned judges there
disagreed with the view talten
by theimagistrate and held that
he had misdirected himself when
he stated that the medical report
was inadmissible. The Full
Court came to the conclusion
that it was inadmissible in evi-
dence under the section of the


Act, and that the exclusion by
the magistrate from his consid-
eration of the medical report re-
lating to the injuries which the
doctor had found on examina-
tion of the respondent
amounted to a grave miscarriage
of justice rendering the entire
trial a nullity. The appeal was
accordingly allowed by that
Court and the conviction and or-
der of the magistrate sdt aside."
In conclusion, Justice
Luckhoo declared: 1
"We regret we have to dif-
fer from the learned judges
of the Full Court 'in their
construction of the section
under review.,The appeal is
allowed, the judgment and
the order of the Full Court
are set aside, a:d the deci-
sij! and the order, of convic-
tion made by fhe learned

that we propose to set aside
the penalty imppsed and to
substitute a reprimand and
discharge in its place."

Prepared by Mr Lennox
Julian Hernandez, Senior
Lecturer, Department of
Architecture, University of
Guyana, for the National
Trust of Guyana. 2005-09-13
IN AN earlier article in this
series, we learnt from Karna
Bahadur Singh (Temples and
Mosques: An Illustrated Study
of East.Indian Places of Wor-
ship in Guyana) that the first
temples and mosques in the
then British Guiana "exhibit
the solidity and permanence
of a period of consolidation."
Also, that "in the authentic
rendering of traditional ar-
chitectural forms, they ex-
hibit the impulse to
concretise visually the ances-
tral landscape." The
Queenstown Mosque meets


these characteristics in its ar-
chitecture to a great extent.
The Queenstown Mosque
(lama Masjid) located on
Church Street in Queenstown,
is the oldest place of Islamic
worship in Georgetown, though
much of the extant structure
dates from 1963. The founda-
tion stone of the mosque was
laid in 1897. The mosque faces
the Qibla, the direction of
prayer for Muslims, 108 north,
and there is a spacious lawn on
the south, a Qurbangha, to ac-
commodate the sacrifice on Eid-
ul-Azah. Unlike the Canje
Mosque, the Queenstown
Masjid does not have towers
(minarets) either real or decora-
tive, for the call to prayer. Typi-
cal of mosques though, it has
domes (gumbars), three in this
case. The larger central dome


(Part 6)
defines the location of the
mihrab that indicates the direc-
tion towards Mecca that the
faithful must face during
prayers, whilst the other two
are decorative.
The original structure
was built through self-help
by the Muslim community;
comprising Muslims from In-
dia and Afghanistan. They
provided both labour and fi-
nancing, the land being pur-
chased from the government.
The initiative and supervi-
sory support to this project is
credited to an indentured Af-
ghan, Mr Goolmohamed
Khan, who later became the
first Imam. The original


Hindu and Muslim places of worship:

t ~THIS^


structure was of timber, 45 ft
long, 30 ft wide, and approxi-
mately 25 ft high. Of the
three domes (gumbars) over
the roofed enclosure, the cen-
tral dome was almost twice
the size of the other two that
flanked it, north and south.
Writing in 1903, James
Rodway describes the mosque
as "a striking object in
Queenstown with its domes,
which give a suggestion of the
far East." In the 1940s, a roofed
gallery (a Sahan) was added ad-
joining the original structure on
the western side, this being the
entrance to the mosque. The 10-


foot wide gallery was built in the
colonial architectural style with
balustraded handrails and turned
timber columns. This would
have met with Karna Bahadur
Singh's description of the
mosque as being of "Indo -Cre-
ole" architecture.
Extensive repairs and reno-
vation were undertaken in 1963,
bringing the masjid to its
present dimensions and form.
These involved the demolition
of the balustrading on the west-
ern side and, it appears, the
demolition of the original timber
walls of the entire building, and
its simultaneous replacement

we respectfully request that
you be vigilant, thus acting
as a deterrent to those who

he published Caribbean Mythology "specifically be-
cause we want young people to have material available to
them to study in schools and do for drama festivals and
so on.
She added. "I just absolutely love young people. I think
they ate the future. It's easy for me to work with them-and
you don't get any bulls--- from them.
"I think I have more in common with young people than
older people. I'm an eternal child. I still have. a lot of moments
when things surprise me. I'm sail seeing a lot of things for the
first time. I'm still feeling very deeply without too much self-
consciousness. At my core I'm still really who I was when I
was 14. 15 years."
Having spent a childhood immersed m music (she has stud-
ied violin, voice, piano), elocution (reciting poetry since she was
five) and dance, she discovered theatre in her early teens.
"That's what I knew I loved."
That was around the time she met her mentors,
Jamaican Al Creighton and Trinidadian Lester Efebo
Wilkinson, both influenual writers and directors. Creighton
is now deputy vice-chancellor of the University of Guyana
and Wilkinson, permanent secretary in T&T's Ministry of
Legal Affairs.
In addinon to having a half-%white. half-black Si Lucian
mother and a half-Syrian and half-Easi Indian Gu',nese father.
those mentors helped shape the multi-ethnic. pan-Caribbean
nature of her work. Her Unicef job al-so rook her around the
Caribbean, and, she said in an e-mad on September 9. "though
it was not a job in the arts. a lot of my programme design and
free time on these assignments found me doing some arti nc

collection, won the Guyana Prize for Literature in May
this year. The NMassacuraman. another of the plays. won
best play and best director at the Caribbean Secondary
Schools Drama Festival in Jamaica in 2000.
The plays in the collection draw on Carrbbean folklore and
tradition to frame responses to modern dilemmas like women's
oppression, environmental degradation and the HIV/Aids pan-
demic.
Those themes recur in her work, which she said often deals
with different aspect of morality.
Mohamed has a first degree in communications and a
master's in sociology from the Uni\ersiry of Guyana, and is at
UWI, St Augustine completing a PhD in social psychology/so-
ciology which she began at Harvard.
Of her %%ork, she said in the e-mail that she wkas proud of
the fact that her book on child abuse in Guyana isee sidebar)
helped shape the Guyanese national communications strategy
against child abuse, which is still in use.
"I am most proud of mn success in getting drama and music
accepted as a valid means of communicating behaviour change
and development messages while at Unicef," she added.
"I've written quite diversely on anything that I'm in-
terested in-and I'm interested in quite a lot of things."

COMPLICATIONS
ARISING FROM
ANTIBIOTIC
MISUSE

I AM going to begin
this article with a harsh
statement. All drugs
should be viewed as
being potentially
harmful, even toxic. For
example, a relatively
simple drug like
Aspirin can be lethal to
a patient, if too much
of it is administered,


especially if the dog
has severe lesions in
the stomach. Often, the
side effects may be
more dangerous than
the disease itself.
Perhaps, it is for that
reason that we now see
on TV the possible side
effects being listed
when an advertisement
is made for any
medication. This
imperative has now
been written into
American law.


The moral of the story
is that antibiotics should
never be given unless
there are justifiable indi-
cations thereof, and that
justifiablenesss' could only
be arrived at after consul-
tation with an advice from
a veterinarian.
Further, if at any time
during the dosage regime
you notice that your ani-
mal is not responding well
(vomiting, lethargy, etc) to
the medication, you must
discontinue usage and


Please implement disease preventative measures (vaccinations, routine dewormings, monthly
anti-Heartworm medication, etc) andadopt-a-pet from the GSPCA'sAnimal Clinic and Shelter
atRobb Street and Orange Walk, if you have the wherewithal to care well for the animals.
Do not stray your unwanted pets, take them to the GSPCA Clinic and Shelter instead. Also
find out more about the Society's free spay and neutering programme. If you see anyone
being cruel to an animal, get in touch with the Clinic and Shelter by calling 226-4237.

using data provided in
a book authored by
Drs Carlson and Giffin,
to link specific antibiot-

Guyexpo

Guyexpo 2005 promises to be


By Mark Ramotar


'GUYEXPO 2005' the an-
nual trade and investment ex-
position to be opened later
this week promises to be,
not necessarily bigger but
certainly better than last
year's mega-event, according
-to the organizers.
The show last year saw an
- "exponential increase" in atten-
- dance and an overwhelming "ex-
hibitor" response.
Organisers explained that
because of the overwhelming ex-
hibitor and public response, it
was decided to make the bi-an-
nual event an annual expo.
To be held under the theme
'Pride in our Industry',
GUYEXPO 2005 was officially
launched at the National Exhi-
bition Centre in Sophia,
Georgetown on June 14, fol-
lowed by the unveiling of a large
promotional poster by Presi-
dent Bharrat Jagdeo. The expo
is billed to be held at the same
location from September 22 -
27.
Minister of Tourism, Indus-
try and Commerce, Mr.
Manzoor Nadir, came in for "a
lot of praise" at the launching
ceremony for his hard work and
commitment to staging and pro-
moting the exposition which
was first launched in 1995.
He said the overwhelming
exhibitor and public response to
last year's GUYEXPO was
"unprecedented".
"While plans were put in
place for this very large show,
these could not cope with the
exponential increase in atten-
dance," he told the gathering
while assuring that plans are in
place to deal with such a recur-
rence.
..Mr. Nadir said tickets will
be sold one week prior to the
exhibition to prevent the huge
crowds at the entrance of the
compound, and can be pur-
chased from the National Cul-
tural Centre, Ministry of Tour-
ism, Industry and Commerce
and GUYEXPO Secretariat.
The Minister said 15000
_adult and 400 children tickets,
which have already been de-
signed, will be sold per day,
with a different color each day,
and there will be a security fea-
ture to .discourage scams. More
than 800 vehicles will also be ac-
commodated in a secured and
-paid-for parking environment
on the ground.
GUYEXPO began as a
show which showcased locally
produced goods and services. In
2004, noting the growth and in-


terdependence of international
trade, organizers opened the ex-
hibition to Caribbean Commu-
nity (CARICOM) and extra-re-
gional exhibitor participation.
Nadir noted that over the
years, the government had sup-
ported a number of initiatives
to stimulate and assist the
manufacturing sector. These in-
clude the provision of land at
concessionary rates at the in-
dustrial estate; putting in place
an attractive incentive package;
and the promotion of locally
produced goods and services
overseas via trade, shows
(Guyana on Show).
President Jagdeo, in his re-
marks, reiterated that
GUYEXPO is an occasion for
every Guyanese to feel proud
of his or her country because
the exhibition showcases to the
world that abundance of talent,
entrepreneurship and ideas that
reside within the land.
The President is also en-
couraging local, regional and
extra-regional participation at
the show.


Co-Chairman of GUYEXPO
2005, Mr. Keith Burrowes,
thanked the members of the plan-
ning committee who he said are
the "ones on the ground" who
really make a significant contri-
bution to the success of the
event.
"As you know, the exhibi-
tion is held once every two years
but because of the success we
had last year, a decision was
taken to have it again this year,"
said Burrowes, now serving in
his third year as chairman of this
important event.
He recalled a speech by
President Jagdeo at the opening
of GUYEXO 2004 when the
Guyanese Head of State high-
lighted the significant contribu-
tions the trade and investment
expositions are making towards
the development of Guyana.
Mr. Edward Boyer, Vice
President of the Georgetown
Chamber of Commerce and In-
dustry (GCCI) one of the old-
est private sector organizations
in the Caribbean, established
since 1889 commended Nadir


and his staff at the Ministry of
Tourism, Industry and Com-
merce, GO-INVEST and
GUYEXPO's planning commit-
tee for the "planning, organising
and promotion" of the mega-
event.
Noting that it is the largest
trade and investment exposition
in Guyana, Boyer said the event
is "one of the best ways in mar-
keting in today's business envi-
ronment and in the world". Ac-
cording to him, marketing by
way, of trade fairs is "a new
tool".
He also expressed hope and
optimism that there will be more
public and private sector part-
nerships in the future, similar to
that being displayed for the
GUYEXPO event.
Chief Executive Officer
(CEO) of the Guyana Office for
Investment (GOINVEST), Mr.
Geoffrey DaSilva, commended
this partnership between the
government and the private sec-
tor to make GUYEXPO a pro-
gressively bigger and better
event.


According to DaSilva, this
exposition has a dual function of
encouraging and promoting trade
and investment. He noted that
in today's competitive world,
governments are combining
trade promotion and investment
promotion. In 1999, the Guyana
Government merged
GOINVEST with the Guyana
Export Promotion Council.
"We hope to encourage
even more companies from
CARICOM, North America and
even Asia to come and take part
in GUYEXPO as full partici-
pants because this is the way to
build bilateral trade based on
reciprocity," DaSilva asserted.
He also indicated that
GUYEXPO, in a sense, has
been extended overseas in the
last two years through the
'Guyana Trade and Investment
Expositions' whereby small,
medium and large Guyanese
companies got the opportunity
to showcase their products and
services in countries like
Antiguh (twice), Barbados,
Trinidad, Suriname, Toronto


and Suriname. The most recent
expositions were held Canada
and New York.
"Over the past two and a
half years, 143 Guyanese com-
panies have participated in these
Guyana Trade and Investment
Expositions overseas... and this
is a reflection of the strategy of.
the Guyana Government in pro-
moting and encouraging trade
and investment," DaSilva pos-
ited.
The Go-Invest Head also
expressed the hope that
GUYEXPO 2005 can extend to
South America and other parts
of the world.
President of the Guyana
Small Business Association, Mr
Patrick Zephyr, commended
Nadir for the initiative of mov-
ing GUYEXPO from a bi-an-
nual to an annual event. "This
shows the popularity and the
ineaningful role GUYEXPO is
playing in the development of
industries in Guyana," he said.
Similar sentiments were also
expressed by President of the
Association of Regional Cham-
bers of Commerce (ARCC), Mr
Joshua Safeek and Chairman of
the Private Sector Commission
(PSC), Mr Yesu Persaud.
The ARCC encompasses
14 small chambers of commerce
throughout Guyana and Safeek
indicated that all mostly lo-
cated in the rural areas will be
participating in GUYEXPO
2005.
"Guyana is a great coun-
try for returns on your
money," the businessman
posited.

NGMC, the flag ship for


non-traditional exports
The Guyana Gonvernment lW iN ElFAAL' 'lA llPQS l. tS


through the "New" Guyana
Marketing Corporation
(NGCMC) has given continued
focus to the repositioning of
the agriculture sector to rest
on two strategic pillars of glo-
bal competitiveness and bal-
aniced the development and
sustainability of. rural areas..
This repositioning requires
tremendous efforts, which can
assist in the redefinition.of
Guyana's agriculture sector.
Over the years, Government
through NGMC has urged farm-
ers to diversify their agricultural
production to include non-tradi-
tional crops, which is in high


demand worldwide. Results in
this area have been encouraging,
as farmers have started the pro-
cess of producing a higher qual-
ity of non-traditional crops for
exports to countries within the


Caribbean Region and extra-re-'.
gionally.
To assist farmers, exporters
and to boost efforts to diversify
the agriculture sector, Govern-
ment established the "New"


vuyana 's

Guyana Marketing Corporation
(NGMC),. incorporated under
the Act of Chapter 19.05, Sec-
tion 46 of Order No. 97/1963
of the Laws of Guyana, to pro-
vide opportunities for farmers
to produce higher quality prod-
udts and increase their produc-
tion levels.
Today, many farmers rely
on the NGMC to market their
products both locally and over-
seas.
; The Corporation has three
main divisions, Marketing,
Technical and Administrative
and Accounts. The Marketing
*and Technical Divisions are
managed by the General Man-
ager, the Administrative De-
partment by the Deputy Gen-
eral manager and the Accounts


Department by an accountant.
The NGMC provides link-
ages between overseas and local
exporters for agriculture com-
modities and once a request is
made for fresh farm produce, the
organisation seeks the services
of producers and a link is made
with the buyers.
Farmers, however, indepen-
dent of the NGMC, 'make all
deals in relation to money with
the potential overseas buyer.
Guyana currently exports
produce to several Caribbean
countries, North America. and
Canada among others.
NGMC has also promoted
Guyanese fresh and processed
non-traditional agricultural pro-
duce through participation in the
Guyana Trade and Investment
Exhibition held in St. Lucia. -
Officials in St. Lucia were
impressed with the products


and subsequently the two coun-
tries signed a protocol relating:
to thetrade of fresh produce be-
tween Guyana and St. Lucia of
initially, watermelon, pumpkin
and pineapple.
NGMC has been participat-
ing too in, a number of trade
shows both locally and overseas'
in promoting Guyana's fresh ag-
ricultural products. The' results'
from these ventures is testi-'
mony that Guyana's product
ranks high on the demand list.
NGMC, meanwhile, has
provided an export facility at
Sophia which is 'being utilised
by many farmers and exporters
to package their products for
export.
This' facility which is the
closest to the capital,
Georgetown, has proven to be
very beneficial as it reduces
the cost of hauling containers.

Guyeexpo
210 05


Chairman of the Private Sector Commission


Yesu Persaud message


Guyexpo is the largest exhi-
bition held annually that
showcases Guyanese prod-
ucts and services to local and
overseas buyers. This oppor-
tunity to promote our local
products and services to over-
seas Companies and buyers
has been a tremendous ben-
efit to many Guyanese pro-
ducers and this year it is ex-
pected there will be a larger
overseas participation and
buyers at the exhibition.
The Guyanese people are
entrepreneurial minded and we
can see, with very little and so
many odds against our manufac-
turers of goods and services,
how much has been accom-
plished by our Private Sector
despite the level of political in-
stability in the country. Politi-
-cal stability is of paramount
importance for us as a country
to attract investors to partici-
pate in the drive to expand the
Guyanese economy.
At present we are totally


dependant on the export com-
modities which fluctuate de-
pending on market forces. The
Sugar Industry, the backbone of
Guyana is under threat as the
European Union intends to re-
duce the preferential price re-
gime substantially to ACP pro-
ducers like Guyana. This will
be catastrophic to a country like
ours bearing in mind that sugar
is the largest employer of labour
and contributes over 20% to the
GDP of the nation. The need
to diversify the economy for
greater value added production
is now more an imperative than
ever before. The hue and cry
should be for the converting of
raw materials into value-added
products to be sold in the inter-
national market.
Guyana is a very small
market and its dependence on
trade is overwhelming. It there-
fore becomes more imperative
that the Administration and the
Private Sector work together as
partners in creating a Private


Sector led growth, p
products and service
highest quality and b
deliver these at cot
prices on the regional
the global market. On
ary 2006 the CSME c
operation and the G
market will be flooded


--GUE I'200 *e -Rz


ported low cost products from
the Region. We have very little
time to set into motion plans to
produce high value-added prod-
ucts.
The productive sector
I should be given the motivation,
help and incentives needed to
propel the production of value-
S added products for the export
market. Time is not on our
side, but with the Government
and the Private Sector working
S together in all sectors, there is
no doubt that we could produce
quality value-added goods and
services and deliver these where,
how and when it is wanted.
The export market is, how-
ever, very competitive and there
are many hurdles that we will
have to be overcome but with
perseverance and top quality
products, there is no reason
why we cannot penetrate the
producing new markets.
es of the I would like to re-empha-
re able to size what I have been saying for
mpetitive many years. The dependence of
as well as the economy after 39 years of
1st Janu- independence on primary com-
omes into modities has been too over-
3uyanese whelming and is now counter-
I with im- productive for serious develop-
ment and growth. The need is
E to shift gears into value-added,
export-oriented products for
niche markets is now more criti-
cally clear for national develop-
i ment, given our small local mar-
ket and lack of purchasing
power. To achieve these ob-
jectives Government has to
pursue a pro-business policy
offering attractive incentives to
local and foreign investors to
provide the platform for export
led growth. Equally important
is political and economic stabil-
ity. These are imperative to cre-


ate a climate of confidence that
would attract local and foreign
investors and so necessary to
create jobs and wealth for
Guyanese people.
We wish all our Manu-
facturers and Producers suc-
cess at Guyexpo 2005 and


hope that our visitors from
overseas at the exhibition will
leave our country having
made large orders for our
products and that they will
also take the opportunity of
visiting the many beautiful
sights of our country.

campaign. This campaign will
run for one year and will pro-
mote good quality, locally manu-
factured goods and services.

GUYEXPO 2005
This year, the aim is to im-
prove the quality of the experi-
ence for patrons and exhibitors.
Exhibition space for
expo 2005 has been sold
Businesses have chafiged
-roach as they have reg-
-for- multiple booth
spaces, rather that one or two,
as was common during previous
years. The response has been
overwhelming, since persons are
still coming in to the Secretariat
pleading for additional spaces.
To date approximately 220
local businesses have registered
to participate in Guyexpo 2005
along with several other overseas
companies which will be part of
the event.

SPONSORS
Guyexpo 2005 has at-
tracted several sponsors includ-
ing Clico (Guyana) Limited,
Guyana Telephone & Telegraph
Company, BWIA and the Euro-
pean Union, Guyoil Castrol
CLICO will be providing a
gate prize of a car
BWIA will be giving away
two free tickets to any of its
destination.

The compound team has
carried out 85% of palling of
internal sub-drains erroded by
flood waters earlier this year.
Both trenches parallel to the
Eastern Highway were
cleaned by Compound Work-
ers. Clearing of some shallow
drains with Mechanical
equipment is planned before

MANY CHANGES MANY OPPORTUNITIES


GUYANA is a country and economy

in transition. Modernisation is

under way in all sectors.


Having weathered most of
the challenges associated with
the IMF-World Bank structural
reform process, Guyana is now
emerging as an attractive market
for investors.
It offers investors the
benefits of a stable and open
financial market, a corporate
tax regime that allows for the
full repatriation of capital,
profits and dividends, and a
political environment that is
becoming steadier as the efforts
of the reform process bear
fruit.
Over the last four years, the
Guyana Office for Investment
(GO-INVEST) has recorded 70
foreign investment projects and
74 domestic investors for a to-
tal investment of US$424M.
These investors have ex-
panded their businesses or estab-
lished new ventures in the areas
of economic activity: seafood
and poultry processing; gold;
diamonds; bauxite; oil explora-
tion; sugar and rice processing;
fruit juice processing; eco-tour-
ism hotels and resorts of all
sizes; wood processing (furni-
ture, flooring, decking, shingles,
houses, veneer, moldings); finan-
cial services; energy (solar and
wind); housing estates; air trans-
portation; call centres for Back
Office Processing; cellular ser-
vices; rum, beer and food prod-
ucts; fish farming; quarrying; milk
processing,. boiled water; con-
:tructnon .e prices, printing; mu-
sical productions; pharmaceuti-
Scals; bus, trucking and taxi ser-
vices: .
The investment projects are
of all sizes micro, small, me-
dium and. large and they are
located in Regions One (Barima'
\V. ninl, iT o IPoineiroon'
Supenaaam),'Four (Demerara/
Mahaica), Six (East Berbice/
Corentyne), Seven (Cuyuni/
Mazaruni), Nine (Upper
Takutu/Upper Esseqibo) and
10 (Upper Demerara/Berbice),
that is, in eight of the 10 admin-
istrative regions in Guyana.
The foreign investors are
mainly from Canada, the United
States of America, Malaysia,
China and Brazil. About 40%
are overseas-based Guyanese.
Other. investors come from
Barbados, Russia, France, Saint
Vincent andthe Grenadines, Is-
rael, Holland, Philippines, South


Africa, Jamaica and Trinidad
and Tobago.

GUYANA'S
INVESTMENT
STRATEGY
The Government of
Guyana, under the dynamic
leadership of President Bharrat
Jagdeo, is implementing new
policies to transform Guyana
from a low-income country to
a middle income, semi-industrial
one by creating a business-
friendly environment that pro-
motes and supports a dynamic
and growing private sector and
by improving the quality and
skill levels of its labour force.
The main investment oppor-
tunities are in agro-processing,
eco-tourism, forestry products,
Information and Communica-
tions Technology (ICT), mining,
fisheries and manufacturing.
There are attractive incen-
tive packages for these sectors.
[See Investor Roadmap Incen-
tives on GO-INVEST website
at http://www.goinvest.gov.gy/
guyana.htmll
The focus of the strategy is
to support and attract existing
and potential Guyanese and


foreign investors to invest in the
manufacture and provision of
value-added products and ser-
vices for export.
There are six (6) compo-
nents:
[a] improve the competi-
tiveness of Guyanese busi-
nesses through a new business
culture that is collaborative and
innovative
[b] Diversify economic ac-
tivities away from primary pro-
duction to value-added branded
products and services in "tradi-
tional" and "non-traditional" in-
dustries
[c] Promote the simulta-
neous and balanced develop-
ment of domestic and foreign in-
vestment projects, including
joint ventures
[d] Consistently support
the expansion of and the estab-
lishment of new micro, small,
medium and large companies
[e] Support the equitable
distribution of economic activi-
ties across Guyana
[f] Maintain and expand
the presence of Guyanese prod-
ucts in current export markets
and expand into new markets.
The Guyana Office for In-
vestment (GO-INVEST),
Guyana's investment and ex-
port promotion agency that is
under the direct purview of the
Office of the President, with
other agencies in the public and
private sectors, are engaged in


an aggressive campaign to
implement this strategy.
Guyana is undergoing an
important shift from an agricul-
tural and mining economy to
one more firmly grounded in
services, manufacturing and
construction. Whereas ten years
ago in 1995 agriculture and
mining accounted for over 58%
of GDP, presently they consti-
tute a 38.8% share of GDP.
Since May 2002, invest-
ment and export promotion mis-
sions have held Guyana Trade
and Investment Expositions in
Antigua and Barbuda; St. Lucia;
Barbados; Trinidad and Tobago;
Suriname; Toronto, Canada; and
New York City in the U.S.A.
Over 153 Guyana-based
companies have participated in
these Expositions. [See list on
homepage of GO-INVEST
website]
Based on professional mar-
ket studies, these companies
have been taking advantage of
export opportunities in mainly
six CARICOM markets for
fresh and processed foods, for
wood products and for jewellery
and handicraft products.
The feedback so far from
businesses is that new distribu-
torships, alliances and joint
ventures have been created.
It is also notable that both
export and import volumes for
Guyana have "spiked" during
2003 and 2004, increasing by

At first glance, Guyana's
relatively small population of
780,000 people and the level of
income, at only US$986 per
capital, makes its domestic mar-
ket appear very limited.
However, the purchasing
power of the population is es-
timated to be US$3,700, almost
four times its per capital income.
Additionally, the overseas
Guyanese population in
Canada, the United States,
CARICOM and the United
Kingdom is about 800,000
people, many of whom want to
buy products and services made
and grown in Guyana.

WHY GUYANA?
Labour +A skilled
workforce that is well educated.
+Wages are highly competi-
tive in comparison with other
CARICOM and surrounding
countries.
Language +Guyana is the
only English-speaking nation in
South America.
This is a distinct advantage
for investors who want to par-
ticipate in the burgeoning IT in-
dustry that is servicing lucrative
North American markets for
Back Office Processing con-
tracts; and for the tourist indus-
try.
Location +Along with its
CARICOM status, Guyana bor-
ders two of the most important
economies in South America.
Most Guyanese products have
preferential access to the markets
of its Brazilian and Venezuelan
neighbours whose economies
constitute a combined GDP of
US$883 billion and a population
of 201 million people!
+Guyana's CARICOM
membership provides investors
with opportunities to invest in
the CARICOM Single Market
and Economy with a popula-
tion of over 6 million people,
plus the 20 million tourists that
visit the Caribbean annually.
CARICOM has a combined
GDP of US$39 billion (at pur-
chasing power parity estimated
for 2004).
+Guyana enjoys preferential
treatment in the United States


market under the Enhanced Car-
ibbean Basin Initiative, providing
access similar to that enjoyed by
Mexico and Canada. Some prod-
ucts also have special access to
the European Union and Cana-
dian markets.
+In the next 10 years, the
most important investment op-
portunities will be in the devel-
opment of the Guyana north-
ern Brazil Project. It will include
highways, hydro-power genera-
tion, deep-water ports, tele-
communication links, soybean
farms, fish farms, meat and
dairy centers, alumina plants, oil
and gas facilities, IT parks, gold
and diamond mines, and phar-
maceutical factories based on
Guyana's rich bio-diversity.

A STABLE MACRO-
ECONOMIC FRAMEWORK
+Low inflation, declining in-
terest rates, a stable Exchange
Rate

ABUNDANT LAND,
MINERALS, WATER AND
OTHER NATURAL
RESOURCES
+ Tropical hardwoods, gold,
diamonds, bauxite, sand, laterite,'

Moving into Val





Added Sugars


if it does not come from Demerara it is not Deme


MANY, many years ago,: in
1832 to be exact, at Vreed-en-
Hoop Estate on the West
Bank of Demerara, an inno-
vative process involving the
use of a vacuum pan with
steam energy was introduced
in the manufacturing of
sugar.
The sugar crystals thus
produced was so refined and of
such superior quality to render
it inadmissible as muscovado
sugar, the dark, sticky type
sugar commonly produced at
the time.
As a result it was classified
by the British authorities as
"Demerara Crystals", and sub-
sequently referred to as
"Demerara Sugar".
The rest, as they say, is his-
tory. Time has seen many incar-
nations of "Demerara Sugar" and
its widespread adoption by
sugar producing countries all
.over the world. Sugar beet manu-
facturers are now producing
"Demerara Sugar", and much of
the "Demerara Sugar" sold in-'
ternationally is actually refined
sugar coated with molasses. In-
deed, the term has become ge-
neric for just about any type of
brown sugar.
Legal recognition of the term
"Demerara Sugar" as a sugar
produced in Demerara region in
Guyana was ended in Novem-
ber 1913 by a decision of the


High Court of Justice at London.
A Metropolitan Police
Magistrate dismissed the case
against the sale of sugar de-
scribed as Demerara sugar, but
which was in fact not the genu-
ine material.:
The litigation was dis-
missed on the grounds that the
expression had become a con-
ventional term for the yellow
crystal sugar not necessarily
produced in Demerara.
The Court however agreed


to give leave to appeal which
was dismissed by the High
Court of Justice.
One of the learned Judges.
opined that the sugar in ques-
tion was Demerara sugar in ev-
ery respect except that it was
not grown in Demerara.
The Oxford Dictionary
[(1990) Clarendon Press Ox-
ford] defines "Demerara Sugar"
as "light brown cane sugar com-
ing originally and chiefly from
Demerara. [Demerara a region in


Guyana].

What does it take to transform
a small family-run, commu-
nity-based business into a se-
rious national and increas-
ingly international entity? If
anybody knows the answer, its
Feroze owner of Twins
Manufacturing: Chemists.
Feroze says that he practi-
cally grew uip in his father's
pharmacy.in East La Penitence,-
fascinatedfrom an early age with
the strange alchemy then went
into mixiiig and dispensing
drugs. Some of the business
sense seemed to have rubbed off
on him as well.
When the government de-
cided in a-bid to stimulate lo-
cal production started devel-
opment of the Ruimveldt In-
dustrial Estate in Georgetown,
Feroze enthusiastically took a


chance at investing in building a
factory there. He believed then,
as he believes now, that local.
production is one of the most
powerful stimulants to the
economy since it provides jobs,
in addition to both saving and
earning foreign exchange.,
He decided to name the.,
business Twins after his father's'
pharmacy. According to
Feroze, what is now a registered
company name came about in- -
cidentally. His paternal grand-
father was one half of a twin,
two Cornelia Ida siblings who
took their business to
Georgetown. Customers used
to casually refer to their phar-
macy as the "The twins place"
and the name stuck
"We started out producing
Hygenol antiseptic and germi-


cide, a pine oil product," says
Feroze. Today the inventory of
Twins products includes, tonics,.
cough syrups, personal care
products, insecticide, glass
cleaner, perfume and even dis-.
tilled water. He and his wife
Zabeeda spent the past thin\
odd years building the company
up from scratch; the company's
core strategy being to develop,.
manufacture and market prod-,
ucts that people are going to find
useful in their day to day lives.
Feroze says that he doesn't
bank on a nationalistic senti-
ment to market his products lo-
cally; he doesn't feel that some-
one should buy what he's sell-
ing simply because it was made
by a Guyanese company in
"Guyana. He feels that the qual-
ity of what Twins has to offer

ists display copped the best booth display.


should speak for itself; and he's
confident that his products have
a lot to say not only locally but
in the overseas market as well.
For him Guyexpo 2005 is
an opportunity to get his
goods on display to foreign


visitors, especially those from
the smaller Caribbean is-
lands where he believes he
has a possibly fruitful mar-
ket. And as for any possible
expansion South, he hasn't
made up his mind quite yet


but he recently found out
that many of his products are
being smuggled into Brazil.,
This year, locally-based Bra-
zilians are invited to get a
look at the products from the
source.

The Government of Guyana, through the Ministry of Tourism, Industry and

Commerce, and with support from the Private Sector will launch a buy local

campaign to mainly reclaim the local market for certain basic commodities.


Themed 'Pride in our Industry'
it is expected that through the
campaign Guyanese consumers
will enhance their purchase, ot
local commodities, while at the
same time, manufacturers
will enhance the quality
of products being offered
on the local market.

COMMERCE
The Commerce Divi-
sion of the Ministry has
already taken some steps C-
to restore pride in the in-
dustry in keeping with
its mandate to create an
enabling environment for
business in Guyana.
To this end the divi- -,
sion has over the last year -.

collaborated with
the Office of the Presi- -
dent a Draft Policy Dis- g.
cussion Paper entitled .-
Enhancing National
Competitiveness: Imple-
menting the National
Strategy.
collaborated with
our partners in the pri-
vate sector to develop a
strategy and implementa-
tion plan aimed at
strengthening the ability
of the local garment sec-
tor to meet critical suc-
cess factors, become
more competitive, and es-
tablish linkages with in-
ternational markets.
set the stage for
encouraging the develop- -4.b
ment of E-Commerce in
Guyana through the pro-
duction of Draft E-Com-
merce Legislation and a
Draft Policy Discussion
Paper entitled, Towards an E-
Commerce Strategy for Guyana.

CONSUMER AFFAIRS
The Consumer Affairs Divi-
sion Consumers is of the view
too, that consumers can benefit
from a restoration of pride in our
industry, as the theme suggests.
Also, it is intended that through
this campaign, local consumers
will regain their confidence in
locally manufactured commodi-
ties being offered on the local
market.
The Consumer Affairs Divi-
sion, over the years has worked
assiduously to stimulate the


consuming public into action
that would demonstrate con-
'unier pou,.er and hai- ad-
equiaelk, Jdicharged iis re.pon-
.ibilhi, for educ.,air,. cc n itlmU er,


of their
rights and re- sponsibilities.
In 1992, the Division held
a seminar under the theme "EV-
ERY ONE IS A CONSUMER.
YOU ARE YOUR
BROTHER'S KEEPER" In
1995 the theme was "PREPAR-
ING CONSUMERS FOR THE
21ST CENTURY". Building on
these themes the Division has
overthe years established a live
Call-In Television Programme,
which allows interfacing with
the consumer and provided a
hotline desk open to the pub-
lic.
The 'Pride in our Industry'


c a m -
paign will cer-
tainly go a far way
in allowing the consum-
ers to have greater economic
purchasing power, thus enabling
them to reflect confidence in the
Industry

INDUSTRIAL
DEVELOPMENT
The world has witnessed
phenomenal changes in produc-
tive activities engineered by
technological development and
the demand for consumer items.
Globalistion has put small
economies at a great disadvan-


tage and hence, they cannot
afford to remain isolated.
With protected and preferential
market status being constantly
eroded, several producers now
face competition on both the
domestic and export markets.
For small economies to
prosper, they should pursue a
policy of industrialsation.
A developed industrial sec-
tor is necessary to move small
economics forward viz-a-viz
sustainable economic growth
and poverty reduction.
Guyana, as a developing
country, is heavily dependent


on its natural resources and is
vulnerable to external shocks
and movement of business
cycles, globally. The Govern-
ment of Guyana has recognized
the need to expand the manu-
facturing base of the economy,
through the development of in-
dustries.
Hence, lands for industrial
purpose are identified and de-
veloped to international stan-
dards. To date, there are three
(3) operational estates
namely Ruimveldt Industrial
Estate, Eccles Industrial Es-
tate and Coldingen Industrial
Estate.
These estates allow inves-
tors the latitude to manufacture
consumer items with a high
quality and within the regula-
tions of the regulatory bodies
that are integral to the suc-
cess of the enterprise and
the satisfaction of con-
SUnler'

While the main objective of
this campaign is a reduction of
Guyana's trade deficit with
other countries, opportunity
will also be taken to enhance the
relationship between manufac-
turers and consumers.
Consumers must be made to
see tangible benefits of support-
ing local businesses, whether it
be improved incomes, more job
opportunities, or general im-
provement in the standard of
living.
GUYEXPO 2005 provides
an excellent opportunity for the
launching of this campaign es-


pecially as manufacturers will
once again have an opportunity
for increased visibility of their
products, even smaller busi-
nesses which are somewhat
'low profile' will also be given
an added boost.
At GUYEXPO ordinary
citizens will be exposed to
Guyanese products that they
were previously unaware of,
and hence it is necessary that
the necessary impact be made
here for the purposes of
sustainability.
Some of the activities being
planned for the launching of this
campaign as part of
GUYEXPO activities are the
erecting of Billboards, produc-
tion of postrs, pens, buttons,
all with the'theme Pride in our
Industry emblazoned.
Following GUYEXPO,
there are plans to schedule a
number of their activities, in-
cluding inter alia:
Hosting of a Business
Forum (possibly at the end of
November) where opportunity
will be taken to sell the idea to
manufacturers and service pro-
viders.
Use of the theme Pride in
our Industry by all local com-
panies on their products, adver-
tising, etc.
Use of the MINTIC
Website to promote the cam-
paign
Organisation of live tele-
vision programs/panel discus-
sions involving stakeholders
(private sector and consumers).
Collaboration with pri-
vate sector for the setting up of
Point of Sale Displays in Super-
markets.
Promotion of award
schemes for both manufacturers
and consumers. For manufactur-
ers a Local Entrepreneur of the
Year Award could be considered,
whereas consumers could ben-
efit from giveaways in the form
of hampers of local products,
etc.
Provision of technical as-
sistance to companies to enable
the production of quality goods
and services. This will be done
through seminars, workshops,
attachment of technical experts
from other CARICOM Mem-
ber States, and other countries.
Production of promotional
materials such as television and
radio jingles, Bill Boards, Post-
ers, T-Shirts, pens, etc. with the
theme Pride in our Industry.
Features of successful
companies in newspapers and
on television, sharing informa-
tion on how their investment in
new technology, advertising,
packaging, etc. led to their prod-
ucts achieving success on local
and international markets.
Industrial Estates in
Guyana accommodate a wide
range of activities such as phar-
maceutical and chemicals, lum-
ber and wood products, furni-
ture manufacturing, food and
agro processing, fish process-
ing, printing and electronics,
fabrication and garment manu-
facturing.
There is also light manu-
facturing and cement blocks
manufacturing.

Banks DIH turns 50


While Guyespo is celebrating
its tenth anniversary, Banks
DIH one of the event's main
supporters is currently cel-
ebraling its 5O of operation.
For George McDonald,
marketing manager for Banks,
. Guyexpo 2005 is an opportu-
nity to display his company's
wide portfolio of products.
"It's an opportunity," says
McDonald, "to showcase our
products to a younger genera-
tion, as well as to update our
older supporters on the new
things we have to offer."
McDonald says that
Guyanese customers have been
the bedrock of Banks DHI with

Promoting healthy lifestyles -






Topco


From a cottage industry producing fresh juices in a kitchen
blender, to a state of the art Tetra Plant facility, Tropical Or-
chard Products Company Limited (Topco) has come a far way.
Started in 1983 as a cottage industry supplying fresh natural
fruit juices to friends and family of the then owner, Mr. Geoffrey
Murray, this company was acquired by Demerara Distillers Lim-
ited in 1993 and evolved into a full fledged industrial operation,
providing fresh fruit juices to restaurants, hotels and consumers
across the country.
Their famous cherry juice blend is sought out by visitors around
the world while their other seasonal juices such as plum, fruit
punch, passion fruit and guava have all helped TOPCO become a
household name.
In 2003, Topco took another major step forward, investing in a
state of the art, Tetra Pak plant and in June of that year, the new
wedged shape Topco juice drinks were launched to the Guyanese
consumers. These wedged shaped packages of
Cherry, Passion, F r u i t
Punch and Or- / ange
soon be-%
came a

choice for -
parents who -
wanted a
healthy alterna-
tive for their kids.
Piggy backing on the
success of the earlier flavours, Guava Cherry
and Cherry Passion were launched the following year and both con-
tinued the success stories of the earlier flavours.
Topco also launched a I Litre package under the WAVE brand
of 100% Orange Juice, Cherry Juice, Passion and Fruit Punch which
are also favourites for the breakfast table.
In June 2005 Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) announced a
new co-packing agreement with PepsiCo Inc to package the
Gatorade and Tropicana Branded products in 200ml Tetra Pak for
Guyana and the Caribbean markets.
This agreement was significant not
only for the company but for
Guyana as a whole
since it has helped to
boost exports of
value added products
from Guyana to the t
rest of the Caribbean.
This agreement
is also in keeping
with Topco's com- _
mitment to empha-
size the need for
children to develop .
healthy lifestyles "
early. The goal
of the company
has been to of- t
fer healthy
product choices
in schools by de-
veloping healthy
products that ap-
peal to kids and
by promoting
programs that en-
courage kids to
lead active lives.
The Gatorade
and Tropicana
brands are a perfect match with Topco since these
products are also part of Pepsi's Health and Wellness Philoso-
phy where the company focuses on "Promoting Healthy Kids
Lifestyles".
Recently, DDL has embarked on a "Healthy Eating"
schools programme they have been working along with the
Primary Schools talking to children about healthy lifestyles
and the importance of healthy eating. Children across the
country are being given an opportunity to try these products
as the "Healthy Eating" team moves across the country from
school to school emphasizing the need for Healthy Lifestyles.
