Very proud of Guyana and her esteemed young President

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but I am so heart-bustlingly proud of the Government of the Republic of Guyana and of her esteemed President, Mohamed Irfaan Ali, who over the past few days, has shown the entire world that he is made of very fine annealed steel.

If a picture paints a thousand words, the photographs from the Energy Conference have written a tome. A biography of a man whose journey is only in its infancy and who, with his steadfast and brilliant partner at his side, may yet help change this tired old world of ours.
Guyana is in very capable hands as she lifts off and begins to soar and I am tremendously glad to have lived to see this day for which I prayed for so very many years.
Those with stones and other projectiles, please form an orderly queue and wait your collective and individual turns.
No pushing and shoving, please. You’re in the new 592 area code now.

Guyana Diaspora Forum

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK.  Our Blog and Newsletter  would not only carry  articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections.

It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana.  This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000.  Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s.  The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating.  We hope this changes, and soon.

Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren.  The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly.  This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country.  Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.

This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines.  As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
