what is your definition of " shared Governance .
  Any form of Shared Governance-- where decisions are arrived at by discussions and consensus will immediately take away this current perception that only one group has all the answers and authority and that every decision is predicated by the assumption of how 'my voting support group can benefit' rather than the Country as a whole becoming better
This is the only justification for "Shared Governance
This is the only justification for "Shared Governance":Two race groups. One group numerically (slightly) larger than the other. Each group has its own race-based party. Almost down to the last person everyone votes race. In such a setup, the larger group will always win. The smaller race group will be permanently cut off from executive power. How d

Release of Payara contract/licence is the hallmark of transparency and accountability
It is refreshing to be a Guyanese currently noting the groundbreaking developments within the oil-and-gas sector which will catapult Guyana to economic stardom in the next few years. Equally significant is the release of the recently signed contract/licence between the Government of Guyana and ExxonMobil, to further the development of the Payara of

Sugar cannot be analysed only in terms of cost-benefit, but also on its economic and social impacts
By Dr Tara Singh Guyana’s Minister of Agriculture, Hon Zulfikar Mustapha, recently announced the reopening of three sugar estates: Enmore, Rose Hall and Skeldon, that were closed, along with Wales, by the PNCR Government within one year of their accession to power in May 2015; despite the Government’s CoI recommending that no estate should be close
Exxon is saddling the Guyanese people with hundreds of millions of US dollars in PRE-CONTRACT COSTS
Exxon is saddling the Guyanese people with hundreds of millions of US dollars in PRE-CONTRACT COSTS. Even before, Guyana earned a single dollar from the company’s operations, it was billed US$460 for pre-contract costs up to 2015 and another US$500M for the period between 2015 and 2017, making a grand total of US$960M. To add insult to injury, no G

Maximum amount of coffee ever produced in Guyana was just under 1,200 tonnes over 100 years ago
GEORGE Hanneman Bennett in his book, “An Illustrated History of British Guiana,” wrote that coffee was cultivated in the colony since 1721 after it was introduced from what is now Suriname. Inland and coastland plantations were laid out by the Dutch, where it was often cultivated alongside sugar, indigo, and cocoa. The coffee grown in the Pomeroon

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.
