Guyanese must often be inclined to think that their politicians are very tiresome. They are supposed to represent the electorate, but their views on how to do that can often take a quite distorted form. From the President downwards all are paid by the taxpayer, but when they will not even talk to each other how can they possibly argue they are disc

 We are disappointed at the Hon. Leader of the Opposition, Joseph Harmon.  The opposition group should be, too, but that is a matter for them and their internal deliberations.  The bigger problem and concern for all Guyanese is that there is neither harp nor formidable opposition in this country at this time.  With that as the s

Guyana's potential for socioeconomic development is so astonishing and dreamlike!
HOW Guyanese see themselves and their nation is an important element of moving this society forward to its potential, to really and in actuality achieve the kind of progress that is a real possibility in these times of promising growth and development. How many times before in its history Guyana stood on the doorstep of its development, this land s

Guyana holds a special place in China’s diplomatic history.
Guyana holds a special place in China’s diplomatic history. It opened diplomatic relations with China as far back as 1972, the first country in this region to do so and at a time when China was struggling to break the bonds of isolation. China has always been grateful and developed political relations with the PNC, adding to that which had been his
AFC unfit to lead
THE GAWU saw a Capitol News report in which AFC leader Mr Khemraj Ramjattan described the support by the Government of Guyana to GuySuCo as “…pouring good money in a wholly unprofitable project…”.

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.
