Competitiveness programme moves one step further
Chairman of the Private Sector Commission (PSC), Gerry Gouveia, has said that the council of the Support for Competitiveness Programme intends to work closer with the Director of the Programme Secretariat this year to move the agenda of the competitiveness strategy forward.
According to Gouveia, the competitiveness programme is working and this is where the public sector and civil society are at the level of the council.
“You have labour, you have other members of civil society, you have the private sector sitting on that council and the agenda is set by everybody.”
He added that some of the issues on the agenda are shipping, Rupununi development, corporate governance in Guyana and income tax reform. “Those are all things that are on the agenda of the competitiveness strategy which is engaging the attention of the council at the highest level.”
Gouveia noted that the council meets four times a year and between those meetings there are public/private sector dialogue groups that meet also.
