Stakeholders, the membership of the Essequibo Technical Institute, along with members of the Essequibo Chamber of Commerce and Industry, met over dinner, Thursday night, to air proposals and suggestions to resuscitate the dormant Essequibo Chamber
Also present at the dinner were President of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce, Komal Ramnauth; Captain Gerald Gouveia; Region Two chairman, Alli Baksh; former member of the ECCI, Samuel Arjune, and principal of the Essequibo Technical Institute, Michael Turner.
Baksh called for members of the Essequibo Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ECCI) to collaborate in their approach to work with the Region Two administration.
Baksh also reminded the gathering that the region has a wealth of natural resources. He called on stakeholders for capitalisation of the full utilisation of those natural products.
“I urge the major stakeholders to meet regularly, and to use what you have to influence the policy holders.”
Tasked with delivering the featured address, Gouveia said that the private sector is an important body in any country. He stressed that the private sector body was once alienated from the Government.
Gouveia said that it was not an easy task to building cohesion with a Government. He urged the gathering not to allow any politician to alienate the private sector.
The Essequibo Chamber of Commerce and Industry was established in 2002.The NGO’s current president is Ravi Deoshankar Mohan.
Current plans on the body’s agenda include persuading the authorities to have the Supenaam stelling up and running for all, especially farmers.
The body also intends to pursue the introduction of a notary public at the Registry of Deeds at Suddie, Doesankar said.
The NGO aims to foresee the regularisation of both car parks and markets, for the benefit of the people of Region Two. (Yannason Duncan)
