So said Lance Hinds, President of the Chamber, when he met with a delegation from Trinidad and Tobago recently. Chaguanas Mayor Gopaul Boodhan, Vijay Ramlal Rai, Head of the National Chutney Foundation of T&T and Surujdeo Mangaroo, PRO of the National Council of Indian Culture (NCIC), met with Hinds in Georgetown last week to discuss hosting World Chutney Soca Monarch (WCSM) on August 2 at the Guyana National Stadium.
Hinds said he was pleased to learn that Chaguanas had grown from a small town and is now one of T&T’s largest retail hubs.
He said the WCSM will be a big event that would attract a lot of potential investors and provide an ideal tourism opportunity for Guyana. Christine Gooding, project lead-manager of the WCSM, said the event should attract more than 30,000 people, including foreigners.
