The Governing Board and Senior Management of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) examined a number of priority areas for 2016 when they met at Lake Mainstay Resort on the Essequibo Coast for a three-day retreat.
The event, which was aimed at deciding on the strategic direction of the organisation, also examined and agreed on ways to optimize revenue collection, improve trade facilitation and protect tax payers data. In addition, the retreat addressed the culture of the organization as part of its effort to improve relations with tax payers and align resources with its priorities.
The senior members of the organization led by Ms. Ingrid Griffith, Commissioner General (ag), were in attendance along with the Chairman, Mr. Rawle Lucas and other directors of the board, including Ms. Sonia Roopnauth and Mr. Jermaine Grant.
Joining the team was First Vice-President of the Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU), Mr. Mortimer Livan, who made a presentation on the history and role of the Union. This presentation followed a recent sensitization exercise that was held with the staff of the GRA.
