  1. What is the projected cost per lb. There has to be a plan?
    Question for Hanomanji, What are the interventions to bring cost down, certainly not paying you abt 3m per month and paul another $2m.
    GAWU and Ramsammy said it was wrong to fire Raj Singh welll i wonder if they knew he was getting 5m$ per month, for no skills what so ever.
    I wish Guysuco well but performance of this industry i am not counting on any deep changes not with Hanoman and Paul Bhim and Sangster. Dinosaurs in the modern world.
