[www.inewsguyana.com] – President David Granger encouraged an eager group of young Guyanese students studying abroad to return home.

The Head of State, in an impassioned presentation to the students on December 28, sold them on the benefits of returning home to serve their country.

“We are going to move mountains to enable young Guyanese to come back and have a stake in their native land,” he said.

Speaking at the first international student networking event, which was organised by Minister of State, Joseph Harmon and Simona Broomes, who is daughter of Minister within the Ministry of Social Protection, Simona Broomes, the President said that the ‘good life’ in Guyana beckons to people who are entrepreneurial, adventurous and committed to this country.

According to a release from the Ministry of the Presidency, the President spoke of Guyana’s natural resources and mineral wealth and told the students, most of whom are visiting Guyana for the holidays, that they would be welcomed to return to Guyana to serve their country.

“We need people who are going to build roads, build aerodromes, and develop this country. I wouldn’t have been here had I not believed in this country. When we look at the prospects of Guyana, I believe that there is a future for every Guyanese… Guyana is the new frontier in the Caribbean. It is a land of hope and promise and we want to guarantee that promise to the next generation,” he said.

The President also took the time to autograph some of his publications on the request of some attendees.

Noting that many Guyanese have not had the opportunity to see the beauty of Guyana’s hinterland, the President took the opportunity to speak on the beauty of Guyana’s natural resources.

The Head of State added that as Guyana approaches its Jubilee Independence Anniversary, it is important that all Guyanese, at home and abroad come together to repair a nation, which was broken at birth, so that it can be positioned for growth and development.

The President assured the students that his administration will put systems in place to ensure that they can return to serve their country, once their studies would have been completed.

Also speaking on the occasion, Minister Harmon said the event was aimed at giving students, who live and study abroad, the opportunity to interact with the President and Ministers of Government, so that they can be informed of the plans the administration has for the young people and be encouraged to return home after their studies would have concluded.

Dem old PNC head not giving up the good life he talking about.He better get those from the PNC peoples militia to run country because they willing to say YES YES YES to the old PNC heads at all times.

  2. When is the old Retirees going to step aside and allowed the qualified youths to run this country?
    These old Retirees are hindrances to the development of the youths.
    What is the average age of the Ministers who are in the government?
    It is a shame to speak about youth must return to serve this country when the old people who are old retirees running the country.
