[www.inewsguyana.com] – Private Sector Commission (PSC) members were thrown into a state of shock this morning (Sunday, April 27) upon learning of the death of its Chairman, Ronald Webster.
Former Chairman, Ramesh Dookhoo confirmed to iNews (www.inewsguyana.com) that Webster lost his battle to cancer at the Balwant Singh Hospital early Sunday morning.
According to Mr Dookhoo, the Chairman underwent a surgery in Trinidad and Tobago recently and was medevac to Guyana on Saturday night for further treatment.
Mr Dookhoo noted that Webster’s death is a great loss to the Private Sector, since much progress was achieved under his leadership.
“He had a very distinguished Private Sector career. A lot was achieved under his chairmanship including tax reform measures. He died not having seen a resolution to the many issues being faced in our Parliament today and that is very sad,” Mr Dookhoo said.
Webster once served as the President of the Guyana Manufacturers’ Association.
