During his feature address to mark the unveiling of the Rose Hall Martyrs’ Memorial in Canje, Berbice on Thursday, March 13, the President said, “Stand with me and together we will overcome the difficulties, and take the country to greater heights”.

According to the Government Information Agency, the President said, “We will work hard with the workers with the management of the industry to make sure that the fortunes of the industry improve, and GuySuCo once again takes its place as the major industry in Guyana.”

In recent days, the industry came in for heavy criticism from the political opposition, which is urging for the industry to reduce sugar production and to go into the business of producing ethanol and aquaculture.




  1. first, remove the entire management team, for they are high-salaried friends of the Govt who are only interested in theirs’ status. 2. installed a manager and supervisors, all selected from amongst the workers. 3.let all n sundries know that the survival of the estate depends upon them. 4. let contribution from the state copper be on a needs basis and not political. Rest assure problem will be solved.
