Free and fair elections integral for credible investments – AmCham

first_imgThe American Chamber of Commerce in Guyana (AmCham) on Thursday evening hosted its inaugural Black Tie Recognition Gala, reflecting on their achievements throughout the year and their plans for 2020.AmCham President Zulfikar AliPresident of AmCham Guyana, Zulfikar Ali expressed that the organisation will remain committed to partnering with other agencies to ensure free and fair elections at the upcoming March 2, 2020, polls. This is indeed important, he noted, in building investors’ confidence in the local markets.Along with that, the US embassy has come on board with the Chamber to provide training and other necessities at that time.“Our organisation is committed to working with other Private Sector organisations, international partners and members of the diplomatic community to promote for free and fair elections, the maintenance of the rule of law and the respect of Guyana’s Constitution – all of which are integral and critical for the growth of business, the attraction of credible investment and investors; and the general wellbeing of all Guyanese,” Ali expressed while addressing the gathering at the Marriott Hotel, Georgetown.He added that he knows that “we all share our freedoms and liberty. It is what drives nation-building and entrepreneurship. These should not be taken for granted. AmCham in collaboration with the US embassy in Guyana will provide training for journalists and elections reporting, which is critical during these times.”Reflecting on 2019, he said that through the support of local and foreign companies, they were able to achieve more than the intended target.“What is unique about the support is that it came from both international as well as local companies…At AmCham Guyana, we will be using this time to plan for the year ahead since we are very pleased that we have exceeded our expectations and met our targets for 2019. 2020 promises to be an exciting year not only for AmCham but for the people of Guyana.”Meanwhile, US Ambassador Sarah-Ann Lynch in her address, indicated that business should also entail giving back to communities.“To have the name America in your title has certain advantages but it also comes with certain responsibilities. You need to represent what is best about America in both how you do business and also how you live in your community. American values, like Guyanese values, include the power of giving to make communities better,” the diplomat asserted.AmCham Guyana is a voluntary, non-profit, membership organisation committed to promoting and enhancing commercial relations between the United States and Guyana. The Chamber has grown since its establishment in 2018, with just under 100 members in such a short span of time.AmCham said its purpose is to “promote America-Guyana bilateral trade opportunities and activities; to improve market access for America-Guyana goods and services; to provide an economic, social, and policy platform for its members; to encourage networking and build business connections, among others.last_img read more

Section 35. Existing aboriginal treaty rights.”Bellegarde made the comments to the Canadian Press.- Advertisement -He also says it goes completely against Justin Trudeau’s promise to have a better relationship with First Nations.  He says the project would involve flooding a valley where indigenous people have lived, hunted, trapped, fished and gathered medicines.He says that the relationship needs to be healthy and respectful but that is not the case with the Site C dam.“There’s indigenous peoples buried throughout that valley so you’re disrespecting inherent rights, you’re disrespecting treaty rights.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Watford star Troy Deeney to show old prison mates how far he’s come at Manchester United match

first_img The striker served three months of a 10-month prison sentence in 2012 Troy Deeney has invited six former prison mates to Vicarage Road on Saturday to watch him captain Watford against Manchester United.The striker served three months of a 10-month prison sentence in 2012 after admitting a charge of affray following a violent brawl in his home town of Birmingham which left four students injured.At what would have been the low point of his career, Deeney told his fellow prisoners that he would rebuild his life and for the first time reach the Premier League, even when there were few guarantees he would play again as a professional.Given that so many would regard captaining a team against United as the pinnacle, he has invited those friends to witness his proud moment, both to remind them of what he once told them and to say thank you to those who gave him the belief he required.“I’ve got people coming down from there, my cellmates,” said Deeney.“Six [friends].“I told them it’d all come true: I do my best work when people doubt me the most.“Friends [from that side of my life]. People that helped me get through and helped me get motivated when I didn’t really want to.“I knew what I was going to do [in succeeding as a professional footballer]. I can’t say whether a team’s gonna buy me or this team’s gonna keep me or we’re going to do this, [but] I know what I was going to do from that moment.“I have [proved people wrong] all my life. When people write me off that’s when I perform my best.“Just knowing that it ain’t gonna happen again [a return to prison]. No matter what, people can push my buttons, people can push me to limits, it’s not going to happen again, so… Most people talk, so why get angry about it? Just enjoy.”Deeney also recognises that, though he was only appointed in the summer, he also owes Quique Sanchez Flores.The Spaniard became Watford’s fifth manager in a year when he was appointed but he has since stabilised them and, while retaining Deeney, impressively developed a new-look team that ahead of hosting United are 11th in the Premier League after 12 games.“He’s the best I’ve worked with, and I’m not just saying that because we’re doing well at the moment. I think the overall package, he’s very good,” Deeney said.“Just how he is as a person. I am not going to say it is nothing to do with his managerial skills because that would feed into his managerial skills, but he is so good as a person.“He can have serious conversations with you and then he can have a laugh and a joke with you – but you always know he is the boss.“It is good to have a conversation with him. But he keeps you so close that you still feel like you would do anything for him.“He can also go ‘you’re not doing that right or you need to do whatever extra’ and you know he is the boss so that is probably the best thing about him.” 1last_img read more
