Dr. Yesu Persaud

One of the country’s most prominent businessmen, Dr. Yesu Persaud, believes that the time has come for a change and for the country’s Constitution to be reformed.

The World Bank and A Changing World

 By David Jessop

Anticipations were high for the much-touted grand opening of the Marriott Hotel at Kingston, the first of its kind in these parts. It was supposed to be a major project initiated by the former administration and now being completed by the Donald Ramotar government.

Ahead of the May 11 general elections, it was expected to be a proud moment. But the expected spectacular event complete with pomp and fanfare fizzled yesterday, falling short of expectations.  Continue reading
