“It was very exciting to say the least,” says the PhD candidate from the University of Mississippi.

Guyana needs an enlightened immigration policy – commentary

Guyana needs an enlightened immigration policy

Guyana needs to improve its immigration policies. Persons coming into Guyana do not feel welcome. They are made to feel that the country is doing them a favour by allowing them in. Guyana needs a friendly environment for its visitors.

The faces of our immigration officers are not very friendly. Sometimes they make you have second thoughts about coming to Guyana. But their job is difficult and the pay is poor, and therefore the service tends, generally, to be lousy.   Continue reading

Guyana’s Rain-forest and river

The rainforests are a powerhouse of diversity. They contain more than half of the animal and plant species on the planet. Many of the medicines that we use today are from plants in the rainforests. Food sources are to be found in the forests as well and we are reminded in the popular media that the rainforests are the ‘lungs of the world.’

This means that they store about 20 per cent of the world’s oxygen. But they also absorb a great portion of the man-made carbon dioxide emissions.    Continue reading
