Guyana’s Private Sector Commission (PSC) on Thursday elected a new Chairman and Executive body at its Annual General Meeting held at the Marriott Hotel in Georgetown.
OilNOW spoke with the newly elected Chairman, Desmond Sears, who said a key area of focus for him will be to double the PSC’s efforts in trying to forge a healthier and more productive relationship between the Guyana government and the main Opposition Party.
“I want to look at dialogue. We should have collaboration between the government and the political opposition. It is important because as much as we talk about the oil discoveries and how Guyana will grow, we truly need all partners to be on board if this is to be realised,” he told OilNOW.
Mr. Sears said to further this type of dialogue and collaboration between the main political parties is his passion and will be treated as a top priority. “As a Guyanese I really want to make sure that all of us benefit. There is no room for talk now; it’s action. One of my main roles I think is to see if I can get those parties together,” he said.
The newly elected Executive comprises Deodat Indar, Vice-Chairman, Komal Singh, Secretary and Zulifkar Ali, Treasurer.
