Guyanese business magnate and retired Chairman of Demerara Distillers Limited, Dr. Yesu Persaud wants to see the new government be serious about its work and keep the promises that it would have made to the people of Guyana.
Dr. Persaud who has headed some of the most successful business operations in Guyana for decades told News Source during a Wednesday interview that the new government should also focus heavily on ensuring cohesiveness in the society.
He said “I want to see more cohesiveness and more togetherness and I want to see people being serious about what they are doing because unless they are serious, they would not be getting anywhere.”
The well-respected business executive told News Source that the APNU+AFC administration should ensure that it delivers on the promises that it has made.
“When you say something do it. Never make a promise unless you can fulfill it. That is what has chartered my course over the years”, he said.
Dr. Persaud was among the special invited guests at Wednesday’s opening of the 11th Parliament.
During that opening, President David Granger outlined his vision for his new government over the next five years. He spoke about embracing the business community and ensuring more togetherness across the country as he moves forward with his national unity plan.
The President has already hosted meetings with the Private Sector Commission and has briefed them on the efforts his government intends to employ to see a turnaround in the business climate in the country and the development of the nation’s economy.
