By Sase SinghSase Singh Why is India growing so fast; why not Guyana?How is India so poor given the fact that its people as a collective have so much knowledge?  Maybe this is why India is growing so fast because it already has what it take to be richer – a well-diversified collection and quantum of highly knowledgeable human beings.  Forget natural resources; with the right human being in your country, anything is possible and Singapore is a live example. Guyana’s biggest problem is the size and quality of our population at home.  Yet we see headlines in 2015 illustrating how we are rejecting human beings trying to migrate to Guyana – simply injudicious. Guyana needs more people but yet the Immigration Department does not have a policy of accommodating those with talent into the country through a similar program to what Canada has; self-sponsorship.  Should we be rejecting people with degrees or even technical diplomas from Guyana?But the core point remains, why has India grown by 7.3 percent in 2014 and not Guyana?  Why has Sri Lanka grown by 7.1 percent in 2014 and not Guyana?  Anyone who has visited India or Sri Lanka would be fortunate to see countries that are busy at upskilling their people and at work – two big workshops.  Mind you,China Jerseys Cheap, these countries do not have a shortage of political problems.  Actually they have more than their fair share of political scandals and challenges,Wholesale Stitched Jerseys, but they have a sufficiently committed and independent private sector and professional public service that is devoted to the transformation of the nation in spite of the shortcomings of their politicians.GREAT START – the Public Service Staff CollegeThe Granger / Nagamootoo administration has started off with one great objective – the Public Service Staff College that can serve as the reservoir of young, well trained minds focused at delivering public services to the nation more efficiently without fear or favour for any politician.  It makes absolutely no common sense to have a great crop of graduates in 3 years’ time but their promotion is based on their godfather being a politicians.  All public officers should be protected from vindictive politicians, once they are following the law, once they follow clearly outlined public policies and once they follow written legal instructions. The sensible model remains – the politicians formulate the policy in writing and the professional public servants execute those written policies; simple.Unfortunately these clear lines of demarcations were muddied under the Jagdeo / Ramotar terms with an army of contracted employees who owed their very existence to their political godfathers.  This unprofessional development severely wounded the professional public service.  In 2014 the PPP paid contracted employees G$9.4 billion but I was surprised that in the 2015 Budget there was an assigned amount of G$10.8 billion for contract employees with no valid explanation from the current coalition Government. This is an increase for contracted employees of some G$1.4 billion. Troubling indeed!But as we reform the public service, we have to urgently appoint the Public Service Appellant Tribunal.  This is not a game. Since 2004, this Appellant Tribunal was devoured and deflowered by the Jagdeo / Ramotar Team.  Setting up this Tribunal will be an important milestone in professionalizing the public service and I am asking the workers’ union to hold the coalition government to their promise.  No time for hypocrisy Mr. Patrick Yarde, it is time to stand up for the workers and demand this Tribunal.WHAT CAN WE DO?The real puzzle in us growing as a country is productivity especially human productivity and divergence of knowledge.  The real process of economic growth means changing what you make and changing how you make them.  Take Guyana for instance – in 1966 at independence,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, Guyana’s GDP per capita was very similar to Singapore and Barbados.  We were all basically primary producers of products.  In 1966, Singapore exported mainly lightly processed products like sawn lumber, natural rubber, basic textile fabrics, preserved fruits, unbleached cotton, raw seafoods, raw hemp and so on.  Today Singapore exports are dominated by electronic integrated circuits, automatic data processing machinery,Cheap Jerseys China, refined petroleum products (although they have not one drop of oil), high end pharmaceutical products, gold jewelry (with no gold mines),Jerseys From China, polymers,Wholesale China Jerseys, packaged food (with no food nation is to add capabilities to our current talent pool so that as a nation, we can be ready for all new investors who will come to Guyana in the droves once we get a handle of this crime wave.  Time for “MR BAD MAN” to bad up on the criminals because that great program (gun amnesty) is now over.  Time for action!Next time we shall be continuing our conversation by on how to best cause the trickle down of this economic growth to the masses with a view of driving the youth unemployment rate down.([email protected])
