The most significant benefit that can be derived from the sustenance of partnerships is the evolution of the newly-acclaimed international business concept called “creation of clusters” that can result in the maximisation of benefits for associated sectors.This is according to Clinton Williams, President of Guyana Manufacturers and Services Association (GMSA), who was delivering remarks at the launching of Guyana’s Fourth International Building Expo 2013, Friday evening at the Princess International Hotel, Providence.GMSA President Clinton WilliamsAccording to Williams, Building Expo is a laudable trade and investment promotion event that is one of the main ingredients of any strategy designed to stimulate the economic development and growth of Guyana.He said that the exposition’s theme “Consolidating Partnerships for Sustainable Development” is timely and emphasises examples of how local and foreign companies could collaborate through optimising local resources and cooperation of stakeholders.“The fact that the event has gained sufficient momentum to attract both regional and international participation is testimony of the significant contribution this annual building expo is making towards the development of the entire engineering and construction sector.”Williams related that GMSA’s mission aims to initiate, advocate and promote programmes and policies for the development and growth of the manufacturing and services sector of which the building sector is integral.According to the GMSA president, over the past five years Guyana’s growth recorded in excess of five percent, with the engineering and construction sector playing a pivotal part. However, he believes that the sector’s contribution to the economy could substantially increase if local resources such as sand, clay, wood and iron are maximised.In addition, interventions of all stakeholders including financial institutions, building contractors, tertiary and vocational educational institutions and regulatory agencies should be optimised in order to minimise cost and maximise output. This would result in the attraction of investments, creation of employment and increased export earnings, he said.Williams, who has been in business for decades, said that in today’s world of business “partnership is the name of the game” and posed several endearing challenges to stakeholders present at the event.He noted that there needs to be a broad-based sensitisation programme within the construction industry, focusing primarily on the abundant availability of lesser known species of wood. This would enable the optimal use of everything that comes from the forest.“The lesser known species of hardwood are just as viable as the traditional Greenheart and Purple Heart for the construction of wharves, bridges, pilings and houses, ” he added.Williams also stated that, “This initiative, however, requires buy-in by both the private and public sectors. Hence there is need for early implementation of mandatory changes to the national standards for material specification across the construction sector.”While, encouraging and promoting partnerships between local and foreign entrepreneurs, he emphasised that Guyana can produce and export peeled and sliced veneer (that which is used to make plywood). He added that the capacity exists to expand the production of plywood using low cost hi-tech machinery that could be bought from Third World countries.“These investments could be easily justified as the basis for substantial demand in both local and foreign markets, ” he said.Another area that could be explored is production of cement locally. Williams said that the existing cement-bagging plants could commence cement production in Guyana, starting with the importation of the stone used to make cement.Williams encouraged that even though ceramic products are made locally there should be partnerships to ensure the creation of a bona fide ceramic industry in Guyana.“I know ceramic products are being produced, but I am talking about a specific bona fide ceramic industry producing bricks and tiles, sanitary ware, tableware artifacts and craft for domestic use and export. We have all the ingredients to do it, ” he stated.According to Williams, Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping, another industry that could benefit from cluster groups is forestry. He related that in the timber industry stakeholders should work collectively with the primary objective of reducing transportation cost, which is usually costly to move felled timber to its destination.He noted that stronger partnerships could be developed between Government and financial institutions through the utilisation of excess liquidity in the financial system by comprehensive and innovative schemes, specifically geared for the construction sector. This can stimulate local and foreign investors.Williams emphasised that tremendous benefits would accrue from closer participation of research institutions such as Institute of Applied Science and Technology, University of Guyana; and resource-based agencies like Guyana Geology and Mines Commission and the Guyana Forestry Commission.“We should seek partnerships among manufacturers, contractors and local foundry operators particularly in the areas of municipalities for the construction of manhole frames and covers, and fire hydrants that would be made in Guyana, reducing cost, ” Williams said.

…Parliament bound to make payments by Ministerial Order  Despite the cries, protestations and claims that the opposition will not be taking a salary increase, all members of the political opposition—the Peoples’ Progressive Party (PPP) – will in fact be paid, the increases whenParliament BuildingParliament pays its salaries this month.Kaieteur News consulted a senior official at Parliament Buildings—the authority that is responsible for making salary payments to Members of Parliament—and was told that the body is bound to make the payments taking into account the Ministerial Order that authorized the increases.Speaking to this publication on the condition of anonymity, it was explained that under the relevant legislation governing the salaries of a Minister and other Members of Parliament, the subject Minister is permitted to making the Order for the increase in salaries.It was explained to this publication that when Parliament meets tomorrow, the Order will be laid in the House, but this is only a formality since the Order has already been brought into force by virtue of its publication in the Official Gazette.The Parliament will be making the payments this month, in keeping with the Ministerial Order, signed and Gazetted by Minister of State, Joseph Harmon.The salary increases were published in the Official Gazette of September 25.This publication was told that opposition Members of Parliament simply cannot say they will not be accepting an increase in salary and that Parliament will abide with its wishes.The Parliament is bound to act in accordance with the Ministerial Order, dictating that increases be paid to each member of the Executive and Legislature ranging from as little as five per cent to 50 per cent.This publication was told that there is a mechanism in place to challenge the salary increases.The Standing Orders of the Parliament do provide for a motion to be tabled to challenge the increases.This publication was told however, that in order to challenge the Ministerial Order, it will first have to be laid after which any member of the assembly will have 21 days within which to move a motion to either amend the Order or annul it altogether.The motion if successfully tabled and approved will still have to be debated and voted on in the National Assembly.The coalition A Partnership for National Unity plus Alliance For Change (APNU AFC) Government commands 33 of the 65 seats in the National Assembly with the PPP holding 32.The PPP has signaled its intention to challenge the salary increase by way of a motion but given the voting strength of the Government, Jerseys NFL Wholesale, its successful passage is unlikely.Ever since the Gazetting of the Ministerial Order was made public, there has been much public debate over the salary increases leading the opposition PPP to publicly declare that its MPs would not be taking the increase.The PPP, yesterday, by way of a public missive indicated that its members have in fact received their pay slip from the Parliament Office for the month of October 2015 which indicates that they have been paid salary increases.The PPP is adamant that the payments were made notwithstanding the fact the Leader of the Opposition, Bharrat Jagdeo, stated publicly nearly two weeks ago that they will not be accepting this increase in their salaries.The party believes that the Ministerial Order is not in force since it has not been tabled in the House as yet.The PPP said that Government, by hastily paying these increases in salaries to themselves, is clearly subverting the role of the National Assembly, violating the Standing Orders and contravening the law.“All of this is designed to defeat the PPP/C’s efforts to challenge these unconscionable salary increases in the National Assembly…The decision to pay themselves these salary increases was made in similarly clandestine circumstances, ” the PPP said.The party insists that it will be pursuing every other available avenue to annul and reverse “these reprehensible salary increases which we now realize have been paid in violation of the law and Parliamentary norms and practices.”Finance Minister Winston Jordan had, in explaining the rationale behind the increase, spoken to resolving the anomalies that existed, catering for the increased ministerial workload and catering to the posts of Vice Presidents.The Finance Minister insisted that the salary increases were necessary and justifiable.He said, “There are about 13 senior ministers who got the 50 percent increases.”
