– GrangerPresident David Granger has responded to Leader of the Opposition Bharrat Jagdeo, Air Max 90 Vendita Online, who has criticized the Government for having no clear climate change policy and for sending someone to the United Nations (UN) climate change summit who does not understand the concept.Guyana’s representative is Minister of Governance, Raphael Trotman; but his selection has been disparaged by Jagdeo. In a press conference on Saturday, he had described Trotman as having a “vague understanding” of climate change concepts and not making his position known.Granger (presently on the island of Malta for the commonwealth summit) called Jagdeo’s comments misplaced, unfair and unhelpful. He noted that Guyana has challenges and if Guyana presents a united front, the national interests would be better served.Granger also declared that there is a conceptual difference to environmental management than the previous People’s Progressive Party (PPP) administration. He took Jagdeo to task, noting that to “attack” a representative of the Government was not a behavior expected from a former Head of State.“If he has a strong view, we can meet, sit down and discuss it, ” Granger said. “We are an inclusive government and we are prepared to sit down and benefit from his experience.”Former Head of State, Wholesale Authentic Jerseys, Bharrat JagdeoPresident David Granger“But to stay afar off and start to attack a representative of the present Government is not the behavior we expect of a former Head of State. We are not at war with the PPP. We were the ones who held out a hand of friendship and I would welcome Jagdeo sitting down and giving us the sort of brief that I feel the new government is entitled to.”Expanding on how the Government’s approach was different from the PPP’s, Dortmund Trikot 2018/19, the Head of State said that the modified policy focuses on the development of a green economy, which covers areas beyond just the Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS).“Many people got the impression that the whole idea, Manchester United Fan Shop UK, or a large part of the motivation under the previous administration, was simply to get funds, ” he said.“The result is that many people did not really understand how the strategy would work for them.  So it is partly a question of public information (and) partly a question of considering climate change in a holistic way.”“We have to ensure that there is a strategy for developing a truly green economy.  The previous administration never even used the word green economy.  It was just LCDS and funds.  That is all it was.  But now we are talking about the real green economy of which LCDS will be part.  We are the first people to speak about that.”Touting a vision of overall ecological and environmental management, the President said that climate change is not a money-making venture.“It is not a device to get money from one country and simply transfer it.  It is a means of transforming the economy.  It is not a transfer of funds.  It is a whole conceptual difference we are talking about”, cheap nfl jerseys china, he said.At his press conference on Saturday, Cheap Jerseys Wholesale, Jagdeo had expressed the hope that Granger would attend the conference, since heads of state are given a platform to speak ahead of mere government Ministers.However, Granger has indicated that he will not be attending the summit since he needs to focus on domestic issues. He nevertheless indicated that Guyana will be well represented.“I would have liked to go to Paris but it is difficult to spend that amount of time out of the country right now.  There are things at home that need my attention.  I had to make a decision. It was a difficult decision but I do believe that it is in the national interest”, Maglia Juve 2018/19, Granger said.The draft Climate Resilience Strategy and Action Plan (CRSAP) has been released by Government, outlining its strategy. The document comes at a time when Guyana is slated to feature at the United Nations (UN) climate change summit, which runs from today until December 11th in Paris, France.

By Keeran DannyThe delayed East Bank Demerara Public Road four-lane expansion project is being scrutinised by the Audit Office. The findings and recommendations will be highlighted in the Auditor General’s 2012 Report.The contracts for the three Lots beginning from Providence to Diamond Housing Scheme entrance were awarded to Dipcon Engineering Services Ltd, GEICO Construction Company in association with General Earth Movers, and BK International.They were signed on October 3, 2011 with a duration of 18 months. Delays to the project, particularly Lot Three, Cheap NFL Jerseys, from Diamond ‘high bridge’ to Diamond Housing Scheme entrance which was stalled for several months, were blamed on poor weather conditions and existing utilities. The project is now expected to conclude early next year.A section of the EBD Public Road four-lane expansion projectObservers believe the pace of the project could have hastened if adequate resources – human and machinery – were dedicated to this major project. A Partnership for National Unity (APNU)’s Parliamentarian, Joseph Harmon, had expressed concern that the contractor, Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping, BK International, responsible for Lot Three, is “somewhat overwhelmed” with projects.However, BK International in a press statement had distanced itself from the delay in East Bank Demerara road project and is blaming utilities and other elements involved.According to a source, BK International is engaged in two other projects that are also delayed: building the head regulator for the northern relief channel on the Hope Canal; and widening a section of Timehri Public Road into a four-lane thoroughfare. Even with these outstanding projects, the company recently won the bids for two sea defence projects in Essequibo.However, BK International is not the only company with more than one large project, that is executing works on the East Bank project. Dipcon Engineering Services Ltd is also executing works in more than one lot on the East Coast Demerara road-widening project.It is hoped the real reasons for the delays may be revealed in the Auditor General’s Report, Discount NFL Jerseys, which is also zeroing in on other large Government projects that required extension such as the East Coast Demerara Public Road four-lane.According to Auditor General Deodat Sharma, Camiseta Atletico De Madrid 2018, contractors may pass the deadline date for works owing to poor management of technical staff and labourers, shortage of building materials, limited equipment, poor weather conditions, and over-tendering for projects.Sharma said the Audit Office always requests the start and end dates for projects, since it was observed that some contractors over-tender for projects and cannot conclude them timely. He believes persons in Regional Tender Boards and the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board need to take this into account whenever they are evaluating bids.Sharma said that the lowest bid does not necessarily guarantee the awarding of a contract and this should come out in the evaluation process. He explained that during this stage the contractor’s competence and capacity to execute projects should be taken into consideration.He said in the case of the East Bank and East Coast Demerara Public Road widening, the projects were divided into lots, owing to their magnitude. He said only contractors with large fleets of equipment could have qualified.The Audit Office is looking closely at these projects for numerous reasons, including delays and fraud allegations that tainted Lot One of the East Coast Demerara Public Road four-lane expansion.According to Sharma, Jerseys From China, sometimes whenever staff members of the Audit Office review certain projects it is observed that the real reasons for the delays are not reported. He strongly believes that proper monitoring of these projects is required if they are to be completed promptly.Whilst recommending the strengthening of contract law to include stiffer penalties, Discount NFL Jerseys, other than the payment of liquidated damages, he said it all boils down to proper supervision. The consultancy firm that is responsible for supervising the project should be just as responsible as the contractor for the timely conclusion of the project.However, these delays have a cost to the economy and progression of Guyana.According to APNU Member of Parliament, Carl Greenidge, a contract that is delayed has a number of costs to the economy. He pointed to two: the loss of money and reduced benefits to society.Greenidge said the money engaged in the delayed project could have either been in the bank gaining interest or expended into another worthwhile venture. Using the assumption that money has cash value, he said money earns income.He added that most large Government contracts are funded by loans and despite the project may take awhile to finish the job, it still has to repay interest on the money borrowed to the lending institution.On the social aspect, he said if the project were intended to improve the transportation network and it takes awhile to conclude, Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping, then the people would have been in discomfort and lost productive hours.
