APNU REACHES OUT TO THE GUYANESE DIASPORA
APNU is aware that Guyanese living overseas exceed 800,000. APNU also aware that the expertise required to implement our Master Plan for development is not available in Guyana and must be sourced from overseas. Unlike the PPPC administration, APNU will not allow political patronage be the guiding principle for employment in government. While comprehensive programs would be undertaken to ensure that local Guyanese are trained and retrained to meet the needs of our Master Plan for implementation, APNU will reach out to Guyanese across the globe to participate in Guyana’s future development. It is no secret that overseas Guyanese has made significant contributions to the economic development of other nations. These Guyanese have been excluded by the PPPC government because the PPPC lacks the foresight to acknowledge that skilled Guyanese across the world over represents a critical resource to Guyana’s future development. APNU will aggressively pursue talented Guyanese across the world to come home and assist in Guyana’s development with remuneration to match global pay scales.
CURRENT ISSUES WHY THE GUYANESE DIASPORA STAY AWAY FROM GUYANA
1) HIGH AIRFARES AND HARASSMENT WHEN IN-TRANSIT AT SOME CARIBBEAN AIRPORTS
APNU is well aware that high airfares and few direct flights hinder overseas Guyanese from visiting Guyana (home). The reason for high airfares is the exclusion of major North American and European airlines from flying into Timehri airport because of the corrupt edicts of the PPPC regime. Overseas Guyanese also complain about the lack of direct flights to Guyana –a real inconvenience for older Guyanese in the diaspora. Many Guyanese have been targeted for harassment at Caribbean airports during layovers. APNU also is aware that the high cost of airline tickets in and out of Guyana increases the cost of doing business in Guyana, and this results in higher prices for goods and services for all Guyanese. An APNU government will relentlessly find solutions to these problems and invite many competing airlines so prices will be lowered and service more efficient and reliable. APNU will put an end to the mistreatment of out people who are in-transit passengers at foreign airports.
2) HIGH CRIME
The decay of Public Safety under the PPPC administration has been well documented. Overseas Guyanese are fearful of returning home due to the explosion of criminal activity. The APNU coalition will immediately re-engineer Guyana’s public safety institutions. We will seek instant assistance from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, the European Union and other countries to bring an abrupt end to Guyana’s “Crime Wave”. APNU will seek to recruit the best men and women to protect our citizens. Our new recruits will undergo intense training by seasoned law enforcement instructors (local and foreign) who are well versed in new techniques relevant to the crimes committed in Guyana. APNU will bring an immediate end to extra-judicial killings where law enforcement personnel have become Judge, Jury and Executioner. Extra Judicial killings is a barbaric method of law enforcement in countries ruled by fascists. The murder of suspects will not stand in an APNU administration. Under an APNU coalition government , overseas Guyanese can visit without fear of becoming the victims of crime.
BE A PART GUYANA’S CHANGE
Change in Guyana will not happen overnight, but Guyanese in the Diaspora can assist to make this change for the better faster. APNU welcomes all Guyanese in the Diaspora to join our relentless pursuit for change in Guyana. First we have to get your help to vote the PPPC out of power. Then we invite you to come home and join our team as we re-engineer Guyana to an emerging nation –to global standards. Without Guyanese living overseas, the rebuilding task will be much more difficult. APNU is committed to reverse the negative direction of Guyana through CHANGE, RENEWAL and YOU –the Guyanese Diaspora.
