“We have been able to set a new paradigm for Guyana. We are going to position Guyana as an important global leader in three of the most challenging crises that the world face. That is food, energy, and climate. We have the credentials; we have the philosophy and the policies,” President Ali stressed during a recent interview with a Guyanese journalist in China.

Integrating all of Guyana in the development frame and advancement of our country are things that we are very, proud of,” Dr. Ali stated.

It is also investing in human development, modernisation and technological advancement of the country, and infrastructure expansion that will support the best possible deliverables and services to citizens.

“I think one of the very important aspects of the government over the last three years is that we have been able to centralise people at the core of what we do. All the action that we take is bringing people at the core and it’s not a hierarchical movement where someone is at the top and passing things down at the bottom. It’s a matrix approach to leadership, development, service… where the people are at the centre and a service that the government offers surrounds the people,” the president explained.
