Sabga: Diaspora 'sleeping giant'

Chairman Emeritus of the ANSA McAL Group of Companies, Dr. Anthony N. Sabga says this country has a “sleeping giant” in the Diaspora as far as business and economic possibilities go, but he stressed that incentives and tax relief need to be strengthened as part of the encouragement package for people to return.

Dr. Sabga said that he has seen Guyanese in the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States who could be encouraged to return home and invest provided there is a “safe and welcoming environment”. He posited that Guyana could reach its full potential if persons in the Diaspora with the expertise return home and contribute to this country’s development.
