first_imgDirector of the Guyana Tourism Authority, Brian Mullis….Guyana earned $62.6 billion from tourism in 2018Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) on Wednesday reiterated previous calls for Government to grant more concessions for the tourism sector during its mid-year press conference.Early in June, The Tourism and Hospitality Association of Guyana (THAG) had lobbied Government to grant concessions, as it aimed to have tourism included in the export sector.GTA’s Director Brian Mullis told the media that the agency’s interested in advocating for tourism to be recognised in the export sector and should be granted tax concessions and incentives just as gold and rice exportations.“There are a number of tax concessions and incentives for travelling in tourism in the areas of ground transportation, accommodation, refurbishment, expansions and some for tour operators etc…however, recognising that tourism is an export sector, we’re looking for advocating for that formal recognition of the sector as an export sector in 2020 so that we can be afforded some of the tax concessions and incentives that other export sector have,” Mullis explained.Asked whether there are specific areas in mind when making these concessions request to Government, the Director highlighted those in transportation and accommodation, especially within the interior locations.“We want it to be possible for the sector to upgrade vehicles, particularly four by four vehicles, in the interior but also larger transit vehicles for larger groups, we want to see incentives for expanding existing lodging particularly in the interiors, refurbishing existing lodges as well and other recreational equipment,” he stated.In providing some reassurance to granting these requests, Business Minister Hemraj Rajkumar, on behalf of his caretaker Government, underscored that the Ministry is working on processing some concessions application for its investors.“One of the things we are requesting is for concessions that we can encourage the development of our tourist industry. Concessions for those persons who wish to bring in our country vehicles that would be used for tourism….we have received a few applications from persons which are being processed. The Ministry is supporting the development of tourism in our country and we will see as much as best to afford our investors the concessions they request,” Minister Rajkumar said.Nevertheless, Guyana has been growing significantly in terms of its tourism industry. Data provided by the Bureau of Statistics revealed that the country’s economy earned some $62.6 billion in 2018 from the tourism industry.Further, over the period of January to May, international arrivals have increased by 9.2 per cent and it is expected to reach 100 per cent growth by 2025, given the rapid and transformative nature of the sector.

Commuters stranded again as DHB connecting post breaks

first_img…Evening News video editor injured, bike damagedBy Lakhram BhagiratPersons using the Demerara Harbour Bridge were subjected to an unplanned closure, at approximately 15:30h on Tuesday when a connecting post broke off resulting in the integrity of the structure being compromised.Demerara Harbour Bridge General Manager Rawlston Adams said that a connecting post broke at span 31-32. The broken post would have seriously affected the integrity of the structure so it had to be replaced immediately.Adams, in an interview with Guyana Times, explained that the engineers would often use the retraction time to make minor repairs and change the damaged posts on the Bridge, but there was no indication that the particular post needed to be changed.Aggrey Halley following the incident“This one just broke and because of the severity of the breakage, we can’t delay it until tomorrow’s (today’s) retraction so we have to intervene immediately. These are metal structures and they can fail; they can show a crack and fail during normal operations when vehicles are transiting the Bridge,” he explained.He said that the repairs would take approximately one hour, but lamented the traffic build-up on the East and West Banks of the Demerara River.“That from experience would tell us that there would be a serious backup of traffic on the East Bank (Demerara) and on the West Side (West Bank Demerara), because this is the afternoon peak hour and we will do our best to ensure it is rectified as soon as possible,” Adams explained in an earlier interview.About 17:15h, the post was fully repaired and the Bridge opened to vehicular traffic. However, since the incident occurred around peak rush hour traffic, vehicles were backed up a long way and the congestion lasted until late evening.The Demerara Harbour Bridge“My life flashed before me”Meanwhile, Evening News Video Editor Aggrey Halley, who was on the Bridge at the time, said that his life flashed before his eyes when his motorcycle, CJ 1810, began tumbling down the high span on the DHB and came to a stop after it slammed into a canter truck, GPP 6619.“Around 3 pm (15:00h), I was heading east on the Bridge when a lorry was heading in the opposite direction. Because of the weight, the plate lifted up like about two feet and I was pitched from my bike and began to roll down the high span,” he explained.Demerara Harbour Bridge General Manager Rawlston AdamsThe traumatised man added that it all happened so quickly that all he could have done was try to move out of the way of oncoming traffic after he stopped tumbling down, to preserve his life. He further related that after he stopped tumbling, the bike continued skating and slammed into the canter truck damaging both vehicles.“There was no bridge personnel on site when this happened although there is a security hut there. It took them about 10-15 minutes to come to the site and all the while the Bridge was moving up and down causing the traffic to stop,” Halley explained.The father of one related that his motorcycle was purchased three months ago and was his only mode of transportation for his family. He added that he lived in a remote area of the Schoonord Housing Scheme on the West Bank of Demerara and transportation was quite difficult to access.Halley sustained several bruises about his body, his shirt was torn and he has a sprained right ankle, limiting his movements thus hindering his productivity. He says he is in tremendous pain.“I could have died there, because there was traffic on both sides and I was in the middle of the Bridge. I have a young child and all I could have thought about is my family and being safe. The Demerara Harbour Bridge need to be more proactive in ensuring the safety of their users,” Halley urged.Meanwhile, the General Manager of the DHB has scheduled a meeting with Halley for today.last_img read more
