Guyana is on the cusp of great oil wealth development and wants everyone in the diaspora to return home to contribute to growing the economy.
Guyana is celebrating its historic oil discovery of half a billion barrels and Minister of Finance Winston Jordan wants oil and gas Guyanese professionals to return home to fill job openings.
Jordan said expatriates were welcome to return to their homeland and apply for these positions without any restrictions.
“I tell Guyanese to take a page out of the Jamaicans’ book, you don’t have to give any reason to come to a place where you were born, it does not matter where you live, this is your home,” emphasized Jordan, adding, that the country’s oil industry should be a special lure to come home.
He is excited that Guyanese citizens will enjoy its new wealth “will benefit from the cradle to the elderly”.
