Local businesses heading to Scotland to foster oil relations

first_imgCome November, a delegation from local businesses who are members of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) will be heading to the oil city of Aberdeen, Scotland in the United Kingdom in a quest to develop business relations in the area of oil and gas.This was announced on Thursday by GCCI President Deodat Indar during a press conference held at the entity’s Waterloo Street, Georgetown head office.The trade mission is expected to begin on November 25 and wind down on November 30. The GCCI intends to have this be the first of many visits to the UK with the same focus.According to Indar, this remarkable initiative will help businesses to spring into other avenues to bring about growth in a feasible manner.“If one company in Guyana had to go up there (to Scotland and) sort out a partner (and) evaluate that partner, it would take a long and hard process and it will cost that company a lot of money and these missions are there to ease out all of that and make that, to some extent, not needed,” he said.The Head of the Private Sector organisation also noted how expectant he was of agreements being signed during that visit to bridge the gap between the countries.GCCI Vice President Nicholas Boyer explained the importance of the trip, noting that the trade mission became a reality after the GCCI engaged the British High Commissioner and the Guyanese embassy in the UK.He went on to highlight that Aberdeen is an impacting city within the oil and gas sector in the UK. The Vice President alluded to the fact that Guyana needed to reach out to other countries who have experience in that sector if the country was to truly flourish from its earnings.It was explained by him that the GCCI intended to have its members connected to the foreigners who were well-schooled in the area and interested in setting up partnerships through the transfer of technology and skills to promote local growth and capacity.Boyer said, “While there, we are going to meet the oil and gas association from the UK, the Energy Industries Council, the Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce and some other organisations that will allow our members to get connected to their levels and once we build that bridge, it is expected that the UK-Guyana trade will grow.”Meanwhile, British High Commissioner Greg Quinn pointed out that the city has a long history which Guyana can learn from although it, too, has made some mistakes.According to him, “The visit has got several aspects to it and one is to allow us to connect business to business links, not just in the oil industry, but in other areas as education and such like culture. It will allow the educational industry in Aberdeen to reach out to the educational institutions here and it will allow us to build a relationship I hope between the Aberdeen Council and the City Council back here.”Quinn also flagged the importance of the trade mission as it was the first of its kind to the UK, laying the foundation for growth in several areas.ABIS Energy Guyana Limited Managing Director Francis Kiennan endorsed the words of the High Commissioner saying that the UK has over 60 years of experience in the area of oil and gas.The Director added that he hoped the trade mission allowed for the strengthening and renewal of diplomatic and business relations between the countries.So far, more than five companies have signed up for the trade mission, which has no other requirement but for interested businesses to be registered with the GCCI; the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association (GMSA); the Private Sector Commission (PSC) or other sister agencies.last_img read more

first_imgWell folks as we get closer to Christmas, the gentlemen that frequent Mavericks hit an annual high point of male grooming. We all want to look our best most days but as Christmas draws near and the staff parties are in full swing we are all trying to look our absolute best.One thing that is for sure when it comes to your hair style your best look can only be achieved with the best products and the best one for your hair!So The Mavericks decided we should list the top 5 hair products for men. After a few beers a lot of arguing and some strange tests, what we came up with is as follows… 5. Dapper Dan Matt ClayFor those messy looks with a strong hold. Dapper Dan Matt Clay offers a strong hold with a fantastic matt finish. This clay is soft and easy to apply and washes out first time, every time, guaranteed. You won’t find a better Strong hold matt product. Remember… a little goes a long way, but for more hold and grip simply add more product. 4. OSiS Mattifying Powder Dust ItOSiS Mattifying Powder Dust It has a lightweight texture to assist the natural movement of your hair, whilst adding volume and texture for a matt finish. Its versatile control effect means the more you apply the more control you get, but you’ll be amazed by the massiveimpact gained with such little product. Dust It Mattifying Powder has an OSiS Control Level of 1 for natural movement and style.3. Dear Barber Shaping CreamDear Barber shaping cream is great for a flexible hold for textured or smooth hairstyles. Very easy to use and great value as very little product is required to get the hold you want. It is fantastic for a natural no product look…2. Layrite OriginalLayrite is a revolutionary product in gent’s hair styling. If there was nothing else good about it, how easily it is washed out of your hair would be reason enough to buy it. However, it is simply one of the best and most versatile produces you could be lucky enough to get your hands on. It you are rocking a quiff, or a pomp you will get the height and volume with Layrite.If you are going for a textured look you will get the finish with Layrite, if you want a mid sheen or a matte look you can get it with Layrite. We have selected the original but the good news is there is a full range of Layrite products available. It’s a product every man should try, just to see how good it is. 1.Maverick’s Matte ClayDisregarding the possibility of being labelled biased, the number one product we settled on was our own Mavericks Matte Wax. How can we be so shamelessly brazen? Well here is our argument…. Mavericks Matte Wax is a very forgiving product. Some products you need toknow exactly what you’re doing with them to achieve the results you want, get the process wrong and you’ll never get the results. With Mavericks Matte Wax it’s just not the case, you can work and work at it and it will not dry up too quickly on you, or, lose its hold if you work it too much.Secondly it works well on either damp or dry hair and it won’t affect the results too much either. It works great with most hair types for textured, high, slicked, or natural styles. Another feather on its hat is, it is actually the best value out of all top 5 products.However, like everything else, it just had to be a fantastic product in the first place otherwise Mavericks would never have put their name on it…..
