"Your country and its people
have the talent and the passion
to excel. These raw uncut crick-
eting gems exist in every village
in Guyana. Sit with your stake-
holders and plot your short,

pitches, you know that answer
"Economically, there are many
better than me to pronounce,
but all I want to urge, is that
you look at ways of adding value
to that which you have access
to. Value to your people, value
to your timber, your craft, value
to your unspoilt environment.
