President Irfaan Ali on Saturday reassured graduates of Nations University that they are living in a country that will be “second to none” and will have an economy that will effectively and efficiently function in 2030 and beyond.
President Ali made the statement while delivering the feature address at the School’s 2022 graduation ceremony for diplomas and bachelor and master degree programmes at the Pegasus Suites and Corporate Centre.
The Head of State underscored that Guyana would not only have a diversified economy that could withstand all of the global shocks but would function on “cutting edge technology” and have all the high-end and high-paying jobs.
He said the government is working assiduously on ensuring the country becomes a world leader in various sectors such as agriculture, healthcare, education, environment, and biological and ecological services, among others.
“The changes that will take place [allow] you, on this transformative day in your life, to position yourself in the transformation of the country and to decide where you would like to fit in the transformation and how [you] would like to be part of the transformation.”
President Ali also congratulated all of the graduates and implored them to not only bask in their achievements but to look forward and reflect on themselves, their families, their communities, and the country and how they can make positive contributions.
