– calculations rebasedBy Leonard GildarieThe Guyana government has announced a major improvement in the way it deals with the country’s national accounts, with a new system that now uses current market prices to calculate growth instead of figures from 22 years ago.As a result, new figures from the rebasing, using prices from 2006, has seen the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) estimates jumping 77% for 2006-2009.Of huge significance, Minister of Finance, Dr Ashni Singh, said yesterday, is the fact that using data of 1988, Wholesale Jerseys From China Supply, which up to last year was being used, Guyana’s GDP in current market prices was estimated at almost $256M. Using the “current” data from the base year of 2006, the GDP is now being reflected at $413M.The new GDP series has also revealed higher historical real growth rates and changes in sectoral composition of GDP, owing to both the change in the structure of the economy and a better accounting of the activities in all the sectors.Government officials and invitees at the Guyana Rebased GDP Series Seminar at the Pegasus Hotel yesterday.According to new figures, the top five industry groupings, Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys, as measured by contribution to constant prices, GDP in 2009 is now agriculture, Wholesale Jerseys, fishing and forestry (21.4%); mining and quarrying (12.6%); wholesale and retail trade (12.4%); construction (9.8%); and public administration at 9%.At a seminar yesterday at the Pegasus Hotel to discuss the new system, Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China, Chief Statistician of the Bureau of Statistics, Lennox Benjamin, Nike NFL Jerseys China, said that using the old prices and data from 1988 clearly had its limitations, with key technical gains made in the economy not being able to be captured to reflect the true situation.Over the years since 1988, Guyana’s economy continued to face many changes. Government entities like the Guyana Liquor Corporation, Guyana Airways Corporation, Guyana National Cooperative Bank, are now no longer around.On the private sector landscape, Sijan Plaza, Sanata Textiles and Mohamed’s Record Bar, among others, Wholesale Jerseys China, have also disappeared.The rebasing of the national accounts therefore has high significance to the country since it will be now dealing with a more comprehensive coverage of the national accounts and the availability of data, Wholesale Jerseys From China, the lifeblood the Bureau of Statistics (BoS).The two-year initiative to update the system has seen heavy financial and technical expertise from the Caribbean Regional Technical Assistance Centre (CARTAC), a regional resource based in Barbados, which provides technical assistance and training in core areas of economic and financial management at the request of its participating countries.According to Therese Turner-Jones, CARTAC’s Programme Coordinator, Guyana has joined a number of countries in East Caribbean and Suriname to update its systems.Noting that it will increase transparency in governmental data, the official applauded BoS and Guyana for the move, and alluded to the significance of the information in the government’s decision-making process.However, she warned, the challenge will be that the work programme will have to be designed to ensure that initiative is sustained.New services by the BoS will have to be introduced – services similar to what developed countries are accustomed to make proper market analysis. Issues that deal with the quality of the data, its timeliness and accuracy will all have to be confronted.Minister Singh yesterday described the rebasing to 2006 as a major historic achievement to improve on the methods employed by Guyana to calculate and keep current its national accounts.In addition to CARTAC, there were tremendous inputs from various agencies to help the rebasing process.He acknowledged the shortcomings in the data currently in the possession of BoS and noted that this will be a main challenge.

The City Constabulary is currently investigating the alleged beating of a female guard from a private security firm by four of its own, on Tuesday, Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys, last, at the Stabroek Market Constabulary Office. Andrew Foo, Wholesale Jerseys, Chief Constabulary Officer, Wholesale Jerseys China, has confirmed that there is a probe into the matter.A tearful Melissa Downer, who contacted Kaieteur News yesterday, claims that her alleged perpetrators accused her of being a prisoner and she was delivered severe blows about her body during the ordeal, Nike NFL Jerseys China, which lasted for several minutes.Downer stated that after she completed providing security services to the Constabulary Office, Wholesale Jerseys From China Supply, her alleged perpetrators refused to sign her release, instead they started abusing her verbally and physically.She is of the belief that her maltreatment was as a result of her tagging some of the officers attached to the Constabulary as wicked and stressful. Downer said she expressed this while telling a friend of her feelings towards the Constabulary. She contends that one of the officers probably overheard her conversation and that may have sparked the altercation.Downer recounted that, “Dey (Constabulary Officer) refuse to book me out. I tell dem yes y’all don’t want book me out but y’all does want do a lot of stupidness and tek way people greens, and breaking de stand dem down and saying is junkie, but I see wha does go on… and I seh I going and report it at headquarters.”Following her threat to report the alleged delinquent officers, Downer claims one of the female officers grabbed her shirt and cuffed her, causing her to fall to the ground. The officer continued to assault her and the other three joined in.“One ah dem juk me with a umbrella and scratch me near my eye. Another one kick me up in my back and cuff me to my ears. When I get up I scratch one ah dem and bite one ah dem, Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China, and dey handcuff me, put me on de bench to sit down in constab and seh them gon kill me and me children dem; dem gon shoot me and me children because me like f…ing talk, ” she further claims.“After dem done, Wholesale Jerseys From China, dey carry me outside and seh me is a prisoner, so I seh I is not a prisoner, I is a working woman…I don’t thief, I don’t kill, I is no murder, I ain’t deserve dis treatment.”Downer stated that she was then taken to the City Constabulary Office where she told a gentleman she was unwell and her entire body was in pain and asked to be taken to the hospital. At approximately after 11:00 hrs she was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital for treatment wearing handcuffs.A police statement was taken at the Hospital but the Constabulary Officer who took Downer for treatment did not give it to her.The aggrieved Downer claims that she went to the Brickdam Police Station on Wednesday to file a complaint, since there is uncertainty that she will receive justice from the Constabulary. However, Foo stated that there is an Investigation Department that looks into such complaints.Downer noted that around 13:00 hrs, a male police officer while taking her complaint told her she likes to talk too much. Being unable to give the names of her alleged perpetrators, Downer was asked if she can identify the persons who allegedly assaulted her and she responded in the affirmative.Downer is saddened by the fact that she was not taken to identify her alleged offenders and no one was taken into custody. She plans to seek an audience with the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs for assistance.
