“No evidential basis” for cash payouts to population from petroleum revenues – Guyana's President Granger

President David Granger yesterday said there is “no evidential basis” for the suggested cash payout to households from the expected Oil and Gas revenues.

Economist, Dr. Clive Thomas speaking at a recent forum said the government should consider annual cash transfers of $1Million (US$5000) to poor households.
However, President Granger said he has not received a formal proposal from Dr. Thomas in this regard.

“I have not considered that proposal, it is outside of the recommendations of the Sovereign Wealth Fund, the Natural Resources Fund and I don't know that there is a precedent for it.”

The Head of State reminded that a quintet of ministers and the newly appointed Head of the Department of Energy, Dr. Mark Bynoe, are advising him on matters related to the Oil and Gas sector.

On Wednesday, during the 96th Sitting of the National Assembly, Minister of Finance, Winston Jordan laid the Government's ‘Green' paper on the Natural Resources Fund for consideration by the House. It is expected that before the year has ended, legislation will be enacted that will see the prudent management of the petroleum resources.

The ‘Green' paper presents preliminary proposals which are expected to stimulate discussions. It also details specific issues and possible courses of action in terms of policy and legislation.

It also elaborates on the necessity of the establishment of a Sovereign Wealth Fund. (DPI)
