Press Release – Visit of Rahul Basu of GOA Foundation

Release Date: January 20, 2020

The document discusses the influence of oil companies’ public relations campaigns on Guyanese perceptions of the oil industry, which often overlook critical issues such as Citizens’ Dividend, equal rights to resource benefits, and inter-generational equity. To address this, Policy Forum Guyana invited Rahul Basu of the Goa Foundation to share their approach to natural resource extraction, which views minerals as a shared inheritance and advocates for the sale of minerals to be treated as an exchange of assets. This visit aims to foster informed civic opinion on these matters through public lectures, a Citizens Assembly, and meetings with various Guyanese organizations.
