In his remarks, Singh who left Guyana in 1982, said that he worked in the logistics sector for a number of years and the decision to start up the business was an idea that was presented by one of his customers.

“We go above and beyond to make sure our customers get their product in a timely manner and at a good price,” Singh said.

According to Singh, the company’s five-year plan include massive growth and expansion and providing jobs for Guyanese.

“We are here ready to hit the ground running and continue to go above and beyond for our customers,” he said.

Meanwhile, in his feature address, Minister of Public Works, Juan Edghill said Guyana is going to become a hub for “real connectivity” between the Caribbean and South America.

“We have to build out the physical infrastructure to facilitate that but we also have to be able to build out the technological and other infrastructure to support that and supply chain management and logistics is very, very important,” he said.

Since the PPP/C government assumed office, Edghill said they have been open to business.

And today, Guyana is experiencing massive transformation as it welcomes expatriates, international investors, and companies of great magnitude, Edghill said.

“The things we are doing now are multiplied…as a country we don’t need to do more, we need to do better and we need to achieve excellence,” he noted.

While all of this is ongoing, Edghill said the government has taken every step to ensure that as they entertain international investors, the citizens of the country are not “left behind.”

C.S World Cargo 2000 Inc. is located at lot 339 Cummings Street, Georgetown, and in its efforts to give back to society, the company donated millions of dollars to a number of organisations at the opening ceremony.
