Georgetown Chamber of Commerce saddened by Hoyte’s passing Stabroeknews - Tuesday, December 24, 2002

The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry has expressed its sadness at the passing on Sunday of former President Hugh Desmond Hoyte, declaring that Guyana can ill afford to lose its statesmen and women in these troubled times.

Hoyte, according to the chamber, will be remembered for, among other achievements, his commitment to steer Guyana towards an open market economy. The chamber also admired his willingness to meet and discuss matters of interest with the business community.
The association extended its condolences to Mrs Joyce Hoyte, the members of the PNCR and all those who were touched by the life of this “eminent son of Guyana”.
