Parlons un peu skepi
Par Cefas van Rossem, traduit par Jean-Philippe Riby

Des chercheurs de l’université de Cracovie et de l’université de Stockholm ont découvert d’importantes annotations sur le skepi dans le journal d’un missionnaire du XIXe siècle. Cette langue créole apparentée au néerlandais, maintenant éteinte, était jadis parlée dans la région de l’Essequibo, qui appartient aujourd’hui à la république coopérative du Guyana.

Bankers bombarding Guyana with financing plans as oil boom begins
Paul Allen

The Guyanese government is reporting that bankers are “bombarding” the country with offers of financing backed by future oil production. The Guyanese Finance Minister, Winston Jordan, has told Reuters that the government of the South American nation has rejected the proposals to avoid the excessive borrowing that has plagued other oil producers. As the former British colony begins its first significant oil production this year, it is wary of avoiding the mistakes made in oil-dependent economies such as Angola, Nigeria and its economically collapsing neighbour Venezuela.

David Granger, président du Guyana : "Le Guyana doit être considéré comme l'arrière-pays de la Caraïbe"

   Plus vaste pays du CARICOM avec 214.970km2, l'ancienne Guyane anglaise devenue à l'indépendance (en 1966) le Guyana, et assez peu peuplé : 735.000 habitants. Par comparaison, le Portugal qui n'a que 92.00km2 de superficie, compte 10 millions d'habitants. Il n'est donc pas étonnant que lors de l'Assemblée Générale des Nations Unies à New-York, la semaine dernière, son président, David GRANGER ait fait aux médias cette déclaration qui surprendra certains chauvins qu'il n'est pas besoin de nommer :

   "Guyana land space must be considered as the hinterland of the Caribbean" (L'espace guyanien doit être considéré comme l'arrière-pays de la Caraïbe).
