Kaieteur News- June 12, 2012
The Berbice Chamber of Commerce and Industry is pushing ahead with its plans for 2012 to stage yet another marquee event. Hot on the heels of the successful staging of the independence T20 cricket which was held in collaboration with the Berbice Cricket Board.
The Chamber will now be hosting an Auto Show at the Rose Hall Estate Community Centre ground. The activity is set for Saturday June 30, 2012. It is expected to be the largest Auto Show to be ever promoted in Guyana.
The activities which are billed to drive and stimulate trade and commerce particularly in the auto and related industry will see a grand outdoor exhibition including garages and auto dealers, banks, insurance companies, spares and accessories dealers, spray and body work shops, tint shops, agents and other exhibitors all converging at one venue, bringing a wide line of products and services to the public.
According to the Berbice Chamber President, Imran Saccoor, the event which is the first of its kind to be organized locally is themed “Everything Auto, Own Yours Today”. It is expected to encompass all related services that come along in the Auto Industry.
According to the President, “This event is expected to stimulate and heighten the awareness of people understanding the need to own a vehicle. A vehicle is no longer a luxury but a necessity and convenience.”
It is so much easier to own a vehicle than it was 10 years ago. One can now go to commercial banks and auto dealers with as little as a 15 per cent down payment.
All the relevant agencies including the commercial banks, insurance companies, the accessories store, the tint shops, and the bodywork shops will all be represented.
