Georgetown, Guyana – (August 9, 2017) President David Granger has emphasised the important contribution small businesses make to the growth of the economy. Speaking during a visit to F&H Printing Establishment in Campbellville, where he was invited by the entity’s proprietor to take a look at their operations, the Head of State, today, said, “In fact, worldwide, 95 percent of businesses are small and they employ 60 percent of people around the world. So while they might be a few big corporations, the fact is that small businesses sustain the economy.
The President lauded the company’s management for maintaining a strong track record in terms of quality and innovation. He noted that investment in technology has enabled F&H to catapult into one of the finest printing companies in Guyana. “This company invested in technology and that is the most important thing you have to remember in building an enterprise. You have to pay attention to innovation. Innovation opens the door to better access to the markets. It helps you to know what markets are producing and what they are demanding… These are lessons that F&H can teach to the corporate community,” President Granger said.
F&H started as a small family business in 1988 and today the company continues to be run in a family atmosphere with over 30 employees. The President also recognised that staff loyalty has been a contributing factor to the establishment’s expansion and development.
