Business Ministry ‘in it to win it’ Mash Day

DPI, Guyana, Monday, February 18, 2019

The dazzling array of blue and gold greeted the eyes of all present as the Ministry of Business launched their costume band for Mashramani 2019 earlier today at the Sophia Exhibition Centre. The band was launched under the theme, ‘Re-discovering El Dorado: the land of golden opportunities’.

Minister of Business, Dominic Gaskin told the Department of Public Information (DPI) that he was brimming with excited anticipation of his band taking the road on February 23. He added that the 100 strong band of staff and revellers of the ministry are looking forward to a day filled with fun and frolic and that they are “in it to win it” for the costume and float parade competition.

Costume Designer, Jermaine Broomes said that apart from the selection of the colours which represent the ministry, blue and gold is used on the costumes to represent Guyana’s waters and El Dorado and the golden opportunities Guyana has to offer.

According to the designer, the king of the band costume will depict the many aspects of business while the individual female reveller costume depicts the prime of El Dorado. The sub-agencies of the ministry will be displayed as sections of the float parade.
