GRA filling top positions

DPI, GUYANA, Monday, November 20, 2017

The Minister of Finance has received supplementary financing approval for the Guyana Revenue Authority to fill high-level positions, to ensure the efficient functioning of the tax authority.

On Friday, November 17, the National Assembly passed the Supplementary Appropriation No 3/2017 which provided $2.9 billion for current and capital expenditures.

Of that sum, $118 million has been allocated to GRA for additional employment in 2017. “There’re a total of 61 new persons that are being hired over the course of 2017. The amounts also cater for promotions and various other adjustments,” Minister Winston Jordan explained.

The high-level positions which remain to be filled include Controller of Customs, and Commissioner, among several others. Over the last month, the GRA has been advertising their positions in the local newspapers.
