Any oil producing nation that is desirous of avoiding the deadly consequences of overreliance on hydrocarbons would strive for a diversified economy. It is for this reason Guyanese authorities have emphasized the importance of using oil revenues as an impetus for growth in industries like agriculture. Many Guyanese here and in the diaspora believe in the merit of this message. Omkaar Sharma, Chief Executive Officer at Amaya Milk Company is one such Guyanese. In this week’s episode of the Energy Perspectives podcast, Sharma shares the journey of returning to Guyana to make a massive investment in the dairy industry, totalling over $150 million. During his interview with CEO of the Guyana Energy Conference and Supply Chain Expo, Kiana Wilburg, key insights were revealed about the importance of the dairy industry to Guyana’s self-sufficiency agenda.
