What Stabroek News, Kaieteur News, Christopher Ram and Clive Thomas won't want you to know.

Of course the pessimists, economic experts and doomsday news bearers will not want you to know, that despite the picture of negativity which they continue to paint, Guyana continues to fear well in the latest assessment by the Millennium Challenge Corporation(M.C.C).
The Millennium Challenge Corporation or M.C.C as it is called, is an innovative and independent US foreign aid agency created by the US Congress in 2004 that is helping lead the fight against global poverty.

The selection of countries as eligible for MCC assistance is determined by MCC's Board of Directors . Transparency regarding the process and criteria that govern selection of country partners and that inform the Board’s eventual decisions is a hallmark of the MCC model. For a country to be selected as eligible for an MCC assistance program, it must demonstrate a commitment to policies that promote political and economic freedom, investments in education and health, the sustainable use of natural resources, control of corruption, and respect for civil liberties and the rule of law, as measured by 17 different policy indicators.

In its latest assessment under the policy category of 'Ruling Justly' Guyana received scores of:

92%-Political Rights

89%-Civil Liberties

76%-Control of Corruption

95%-Government Effectiveness

61%-Rule of Law

89%-Voice and Accountability
