    I wish Paula Platsko well in her role. However, beyond quality control and accountancy DEXIA desperately needs innovative management. From my experience of working on projects for DEXIA, Lloyd Pascal would have been the closest in-house candidate for the job.

    For the future we should be looking towards training inventive agricultural engineers. Elsewhere in the world engineers have played a key role in improving the methods of farming and the processing of agricultural products.

    It was about time!!! The Chairwoman of the board also has to go. She is responsible for the demise of DEXIA. Let’s see who comes next. How about DDA and IDA?
    Now is the time to make that move. Sweeping CHANGE.
    After more than 15 years as CEO what more can these managers bring us? Now is the time to evaluate their performance. Our country must move on to the next level.

      I second the motion. Lloyd is well versed professional in his field. We achnowledge his experience and be exposure in the field. He should have someone understudying him
