Realization of a Dream: Staatsolie, a Model for the Development of Natural Resources in Suriname By Eddy S. Jharap, former Managing Director of Staatsolie

In order to obtain development and prosperity, we cannot continue to have the hands out, but have to work ourselves. Eddy Jharap shows with an example from his own, how a descendant from indentured immigrants, born in an illiterate and poor family, have built a non traditional, but technological advanced petroleum company, Staatsolie, almost from scratch, in a politically turbulent small developing country, Suriname, South America.
