As Guyana continues to pursue a path of unprecedented growth and development, President Irfaan Ali said that Guyana is open for business and will do what is necessary to support and encourage private sector investments.
“Guyana is open to investments, we are open to investors…in a transparent manner,” President Ali asserted during a joint press conference on Friday with US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo.
The President highlighted that the framework agreement signed today between Guyana and the US will pave the way for more concrete collaboration between the private sectors of the two countries.
He posited that the agreement will allow for the mobilsation of US capital and US private sector to participate in the wide-ranging economic opportunities and infrastructural transformation that is expected to take place here.
“More importantly, it has to do with the transfer of knowledge, the transfer of technology, cooperation, building capacity between the US private sector and the local private sector and taking the partnership beyond the two governments to the private sector, so that you will have a greater integration of the private sector and greater participation; and that is what we want”.
According to President Ali, there are great opportunities in Guyana for the diaspora and the US private sector to tap into.
