BILATERAL CHAMBER | GUYANA

Guyana is a country of 787,000 people. Infrastructure is a priority for the government and President Irfaan Ali has committed to tapping the country’s sovereign wealth fund to invest in the country’s infrastructure. The government plans to build new hospitals, roads and highways, hotels, schools, and expand the airport, all in an effort to overhaul the economy. The government knows it cannot do this alone, which is why it stands ready to welcome U.S. businesses and investors.
