Persons interested in doing business with Guyana are invited to register for a presentation on the topic Exploring Potential Investment and Trading Opportunities in Guyana.
The session, organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, will be held on Friday, July 12, at the Cave Hill School of Business, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, St. Michael, from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
According to Chief Economist in the ministry, Agard Evans, “the policy of the Government is to increase Barbados’ export of goods and services, as well as investments in extra regional and regional markets in an effort to increase our foreign exchange earnings”.
“One way to do this is by entering new markets and increasing exports in markets that we are already have a presence in, such as Guyana,” he said.
The chief economist stated that trade between Barbados and Guyana had been favourable for both countries, but there was still room for improvement.
He pointed out that Guyana needed persons who could play a role in the development of certain sectors, and noted that Barbadians were in a position to service that market.
He added that the ministry’s presentation, Exploring Potential Investment and Trading Opportunities in Guyana, would give interested persons insight into the Guyanese market.
He said everyone, from established businesspersons to young entrepreneurs, was invited to attend.
It is expected that participants would hear presentations from representatives from both countries, including the Barbados Coalition of Service Industries; the Caribbean Institute of Certified Management Consultants; the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security and the Ministry of Tourism and International Transport.
