GEORGETOWN, Guyana (Thursday, February 25, 2021) — Business relations, between Guyana and the United States (US), are stronger now, than ever, asserted US Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch, during a courtesy call on the Chief Executive Officer of the Guyana Office for Investment (GO-Invest), Dr. Peter Ramsaroop, yesterday.
The meeting served as a follow-up to a visit, last year, by a team from the US International Development Finance Corporation.
In an invited comment, Ambassador Lynch said she was pleased to be meeting with the agency, to discuss several areas of mutual interest.
“We are talking about US business opportunities here, public-private partnerships, perhaps, and I am just learning about Dr. Ramsaroop’s priorities and where the development possibilities are, for the future of Guyana at this important time,” the ambassador explained.
She also noted that relations, between the two countries, continue to improve, and she is looking forward to working with the government of Guyana.
“We have excellent relations, between the government and US businesses and, we hope too, to work even harder to improve those relations. Of course, I think there are many opportunities here, for US investors, and we look forward to expanding our work with the government,” Lynch elaborated.
Meanwhile, Dr. Ramsaroop responded by thanking the US Ambassador for her advocacy for Guyana’s democracy, and noted that there is a lot of investment interest in Guyana.
“There are significant US companies coming into the country, looking for where those opportunities are,” he said.
The Go-Investment head noted that investment opportunities are in keeping with President, Dr. Irfaan Ali’s, vision for transformational development, and span several sectors.
