Ambassador of Guyana to the United States, Dr Riyad Insanally, recently emphasized the economic prospects that Guyana offered following the discovery of vast oil and gas reserves offshore.
He was the keynote speaker at a private networking luncheon in Washington DC, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced Tuesday.
According to the Ministry, the event was organized by the Washington Inter-Governmental Professional Group and attended by representatives of diplomatic missions, United States Government agencies and the private sector.
