See below GCCI Statement on National Crime Situation:
The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) notes with tremendous concern, the escalating rate of crime that is occurring in Guyana. The perpetuation of these violent crimes is of great concern to the members of the Chamber as it directly impacts the welfare of the citizens and enterprises of the country.
In particular, it has been noted that there seems to be an increasing rate of criminal activities against the business community. This has created an air of fear amongst the community in Guyana, as well as the wider citizenry.
The GCCI calls on the authorities to take stern actions against the criminal elements and ramp up its campaign against crime-fighting. The Chamber continues to remain willing to assist in any way possible and continues to view itself as a partner in development and nation-building.
