Guyana Trade Office in Dubai to promote investments, trade
A new trade office in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), is expected to be established following a successful meeting on Wednesday between the Guyanese private sector and the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
A press release from the Office of the President related that Hamad Buamim, the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce, indicated that the Chamber is ready to facilitate this office.
Buamim reportedly said that the office will promote and expedite continuous investment and trade partnerships between the two countries.
The Guyanese private sector representatives were led by the Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce Oneidge Walrond and Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport Charles Ramson Jr.
Both delegations discussed ways to connect businesses for trade and business opportunities between countries and about increasing the presence of Dubai’s private sector in our region.
Additionally, the release noted that Buamim emphasised his Chamber’s desire to continue building relationships with emerging countries like Guyana through private sector partnerships.
Prior to the meeting, the private sector delegation was told by President Dr. Irfaan Ali at a breakfast meeting to take advantage of the opportunities available and form themselves into consortiums.
A member of the UAE Royal Family Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook Al Maktoum of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) joined President Ali, Ministers of Government and members of the Guyana private sector for that breakfast.
This breakfast meeting is part of the wider string of engagements the high-level Guyanese team is engaged in to promote investments in Guyana.
