The African Caribbean Chamber of Trade, Commerce and Industry – a body focused on improving trade between Africa and the Caribbean Region with its headquarters in Georgetown, Guyana – welcomes the expansion of relations between Guyana and the world’s second-largest and second-most-populous continent.
The Chamber notes the recent statement by Attorney General, Anil Nandlall, S.C, following a meeting with a Ghanaian Delegation on Wednesday in Georgetown.
The team is currently in Guyana to offer assistance in finalizing the country’s local content policy, an engagement that saw a comparison between Guyana’s draft Bill with legislation from Ghana as well as Nigeria.
The African Caribbean Chamber of Trade, Commerce and Industry welcomes the team and reiterates the enormous opportunities to improve trade between Guyana and the wider Caribbean with countries on the African Continent.
The Chamber would also like to equally commend the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo for his commitments towards working with Guyana and the Caribbean Region.
The framework for exchanges between Guyana and Nigeria is already established through the Directorate of technical aid corps – a framework for the exchange of resources, technology, and knowledge between Nigeria and countries of the Africans, Caribbean and pacific countries.
