The Parliamentary Committee of Supply approved $11.5 million in supplementary funds to facilitate the expanded work programme of the Guyana Office for Investment (GO-Investment).

Those events include the International Energy Expo, the International Building Expo, the Saudi Arabia investment engagement, the Agro-investment forum and the Agro-fest in Barbados.
