Guyana gets help from UK to develop its maritime economy  


The United Kingdom (UK) has been working in partnership with Guyana to develop a  bespoke plan as part of the UK’s commitment to helping countries, especially Small Island Developing States, to develop their marine economies in a sustainable, resilient, and integrated way.

This was disclosed by UK’s Minister of State Overseas Territories, Commonwealth, Energy, Climate and Environment), the Rt Hon Lord Goldsmith.

“We are delighted that this national Maritime Economy Plan, alongside Guyana’s updated Low Carbon Development Strategy articulates a strong vision of the Government to build a robust Blue Economy.” He said in a recent quote released by the British High Commission in Guyana.

Goldsmith said the UK knows that effective ocean protection will be critical in turning things around for climate, for nature, and for people.

“The UK Government remains committed to maintaining its track record as a reliable and committed development partner with Guyana in navigating this rapidly developing maritime sphere. We share one global ocean – so we need a whole earth effort to sustain it,” he added.

    The increasing queue of countries participating in and helping to drive the rapid economic and social development process in Guyana bodes well for the country if only the Opposition APNU will cease trying to destabilise the country in pursuit of its narrow selfish political agenda and deprive the people of its long for awaited opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their well endowed land and sea areas and the rapid pace of infrastructural expansion and improvement to promote the realisation of the One Guyana Policy and Programme through inclusionary governance, training and development and a most outward looking foreign policy that is courting the wealth Guyanese diaspora. Never in the history of Guyana has so much been done in so a short a time including its projected 50% growth of its GDP with equity and distributive justice and fairness for all Regions and peoples benefitting from the hydrocarbon bonanza equally. Norton must conduct himself as a statesman.
