Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Honourable Hugh Todd, recently met with Ambassador of the United States of America to the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, Her Excellency Sarah-Ann Lynch.
In her congratulatory message to the Foreign Minister, Ambassador Lynch said the United States looked forward to working with Guyana, especially in the areas of security, governance, education, manufacturing, services, tourism, oil and gas, economic growth and development, and health.
“We remain committed to continue to support Guyana’s future development in these areas,” Ambassador Lynch said.
Expressing his gratitude to the American Ambassador for her country’s continued support, Minister Todd stated that he too looked forward to working closely with her and colleagues in “mutually beneficial areas”.
“The Government‘s approach is very focused on markets,” he explained. “We’ll therefore rely heavily on the United States for multinational and business investors; for you to encourage US investors while ensuring space for local content.”
Minister Todd and Ambassador Lynch also discussed economic cooperation and inclusive governance, among other areas of mutual interest.
Guyana and the United States have continued to maintain a high level of bilateral cooperation since the establishment of diplomatic relations on August 15, 1966.
