Guyana is to sign a framework agreement for economic cooperation with Barbados, President David Granger has announced.
The announcement comes on the heels of the country signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Trinidad and Tobago yesterday.
Granger, addressing the inaugural, Guyana Trade and Investment Exhibition (GuyTIE 2018) yesterday, said the decision was taken following attendance at the Ninth Meeting of the Prime Ministerial Sub-Committee of the Caribbean Single Market and Economy (CSME) in Barbados earlier this month.
“We see Guyana’s future in the Caribbean and we see the Caribbean’s future in Guyana,” Granger said, as he highlighted the Caribbean as an important common market amidst trade wars and Brexit.
According to a report by the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) Granger said Guyana will continue to pursue regional economic cooperation in order to build greater prosperity and global competitiveness.
