From November 20 to 22, 2023, the EU is organising an EU Global Gateway Economic Mission to Guyana, with a view to foster investment of EU companies in sectors that are crucial for the EU-LAC Global Gateway Investment Agenda (GGIA) that was adopted during the EU-LAC Summit in July. This includes Forestry, including agriculture and sustainable timber products, Renewable Energy, Water Management, Health and Connectivity, including transport and digitalisation (GGIA for Guyana attached).
Guyana is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and an important EU partner on climate related agenda. The moment is decisive for the country to undertake a green and inclusive growth model, which is the objective of the investment opportunities under GGIA.
The mission expects to mobilise around 30-40 EU companies interested to invest in the country and EU development partners. During the 3-day mission, EU companies will have the opportunity to get valuable insights on trade and investment opportunities, including exchange with political masters and EU public representatives on public-private collaboration, participate to B2B networking sessions, as well as to field visits.
EU interested companies to join the mission can register at the officialwebpage of the EU Global Gateway Economic Mission to Guyana.
Additionally, there will be a Webinar on EU Global Gateway Economic Mission: new business opportunities in Guyana, Emerging Regional Hub for the Caribbean, Amazonia and beyondon October 20 at 14:30 CET (link to register in Zoom), for further information and questions. For any additional need, you can get in touch with the Mission’s support team (Ms Taiana Mora: Taiana(at)nex.com.do).
