Guyana stands to earn tens of billions of US dollars over the next two decades from developing the burgeoning oil and gas sector. What does this mean for Guyana and, importantly, the hundreds of thousands in the Diaspora? What are the pathways to our collective prosperity?
To answer some of these questions, The Guyana Business Journal & Magazine (GBJ), the Caribbean Policy Consortium, and Manchester Trade Inc., with the support of the Institute of Caribbean Studies, hosted a public forum Navigating a Changing Guyana: Pathways to Prosperity in the Era of Oil and Gas, a free public forum on Wednesday, June 21, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at The Gathering Spot 1720 I St NW, Washington, DC 20006)
The free event brought together experts from the private and public sectors in Guyana and the Diaspora to engage the audience and share views on these questions. Representatives of ExxonMobil shared a Diaspora Oil & Gas Update, and our two panels examined Educational, Environmental, and Emerging Business imperatives.
Panelists included Dr.Ivelaw Griffith, Dr. Riyad Insanally, Dr. Ulric Trotz, Tamara Maxwell, and Oslene Carrington.
