The Cooperative Republic of Guyana is located in South America, bordering Venezuela, B razil, and Suriname. Guyana is a country geographically located in South America, but shares much of its rich culture with the Caribbean. Guyana’s unique blend is influenced by Indigenous Amerindian, East Indian, African, British, Dutch, and Chinese culture. It has an abundance of waterfalls, rivers, wildlife, and pristine forests. Guyana’s warm tropical climate makes it a vacationer’s paradise, not only for eco-tourists who enjoy the interior, but for those who are looking for adventure, relaxation, and an experience unmatched by any other in the region. The primary language spoken is English, and visitors will find our hospitality warm and inviting. There are a plethora of opportunities for entrepreneurs looking to invest in Guyana, and with a literacy rate of 91.8%, investors will find a favorable advantage in hiring local Guyanese for employment.

We invite you to come out and visit with us on March 16th and 17th at the Expo to learn more about Guyana. For more information please feel free to contact the individuals below.
