A release today from the group said that the major objective of the mission is to expose the membership to markets in Guyana, especially in the area of non-energy exports.     

“Guyana is a growing market and is projected to have the largest growth in GDP next year (worldwide) and so it is important for the T&T business community to capitalize on our geographical advantage and so leverage all opportunities for investment, sourcing of inputs into manufacturing, exports, joint ventures and collaborations with our neighbours from next door”, the release said.

The delegation, led by TTMA’s President, Franka Costelloe, comprised 20 companies and 30 participants. The release said that Ramps Logistics and Republic Bank – both Trinidad-based – gave yeoman service to the delegates, while on the mission to Guyana.

The release said that TTMA has an independent contractor in Guyana, Dr. Doerga and he has been working with the organization to create market opportunities for its members.

The release said that the delegation also had the opportunity to visit the Guyana Oil Expo (GIPEX) on 20th November at the Marriott Guyana. There the mission was able to network with a large number of companies, meeting key contacts in the Guyanese market and igniting meaningful relationships.

The delegation says it held  over 80 meetings with Guyanese companies to exchange ideas, build mutual respect and undertake business opportunities for both countries.

“The TTMA delegation has been very well received by their Guyanese counterparts and looks forward to continuing building the relationships started during the visit to the benefit of both countries”, the release said.

Given what it said was the overwhelming interest in exploring opportunities here, the TTMA will mount a follow up mission during the first quarter of 2020.

      Guyanese citizenship is based on birth, parental lineage and marriage. How are Trinis getting to set shop in GT?

    Just me and me alone. Trinidadian involvement with any depth on any major project will end as a shit storm. If they were as efficient and above board as they claim Trinidad would be standing tall in the Caribbean, instead all signs point to Wild West, bread lines, shit hole status, terrible planning.
    They are nothing, Chinese with Caribbean accent, crooked, just another anchor around the neck of Guyana. JUST BE CAREFUL…INSIST ON RETURN AIRFARES

      Would I go in jail if I pull a Trini businessman from the toilet of his hotel room and leave a trail of urine and feces to the elevator, like what actually happened in Barbados to a Guyanese woman?

    Has Trinidad stopped putting Guyanese into detention centres and benches? I remember a time these white worshipping Yankee vassal states used to deport Guyanese who wanted to work in T&T, Barbados and St. Lucia.

    There was the infamous story of Barbados immigration officers pulling Guyanese women from toilets with the body waste leaving a trail as she was being pulled away.

    But these countries welcome white Americans with open arms. Go figure!
