AMCHAM opens office, welcomes newly accredited US Ambassador

DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, March 20, 2019

“We see a long future of continued economic cooperation between the United States and Guyana and will do all we can to expand economic opportunities and promote growth across all sectors,” says newly accredited US Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch.

She was speaking at a welcome reception in her honour hosted by the American Chamber of Commerce Guyana (AMCHAM), last evening.

US Ambassador Sarah-Ann Lynch acknowledged the organisers for the warm welcome, noting that “I am thrilled to be able to engage the local AMCHAM right from the start of my tenure.”

According to the Ambassador, AMCHAM promotes and creates bilateral trade, business opportunities and partnerships. She stated that “these objectives are among my top priorities for my mission, so it is very gratifying to have the local partner committed to the same goals.”

The event was also to formally launch the AMCHAM’s office in the Guyana Marriott Hotel

Given the increased relevance of Guyana in the international community, and attraction of the country as one of the preferred destinations for investments for American businesses over the last seven to eight, President of AMCHAM, Zulfikar Ally explained that since the launch of the Chamber in August 2018, they already have 45 active members with 7 committees.

Ally noted that their members can participate and contribute to the development of the organisation, share ideas for economic growth between Guyana and the US, and express and brainstorm solutions of concerns affecting their business.

He welcomed Ambassador Lynch to Guyana and noted that the US envoy has come to Guyana at a convenient time when the increased business activity between the two countries has led to the creation of new relationships and strengthening of old ones.
