While commending the launching of the magazine, the Minister of Natural Resources, Honourable Vickram Bharrat said, “The publication of Canopy magazine will help to keep the nation in tune with the rapid gains we are achieving in the forestry sector, which sometimes fly under the media’s radar. I see this magazine will be a valuable asset for sharing vital information about the massive progress of forestry and its value-added and spin-off sectors in Guyana.”
