He also noted the increase in tourism and construction activities.
“I’d like us to be very happy that we are a country that is laden with opportunities and that we use this tool as well to promote Guyana,” Doerga said.
Chief Executive officer of the Guyana Office for Investment, Peter Ramsaroop, while delivering remarks at the launch, spoke of the huge potential for business development in Guyana.
“Do not be left behind, be involved, listen to his excellency and our administration as we put our plans together, it is all for enabling the private sector, to be able to deliver better on their services and for every citizen of Guyana regardless of our race of colour, texture of our hair or political affiliation, all of us have the opportunity to benefit from our prosperity,” Ramsaroop said.
The British High Commission has been very supportive of the Magazine and continues to show this support.

“The Growth in the number of people here and the directory says something about what’s happening here in Guyana the incredible growth and huge opportunities for the private sector. A business directory like this will be so useful for them to understand, who is here, who are the people that are delivering services, who can they potentially partner with in the future,” the British High Commissioner said.
