Ambassador Brotherson also drew attention to Guyana’s diverse makeup, saying that this feature drives tolerance and unity.

“As a nation, we are not without our challenges, but it is these very challenges that serve to cement our resolve towards ensuring that Guyana remains a strong and unified nation. Our nation is set to achieve much more in the years ahead. This noble objective of ‘One Guyana’ has at its core the sustainable and equitable development of Guyana and the ultimate prosperity of all Guyanese,” he asserted.
