‘iNvest Guyana’ magazine launched

DPI, Guyana, Thursday, June 21, 2018

The Guyana Office for Investment (GO-invest) in collaboration with Advertising and Marketing Services on Wednesday launched its 2018/2019 iNvest Guyana Magazine edition.

The new edition, of 30,000 copies to be distributed locally and overseas, was unveiled at the Roraima Duke Lodge Hotel and aims to highlight market and investment opportunities in Guyana, to local and foreign investors.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GO-Invest, Owen Verwey said with the growing interest in investment opportunities in Guyana, the agency was pressed to print an additional 5,000 copies. “The magazine is important for us because it will help those who would have invested before, to be informed about the other investments opportunities that will be taking place. It will also help in identifying to those who are considering the Guyana market of various opportunities.”

Attending the launch, Minister of Business, Dominic Gaskin said, “it is important that we promote Guyana, we all have that responsibility. This magazine serves the purpose of promoting Guyana as an investment destination.”  He noted that the government has no say in the contents of the magazine. “We don’t get to edit the magazine or ensure that it satisfies the government agenda.”

Meanwhile, Managing Director for Advertising and Marketing Services, Lokesh Singh said “the magazine content has grown; we started doing 75 pages and this time around its 112 pages. One of the major things we have been able to do in this magazine which has brought it to life is using the annual national budget as the focal point of the magazine.”
