Potential investors were encouraged to identify segments of demand within petroleum companies if they want to benefit from the country’s petroleum advancements.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Carl Greenidge, told business investors in Atlanta, Georgia there are opportunities, for knowledge intensive and other services along the supply chain, in the oil and gas sector. Minister Greenidge recently met with the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) at Georgia Technical Institute.
“One has to look at the services that are being required and try and ensure that you can find advantage in putting together packages of skills that can deal and meet the needs and demands of the company”, Minister Greenidge said. He also mentioned the investment opportunities in mining, infrastructure and other major developmental projects.
The meeting was facilitated by Libra Management Group. The group provides management and consulting services to federal government entities in the US. Facilitator Stacey Mollison said the engagement gave businesses the opportunity to take a new look at Guyana.
“It’s really important not because I come from Guyana because there is so much happening in Guyana right now I wanted to have real and true diaspora engagement in terms of who we can bring to look at opportunities in the country”, Mollison said.
Georgia Tech’s MBDA is part of the school’s economic development programme with a focus on job creation. MBDA works with minority firms to improve their capacities.
