Prime Minister Phillips said over the years China has contributed greatly to the development of Guyana in a multifaceted manner and, based on discussions, the country will continue to do so throughout the coming years.

“As we leverage the revenue from petroleum to develop Guyana in infrastructure, energy, telecommunication and ICT connectivity, China will certainly be there to continue to play a major role in those aspects of development of Guyana,” the Prime Minister said.

Meanwhile, Ambassador Jianchun noted that China and Guyana have a rich history of collaboration. “We have accomplished a lot, but there is potential that we can work together to develop more,” he said.
