President Ramotar said that Guyana has shared a very close relationship with South Africa for many years. In the 70s and 80s, Guyana played a leadership role in the solidarity movement with the anti-apartheid and national liberation struggle in Southern Africa.
Under the leadership of the present government, Guyana has had ties with South Africa at the multi-lateral and bilateral levels.
Recently, Guyana established an embassy in South Africa, which the Government hopes will further enhance the traditional friendship and lead to economic trade relations.
