GO-Invest launches “Invest 55”

…to promote investment opportunities across sectors

The Guyana Office for Investment (GO-Invest) has launched “Invest 55” in observance of Guyana’s 55th Independence Anniversary.
The project aims to promote investment opportunities here through global partnerships, increased competitiveness, while globalising Guyana’s economic sectors.
The areas in which investment opportunities are offered include agriculture, tourism, manufacturing, energy, services, Information and Communication Technology and mining.
GO-Invest, in a press release on Tuesday, said Guyana has been experiencing transformative and exponential growth since becoming an oil-producing nation, with Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and Local Content Investment (LCI) being among the engines of growth.
“The growing economy and improved infrastructure will bring benefits for regional partners. Guyana and Brazil will benefit from a long-planned road, opening the door to bilateral trade. Another major project is the construction of the Corentyne bridge, which will link Suriname and Guyana and further expand Guyana’s investment portfolio,” the release stated.
Within a year’s time, Invest-55 is expected to be a central pillar in promoting immense opportunities in integrated mega farms, milk plants, corn and soya bean production for stock feed, expansion of call centres and business process outsourcing, manufacturing of machinery and equipment, and alternative energy projects featuring hydro, solar and wind power.
