SAN JUAN – The Australian envoy to Guyana and the Caribbean Community met with Guyanese President David Granger on Monday to discuss potential areas for investment in mining and agriculture.
“In terms of investment, we believe that there are good opportunities in Guyana for Australian investors, particularly in minerals and (possibly) in agriculture, in years to come. So we will keep the relationship bubbling along,” High Commissioner Ross Tysoe said, according to a Guyanese government statement.
The talks also addressed the challenges posed by climate change.
“Australia has been experiencing very devastating bush fires in levels that have never been experienced before, and so we discussed areas of collaboration and the building of institution-to-institution links on climate change, among other issues,” Tysoe said.
