The governments of the Dominican Republic and Guyana signed 6 cooperation agreements aimed at promoting tourism, mining and agricultural production in both nations.
The signing of these agreements took place within the framework of the official visit of the President of Guyana, Mohamed Irfaan Ali to his counterpart Luis Abinader at the National Palace to strengthen bilateral relations between the two nations, which were established in 1970.
The agreement on the tourism sector seeks to combine sun, sand and beach tourism with ecological tourism. Basically, the Dominican Republic will make use of its experience in this area, since the country is a reference in the Caribbean and worldwide.
The agreement was signed by the Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce of Guyana, Oneidge Walrond and David Collado, Minister of Tourism of the DR.
In that sense, President Abinader referred to the agreement between both Ministries of Tourism, since “they can combine the sun and beach of the Dominican Republic, as well as the successful experience in this sector, with Guyana, which has one of the best ecotourism landscapes that can be found in the world, with its forests and the Amazonian part”.
While through four others, an oil block will be explored, a refinery and a petrochemical plant will be built, and oil exports will be promoted.
On his side, Mohamed Irfaan Ali, expressed confidence that the agreements will place the two countries in an advantageous position in the region and the world.
