Guyana strongly trusts in improving commitment to regional integration, says Dr Irfaan Ali. He further reaffirmed Guyana’s commitment to work with the Government of Barbados in the shared spirit of regional integration.
The President of Guyana said this while welcoming the Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley, and her delegation to State House for a working dinner last evening.
“I want to let you know that here in Guyana, led by myself as President, the cabinet and the people of this country, we admire your leadership greatly, your leadership. We firmly believe in your commitment to regional integration, and we will work with you every single day in our journey ahead together to ensure that the goals that you are setting can be realised and the people of this region can be uplifted to better heights.”
As she reflected on the friendship shared with the Guyanese President, the Barbadian prime minister said that, “For me, it is important that the last trip I had made during the COVID started, before the final lockdown was to Guyana. And the first trip that I am making since receiving the mandate to the people of Barbados is to Guyana. I think that showcases very bilateral ties between the two nations and even beyond what exists with us as CARICOM nations.”
Meanwhile, she also expressed thanks to President Ali for the invitation and for providing the opportunity for Barbados’ public and private sector officials in her delegation to work with the Guyanese counterparts.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister of Barbados Mia Amor Mottley said that, “We believe that we are at a time in the world where deeper partnership matters if we are going to be able to move the needle for the benefit of our citizens.”
Barbadian Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley’s and her 14-member delegation arrived in Guyana late yesterday afternoon to attend this week’s “International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana.”
