Guyana: President of Guyana Dr. Irfaan Ali Congratulations to the 46th President of the United States of America, Mr. Joseph R. Biden Jr., and Vice President Kamala Harris.
In his message, President Ali said, “Your call for unity and democracy are critical components of good governance which we share entirely with you. “
He added, “We pray that God continues to bless the Government and people of the United States. We stand together with you in defense of unity, democracy, and peace.”
U.S. policy to Guyana seeks to develop robust and sustainable democratic institutions, laws, and political practices; support economic growth and development; promote an active, organized, and empowered civil society; and promote stability and security. In the late 1980s, Guyana sought to improve relations with the United States due to a decision to shift toward political nonalignment, going from state socialism and one-party control to a market economy and greater freedom of the press assembly.
This shift, closer security cooperation, and expanding trade and investment have helped place U.S.-Guyanese relations on excellent footing. With the change of Guyana’s economy to an oil-producing nation, the U.S. partnership is more important than ever to help Guyana become a leader in the region on security and governance issues.
The United States remains to be one of Guyana’s most significant trading partners.
Guyana and the United States belong to many the same international organizations, including the United Nations, the Organization of American States, and the International Monetary Fund. The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat is headquartered in Guyana. In 2020, Guyana served as the chair of the G77 grouping of developing countries in the United Nations.
Many people of Guyana also congratulate Biden, and Harris, Williams, a resident of Guyana, said,” Congratulations to the USA’s newly elected president. May its leadership bring peace, unity, and prosperity to all Americans.
