Guyana and Canada have restated their support for each other’s development thrust

Guyana and Canada have restated their support for each other’s development thrust when Guyana’s Foreign Affairs Minister met Canada’s Minister of State  and Foreign Affairs Diane Ablonczy at Takuba Lodge on Monday.

Minister Carolyn  Birkett  said the two countries have a lot in common, with Guyana having a significant number of Guyanese residing there. She expressed Guyana’s hope for continued strong bilateral relations.

Canada and Guyana have agreements in Air Transport and  avoidance of Double taxation. For 2011 close to half a billion Canadian dollars in goods and services came from Canada and  just over 36 million Canadian dollars was exported to the  second largest country in the world. According to Minister Ablonczy she would be trying to ensure Canada shares its development experience with  Guyana

Minister Ablonczy’s 3 day official visit was expected to  include courtesy calls on President Donald Ramotar and opposition leader David Granger.
