Guyana continues to benefit from strong ties with the United States Government – 3rd Jul 2013
Speaking at an event to observe the 237th Independence Day celebration of the United States, which was hosted by US Ambassador, Brent Hardt, and his wife at their residence, President Donald Ramotar said that the United States remains a significant ally with Guyana, as the country receives several developmental assistance from the United States Government for several of its projects, including combating crime and environmental awareness.
President Ramotar said that while the relationship between the two nations have evolved since Guyana’s independence in 1966, the grounding pillar has been built on the principles of mutual respect and understanding and non-interference in each other’s affairs.
In his address Ambassador Hardt said the relations between the United States and Guyana and the United States and the Caribbean Community over the last year have never been closer and more dynamic.
He pointed out several instances where Guyana continues to benefit from ongoing US-funded programmes.
The celebration last evening, which was under the theme “The Great American West”, saw several individuals including members of the diplomatic Corps, Ministers of Government, the Parliamentary Opposition and Members of the Private Sector.
