He added that in relation to the MERCUSOR group, Guyana inscribed their name as an observer in the group and has been working with some of its member countries in the region to diversify access to markets.
Over the years, Guyana would have enjoyed relations with countries of the Region, which the current administration has been working to deepen with one area of cooperation being the construction of a bridge across the Corentyne River- connecting Suriname and Guyana. [GINA]
