During the short ceremony on Friday, at the Ministry of the Presidency, Ambassador Holloway noted the long and productive partnership that Guyana and the U.S share.

He said the two countries have worked together to promote shared values of democracy, human rights, economic freedom and social inclusion and pledged continued cooperation in this regard.

 His credentials were accepted by President Granger who noted that the existing relations have cemented collaboration in the promotion of democracy, energy, health, security, trade and other areas of mutual interest.

The President said Guyana looks forward to the support of the United States in its legitimate quest to protect itself against terrorism, transnational crime and threats to its territorial integrity.

Holloway arrived in Guyana, along with his wife on Thursday, September 24th after having been confirmed by the U.S Senate in August.

  1. Holloway, looks like he following the path like hunt careful not a good image the US is showing the world it meddle in other country affairs

  2. Let me add, GUYANESE PEOPLE WILL WORK WITH THEIR LOCAL LEADER MORE FREELY TO ACHIEVE BETTER. YOUR HELP SHOULD BE DIRECT TO LOCAL LEADERS AND THE LOCAL COMMUNITY NOT THROUGH THE HANDS. .YES HANDS OF THE GOVERNMENT. YES IT CAN BE DONE. STRONG COMMUNITY BRING STRONG REGION. .STRONG REGIONS BRING A COUNTRY.

  3. Let’s assume they want to help.It should be transparent. Let the people choose their local leader. A genuine local government is the only option left for the country to be on the right track. Local leaders should not be appointed there by Ministers.I am absolutely sure that some of this government action you all are not pleased with. So I say to you all HELP PUT A LOCAL GOVERNMENT THE PEOPLE CHOOSE. GUYANESE PEOPLE WANTS BETTER, IT’S GOVERNMENT THAT MAKES IT BAD.
