[www.inewsguyana.com] –Minister of State, Joseph Harmon and Minister of Business, Dominic Gaskin are scheduled to address a bloc of Chinese trade investors in Guyana on Thursday at the Arthur Chung Convention Center.
According to Chairman of the Guyana China Business Council (GCBC), Clinton Williams, invitations have been sent to members, affiliates and non-members of the Council.
He said that the primary purpose of this special meeting is to facilitate the exchange of ideas that will craft a way forward, as well as to discuss issues specific to the conduct of business in the various sectors of the economy in which Chinese investors and immigrants are involved.
A GCBC statement detailed that Zhang Limin, Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China, has also been invited to the special meeting.
“He is expected to speak about the bilateral trade relations and social contracts between Guyana and China which he recently said have been maintained on a sound and stable developmental footing since diplomatic ties were established between our two countries over 160 years ago,” the statement noted.
The Guyana-China Business Council has been operating under the umbrella of the Private Sector Commission for more than 10 years. It was however suspended for a while and was revived in 2012 when Williams was elected to head this Business Support Organization (BSO).
“The GCBC expects that a wide cross section of Chinese entrepreneurs will seize this opportunity to discuss the hot-button trade and social issues they face with the recently sworn-in Executive President and their country’s Ambassador to Guyana,” the release stated.
