The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) has collaborated with the Jamaica Chamber of Commerce (JCC) to facilitate an incoming trade delegation of 10 Jamaican companies operating in various sectors including information communications technology (ICT), financial services, business support services, manufacturing, real estate development and distribution.
The trade mission is scheduled to take place from January 26 to 31 at the Pegasus Hotel, Georgetown, Guyana.
The GCCI says that it views this initiative as a “key” advancement in the commercial relationship between Jamaica and Guyana. Through this engagement, the GCCI and the JCC hope to foster collaborative business relationships and encourage, promote, and facilitate trade and investment between the two countries.
It will also allow the GCCI to advocate for Guyana as a destination for Jamaican investment.
The Trade Mission programme will include meetings with prominent public and private sector representatives such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Guyana Office for Investment (GOInvest) and the Centre for Local Business Development (CLBD).
A key highlight of the agenda are matchmaking sessions which will enable one-on-one conversations between the participating companies and potential local partners, held with the ultimate goal of identifying future partnership opportunities.
Companies interested in meeting with specific visiting companies are asked to contact the GCCI Secretariat via telephone numbers 592-226-3519 or 592-227-6641, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
