He told GINA that “Guyana is continuing to rise.” He said he has seen a number of changes since his last visit and “The transformation I’ve seen since then is one of the most amazing changes I have seen in any country before and that means that the people are working together, the leadership is working and the government is obviously making decisions that are helping in the infrastructural development of the country.”
According to GINA the president and Munroe also discussed possible collaborations between Guyana and The Bahamas and NGOs. “We also talked about some of the issues relevant to environmental concerns with regards to carbon emissions and the role Guyana can play in the future of the world… I believe that Guyana is one of the wealthiest countries in the world because of the forests,” Dr. Munroe said.
