He said Guyana’s tourism industry is developing. He pointed out the increased number of yachts that visited Guyana’s shores last year and further said that for 2014 thus far, around eight yachts have visited. Ali said the possibility of deep sea sports fishing is also being looked at as a tourism attraction.
