Guyana, Grenada talk enhanced partnership; diaspora urged to return
Guyana’s Foreign Secretary Robert Persaud met with the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Trade and Export Development of Grenada, Joseph Andall, in St. George to discuss enhanced bilateral cooperation between Guyana and Grenada in several areas.
The Foreign Secretary lauded the Guyana/ Grenada relations and highlighted the need for enhanced collaboration in regional integration efforts within the Caribbean Community.
During the discussion, he also addressed Grenada’s support for President Ali’s regional food security plan, which will see countries within CARICOM’s import bill reduced by 25% by 2025. The issues faced by Guyanese living in Grenada were also discussed.
During his visit, the Foreign Secretary met with the Guyanese diaspora, some of whom migrated from Guyana in the 1970s and 1980s.
Grenada has a small Guyanese population who have been contributing to the service and education sectors in the country. At the meeting, Persaud also emphasised the opportunities and developments currently ongoing in Guyana and the benefits and importance of the collective diaspora.
