Barbados and Guyana are seeking to establish a relationship that could be used as a developmental model to transform the Caribbean.
Yesterday during the opening ceremony of Agrofest held at Queen’s Park, The City, President of Guyana Dr M. Irfaan Ali said the type of collaboration both countries needed to tackle security threats would require unification and innovation.
In order for this plan to work, Ali said Barbadians and Guyanese could no longer see themselves as competitors but “as a singular collective”.
“The relationship that we are building between Guyana and Barbados is to bring economic prosperity to both countries. We are not looking at winning in one area or creating a situation where we are carving out an area for you and an area for Guyana. That is not what we want. We want a holistic approach to this relationship so that we create economic prosperity in every sector and in everything that we do together as one country, Guyana and Barbados,” he said. (SB)
