Speak ng of b lat­eral co­op­erat on, the Head of State po nted out that “Guyana’s petroleum in­dus­try has al­ready at­tracted Spain’s in­vest­ment. We an­tic­i­pate in­creased in­volve­ment of Span­ish com­pa­nies in the oil and gas sec­tor of our econ­omy.” In his re­marks, Am­bas­sador Sanchez said “Co­op­er­a­tion be­tween our two coun­tries can help forge global so­lu­tions to global chal­lenges…Spain has been fo­cused tra­di­tion­ally, on the Span­ish­s­peak­ing Caribbean; how­ever, we have come to re­alise that there is much that Spain and Guyana can do to­gether. Not only is Guyana a promis­ing coun­try for trade and in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties, it also pos­sesses a strong en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit and is also very ac­tive in the con­text of CARICOM,” he said.
