The Government of Guyana (GoG), through the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) and the Guyana Office for Investment (GoInvest), and UMAMI today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the construction of a multi-million-dollar agro-processing facility in Black Bush Polder, Region Six.
The construction of the facility is expected to commence within the next six months. Once completed, over 50 persons will be employed at the facility.
Agriculture Minister Zulfikar Mustapha said that with the renewed interest in the sector since the Government assumed office a year ago, many investors have been signaling their interest to invest in the agriculture sector.
Minister Mustapha also noted that the Government’s agenda involves having more value-added products produced in Guyana for both domestic consumption and export.
