Guyana’s tourism potential will also be on display next year when an oil and gas conference is hosted here. However, the country is aiming to be the host country for more international conferences.

This was revealed on Wednesday by President Irfaan Ali as he delivered the feature address at the Guyana Tourism Awards Gala. 

According to him, plans are in place for Guyana to host the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) World Agriculture Conference within a few years.

“We are working on more international conferences to come our way because conferencing is an important part of the market here,” the Head of State told the gathering.

The President said that the PPP Government has started negotiations to have the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) T20 cricket final hosted in Guyana. 

This, he added, will be complemented by the development of a two-week all-encompassing tourism product that features the rejuvenation of the Guyana Festival and a regional night that will feature a Caribbean Community (CARICOM) food festival.

Additionally, President Ali disclosed that there would also be a regional carnival that will feature the best bands from a number of Caribbean islands.

“We have to do this, we have to think big—we have to think ahead of the game,” said the President.
