The Minister of Business who also has responsibility for tourism development in Guyana emphasized the link between tourism development and reliable transportation in the region.

He disclosed that all the aggressive marketing of the country would not bear any fruit if there is no corresponding transportation network to get tourists to the destination efficiently.

The Minister pointed out that Guyana, known for its rich bio-diversity and eco-tourism, is an excellent complement to the rest of the CARICOM region’s sun and sand tourism, therefore the need exists for multi-destination options. He stressed that there needs to be more options for travelers, better connections and reliability in order to support Guyana’s tourism development drive.

Destination Guyana represents a very important market for LIAT and one that the company is keen on growing.
