As the agency responsible for National Tourism Policy in Guyana, the Department of Tourism will be the entity that gives strategic direction to the tourism sector in order that Guyana may be recognized internationally, by the year 2020, as a leading destination for sustainable, nature-based tourism experiences.


It is the mission of the Department of Tourism in the Ministry of Business to raise the profile of Guyana as a tourism destination that emphasizes the development of a sustainable, and essentially, though not exclusively, nature-based product that exceeds visitor expectation while making a substantial contribution to the national economy and to the enhancement of the quality of life of all Guyanese.
