Guyana stands to earn tens of billions of US dollars over the next two decades from developing the burgeoning oil and gas sector. What does this mean for Guyana and, importantly, the hundreds of thousands in the Diaspora? What are the pathways to our collective prosperity? To answer some of these questions, The Guyana Association of Georgia (GAOG) and the Guyanese Business Journal & Magazine (GBJ), with the support of the Caribbean Policy Consortium, hosted a public forum Navigating a Changing Guyana: Pathways to Prosperity in the Era of Oil and Gas, and cocktail reception on Wednesday, May 24th, 2023, from 4.30 p.m. at the AEI Startup Factory · 7310 Stonecrest Concourse, Lithonia, GA 30038. The free event brought together experts from the private and public sectors in Guyana and the Diaspora to engage the audience and share views on these questions. Representatives of ExxonMobil shared a Diaspora Oil & Gas Update, and our two panels examined Pathways to Prosperity & Skills Migration and Emerging Business Opportunities. Panelists included Dr.Ivelaw Griffith, Dr. Riyad Insanally, Dr. Ulric Trotz, Stacey Mollison, and Oslene Carrington.
