We explore a topic of paramount significance – human capital training and development within the context of the emerging Guyanese oil and gas economy. The discovery of oil and gas reserves in our country has ushered in a new era of economic potential and opportunity. However, with this newfound wealth comes the responsibility to ensure that our workforce is equipped with the knowledge, skills, and expertise to harness and manage these valuable resources responsibly and sustainably. In a rapidly evolving global landscape, investment in human capital is the linchpin of any nation’s success. Our human resources will drive innovation, navigate challenges, and chart the course for our country’s prosperity in the oil and gas sector. This symposium served as a platform to explore strategies, share insights, and chart a roadmap for the holistic development of Guyana’s human capital.
