In light of this, the Private Sector bodies are in full support with regards to planning the event and sponsorship.More than sixty exhibitors will be on display throughout the entire indoor conference area of the Guyana Marriott Hotel. Participating businesses will represent various business sectors in Guyana including Agro-processing, Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals, Construction, Food & Beverage, Food Processing, Forestry and Wood Products, Information and Communications, Print and Publishing, Printing and Packaging, Tourism, Arts and Craft, and other services.Buyers have also registered from around the globe, from as far away as India and Korea, and will be here as Guyana signals that it is “Open for Business”. Buyers from Trinidad and Tobago, Belize, Haiti, Barbados, Jamaica, Cuba and Brazil are also registered to be there and will be looking for avenues to interact with the business community in Guyana. The opportunities for business linkages, sales and promotion are nothing but far-reaching, allowing businesses to tangibly benefit from the interactions during the event.The Steering Committee has expressed confidence that the Public/Private Sector partnerships, which have resulted in GuyTIE being created, will benefit Guyana in a major way. These partnerships will create incentives for the Private Sector to develop their export capability. It will also develop the sector to provide a better service and open up markets for joint venture participation.
