Under the leadership of President Ali, the economic growth of Guyana has shown a positive approach and won the title of the fastest growing economy in the world.

The release highlighted the role of President Ali as the guest of honor in the celebrations of the 45th anniversary of the independence of Saint Lucia. This shows the importance of diplomatic exchange between the two island nations in recent times to achieve their future goals.

The event is scheduled to take place at the Harbor Club from 12.30 pm and promises to provide Saint Lucian business leaders with insights and perspectives on the growing economy of Guyana. Reportedly, the initiative has the potential to enrich the participants and understand the opportunities ahead in Guyana and its potential impact on regional economic dynamics.

According to the reports, the rich oils of Guyana have boosted its economy and can also solve the energy issues of Saint Lucia. The oil production per day increased to 645 thousand barrels last year, which also increased the revenues for the government, which is 1.6 billion dollars in total.

This economic growth has taken Guyana from one of the lowest productive economies in the region to the fastest growing economy in the world over the last five years. The economic growth also came with tensions in the region which was the border dispute with neighbouring nation Venezuela.

As per the statements of political experts, the discovery of oil reserves in the Essequibo region raised an old dispute in which Venezuela claimed ownership of the region which is now in the control of Guyana. Even after the ongoing dispute, Guyana found a solution through international relations, and now the dispute is awaiting a verdict from the International Court of Justice.

President Ali and his upcoming statements will bring more clarity about the growing importance of regional cooperation and economic integration with Saint Lucia and also within the Caribbean community.

As Saint Lucian business leaders are ready and waiting to discuss the vision of President Ali, the event also will be a key moment to explore opportunities for collaboration and harness the economic potential of the Caribbean and its diverse landscapes.
