Welcome to The Guyana High Commission London

 

Guyana, officially the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, is a sovereign state on the northern mainland of South America. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the north, Brazil to the south and southwest, Suriname to the east and Venezuela to the west. However, it is often considered part of the Caribbean region because of its strong cultural, historical, and political ties with other Anglo-Caribbean countries and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

Guyana, which is 83,000 square miles, is the only South American nation in which English is the official language. The name Guyana is an Amerindian word meaning “Land of Many Waters”.

Guyana is a multi-ethnic society with a population of 746,955 (2012 census). Its main economic activities are agriculture, mining, timber, and fishing. In 2015 the first of several significant deep water oil discoveries were found, which will have a significant effect on the country’s economy.

More than 80% of Guyana is still covered by forest. It’s tropical climate, unique geology, and relatively pristine ecosystems support extensive areas of species-rich rain forests and natural habitats.

Recently the Government of Guyana has identified the concept of a Green Economy to advance the sustainable development of the resources of the country. This concept not only responds to current global realities on climate change but also offers the promise of a diversified growth strategy that utilises the country’s rich natural resources.
