The business community is an important part of the national development project.“We don’t just have a duty to build our businesses; we have a duty to improve the society around us. In Guyana, this is not a luxury choice. It is a necessity.“Business cannot thrive unless we have an enabling and flourishing environment in which we ourselves can flourish. The Chamber recognizes this and the importance of working for the common good.”One of the highlights of each year’s programme is the feature address usually delivered by a giant in the world of Business.

That award was clinched by the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company who rolled out a massive internet and connectivity upgrade over the last year, not the least of which was the Emagine campaign.
