Published on June 12, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (GINA) -- Guyana’s tourism minister Irfaan Ali and his counterpart Cecil McKie, minister of tourism of St Vincent and the Grenadines on Tuesday discussed formalising a joint initiative to market the two countries as a common tourism package.

The Caribbean islands are known for their wonderful beaches, sunshine and waters whilst Guyana is a fantastic destination for eco-tourists and nature lovers.

Both ministers concurred that combining the two products would make both destinations more competitive and appealing on the international market.

Towards this end, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Guyana are in the process of improving their international airports; whilst Guyana is implementing an essential upgrade of its facilities.

Ali and McKie spoke of the immense potential these facilities will fulfill for the two countries. In praising Guyana’s recent successes in this area, McKie was especially delighted at the possibility of having similar arrangements with COPA on the completion of their new airport.
