Guyana President to Attend UN and Arab-South America Meetings
Guyana’s President Donald Ramotar will for the first time address the UN General Assembly, on September 27th, since taking office in Georgetown.
Shortly after that he will travel to Peru at the end of September to participate in the third Arab South American Summit from October 1st to 2nd.
The Guyana foreign ministry has not yet made public the makeup of the Guyanese delegations to these meetings.
However, the Guyana Mission to the UN and a spokesman at the Embassy of Peru in Washington have both confirmed Ramotar’s participation.
A meeting of over 400 Arab and South American business leaders is expected in Lima, and a meeting of representatives of the Arab Investment Fund is also being organized by the Inter-American Development Bank.
Host country Peru recently opened three embassies in the Middle East to expand commercial ties with the region.
