In his remarks, Ambassador Yu Wenzhe said, China’s economy At the present has become the second-largest economy in the world, but the ranking of per capita GDP is well over 100, in other words, it is only about 45% of the world average, and one-tenth that of the developed countries. That’s why China is still a developing country. China and Guyana have over the years conducted fruitful “win-win” economic cooperation projects and the two sides are currently exploring the potential in electric power, agriculture and ICT industry. The Ambassador then assured that the Chinese Government will continue to encourage and support the credible Chinese companies to come and look for opportunities of investment and cooperation in Guyana.
