Across Guyana, citizens are benefitting from the growth of Guyana’s economy through better jobs, more money in their pockets, and an improved standard of living. This progress has been secured through policies spearheaded by President David Granger.
In 2018 alone, the APNU+AFC government attracted almost US$500M in foreign investment, including in oil and gas, construction, and agro-processing. Thousands of jobs have been created for Guyanese as a result of this investment, enabling development in communities across the country.
Guyana’s economy expanded 4.1% during 2018, hitting an all-time high of $689B, the fastest growth in the region.
“We reduced the income-tax rate and increased the income tax threshold by a minimum of 20 percent – measures which boosted our working people’s disposable income. The corporation tax rate for manufacturing and non-commercial companies [has been reduced] from 30 percent to 27.5 percent,” President Granger has said.
This is the first step. There is more to do and we need your support to continue the progress. Together, let’s keep Guyana moving forward.
