GUYANA COUNTRY SURVEY 2015
Tuesday, May 12, 2015

The Co-operative Republic of Guyana is a sovereign state located on the northeastern coast of the South American continent, bordered by Venezuela to the west, Suriname to the southeast and Brazil to the South. Guyana has been an active member of the GATT since 1990, is a founding member of the World Trade Organization and does a fair amount of trade within the CARICOM region. Guyana’s Bureau of Statistics reports that the country sources most of its CARICOM imports from Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados, while most of its CARICOM exports go to Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica. Guyana grants duty-free access on imports from other CARICOM countries and EC Member States, provided they meet the various rules of origin. There are a small number of exceptions (ginger, curry, beer, spirits, etc.), which are subject to tariffs between 5% and 10%.
