Georgetown – U.S. Ambassador Sarah-Ann Lynch addressed members of the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) at a recent meeting of the group.

OSAC’s mission is to build cooperation between the public and private sectors to address security issues in Guyana.

In her remarks, Ambassador Lynch said that focusing on safety and security helps put a country on the path to prosperity. “Nothing says consumer confidence,” she said, “like a safe place to live and raise a family.” She assured the OSAC members that the U.S. Embassy is prepared to work with OSAC to connect Guyana’s leadership with U.S. experts who can provide guidance on security issues.
