Ambassador Lynch Visits Corriverton to Discuss Fishing, Economic Development

Building on the U.S. commitment to Guyana’s prosperity, Ambassador Lynch made a trip to Region Six and met with the Mayor of Corriverton, the Upper Corentyne Fisherman’s coop, Alumni from U.S. Government exchange programs, and members of the Upper Corentyne Chamber of Commerce.  “It was an educational experience to learn from local fishermen about their challenges with illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing.  This is an important issue of sovereignty and sustainability for Guyana, and the United States offers it partnership to help Guyana monitor its resource.  The people along the Corentyne River basin recognize the important economic and environmental consequences of IUU,” said the Ambassador.
