New Delhi: Guyanese Vice President Bharrat Jagdeo called on India President Droupadi Murmu at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Friday, February 24.

President Murmu welcomed Vice President Jagdeo to Rashtrapati Bhavan and noted that trade between Guyana and India is expanding. "Despite the pandemic, bilateral trade scaled up by nearly 300 percent in 2021–2022. The bilateral commerce needs to be increasingly diversified. She continued by saying that for the last 180 years, Guyana had served as a home for Indian sisters and brothers. Although India and Guyana are geographically far apart, they share a number of characteristics, including a colonial past, primarily agricultural and rural economies, and multicultural societies.

The development partnership, she said, is a crucial tenet of India-Guyana ties. "So far, more than 640 members of the Guyana government have received training under our ITEC programme. The historical connection between the two nations will be strengthened by Vice President Bharrat Jagdeo's visit. India and Guyana have cordial relations with a high level of understanding. Periodic Joint Commissions, Foreign Office Consultations, the Cultural Exchange Program, and ITEC are used to structure the engagement.

Indian businesses have recently expressed a greater interest in forestry and mining. Some Indian businesses have purchased farmland for the cultivation of fruits, vegetables, pulses, and other crops like maize. Several people have made investments in the fields of healthcare and education.
