Guyana Virtual Trade Mission and Webinar Series

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

With over 10 billion barrels of oil discovered and potentially seven FPSOs expected by ExxonMobil by 2026, Guyana holds a wealth of opportunity for the oil & gas supply and service sector.

For the last three years, Noia has helped companies avail of these opportunities through information sessions and trade missions. The 2021 mission to Guyana will be held virtually with a series of webinars and virtual B2Bs.

DAI has been contracted to provide matchmaking and business support to companies participating in this mission. DAI manages the Centre for Local Business Development in Georgetown, Guyana and works directly with Guyanese suppliers to support them in entering the oil & gas supply chain. The Centre also has an extensive database of Guyanese oil & gas suppliers in the country and a full, local team dedicated to the oil & gas industry.

Leading up to the trade mission, Noia will be offering two webinars about doing business in Guyana.

1) Tax Landscape Webinar
