OilNow is an online-based Information and Resource Centre which serves to complement the work of all stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in Guyana.

The newly elected Council of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) in Guyana held its first Statutory Council Meeting on Tuesday and elected a new Executive Management Committee (EMC) for the year 2021/2022. This saw former Vice President, Timothy Tucker, being elected as the Chamber’s new President.

Tucker has been a strong advocate for local content development in the new oil producing country and has signalled his intent to continue pushing for Guyanese companies to enjoy maximum benefits from the emerging oil and gas industry.

“That’s foremost on our agenda,” Tucker told OilNOW when contacted. “That is the reason why we are focusing on capacity building for members of the Chamber. We, the over 400 members that make up the GCCI, are capable of doing a lot of what is set out in the local content policy, in terms of the targets.”

He said the Chamber will continue to be the leading private sector support organisation fostering capacity building and business development for the local private sector in order to compete in the oil and gas industry and other industries that make up the Guyana economy.

“Those industries need to be developed to first-world standards,” he stated.
