The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) said Monday it is pleased to announce its partnership with the Guyana Oil & Gas Energy Chamber (GOGEC) as an organizing partner for the upcoming Guyana Energy Conference & Exhibition (GEC-X).

The GCCI is also pleased to announce its supporting partners for the conference including the Guyana Manufacturing & Services Association (GMSA), the Private Sector Commission of Guyana (PSC) and the Tourism and Hospitality Association (THAG).

The GEC-X, now slated for February 14 and 15, 2022, seeks to embrace full local content in its planning, organizing, production and delivery.

“The partnership of the GCCI with GOGEC, and with support from the GMSA, the PSC and the THAG, creates the first locally organized and executed Energy Conference in the history of Guyana,” the Chamber said.

This watershed moment is buttressed by the Conference’s use of local suppliers which will ensure that maximum benefit accrues to the local private sector through ensuring in-country value retention.

Further, all surpluses made from the conference will remain in the coffers of the local Business Support Organizations (BSOs). This will be channeled towards supporting the organizations’ private sector development programmes and continued work to lift the standards and capacity of the local private sector.

“The GCCI, GOGEC and other local private sector umbrella organizations anticipate this conference, our signature event, to have overwhelming support as we seek to drive national development in partnership,” the Chamber said.

GEC-X, at its launch in February this year, received the full endorsement and support of the Guyana government, ExxonMobil and several other key stakeholders.
