Guyana’s private sector organisations recently met with ExxonMobil Guyana’s newly appointed President, Alistair Routledge, and Deedra Moe, the company’s Senior Director, Public and Government Affairs.
Shyam Nokta, President of the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association; Captain Gerry Gouveia, Chairman of the Private Sector Commission and Nicholas Deygoo-Boyer, President of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry, raised key issues of mutual interest including local content, collaboration with Business Support Organisations, pipeline projects by ExxonMobil and continued support by company.
Guyana’s private sector bodies represent a myriad of micro, small, medium-sized and large companies that are active contributors to the country’s economic activities and growth. With the advent of the oil and gas sector, they have wasted no time in trying to ensure that their members benefit from the emerging opportunities.
In this regard, businesses have been investing in retooling, retrofitting and reenergising their operations for greater representation within the sector.
Routledge officially took up his new post as President of ExxonMobil Guyana in July, after serving in a similar role in Qatar over the past six years.
