The 2024 Summit aims to bring together policymakers, regulatory and support agencies and organizations, educators, operators and sub-contractors, industry experts, vendors/suppliers, investors, and the local private sector, among other stakeholders. 

The agenda includes insights from various speakers through presentations, panel discussions, and testimonials, focusing on crucial aspects of the Local Content Act, such as supply chain management, procurement strategies, employment policies, capacity development initiatives, and market analysis. Organizers say the goal is to equip attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the benefits of Local Content certification and strategies to leverage current and upcoming opportunities.

Guyana’s Local Content Act was legislated at the end of 2021, mandating the utilization of Guyanese goods and services across 40 sectors. Since its inception, the Act has resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars being secured for Guyanese businesses.
