Georgetown, Guyana – (June 30, 2016) President David Granger, today, met with Guyana‘s new Ambassador to Brazil, Mr. George Talbot. He replaces Ambassador Merlin Udho. He is scheduled to arrive in Brazil on July 31.
Ambassador Talbot in a brief comment said that Guyana shares excellent diplomatic relations with Brazil. He noted that while the two countries share an extensive border, their ties remain friendly and peaceful.
“We have very good cooperation at multiple levels…We have a good basis on which to build. There are important expectations for the future for our relations in terms of where Guyana sits vis-a-vis Brazil and the country’s own possibilities for trade, investment and expansion for its own economic space,” Ambassador Talbot said.
