Georgetown, Guyana – (August 19, 2020) His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali has received a congratulatory letter from the Barbados Prime Minister, Honourable Mia Amor Mottley, Q.C., M.P., who expressed a desire to further strengthen relations between the two nations.

In her letter, Prime Minister Mottley states: “I am confident that under your leadership Guyana will pursue ways of addressing the many challenges that will confront it, particularly in a post-COVID-19 era.”

The Prime Minister further noted that Barbados regards highly the long-binding ties between the two nations.

“Barbados highly regards the deep and lasting ties that exist between our two countries and which bind us both bilaterally and as sister members of the Caribbean Community. Guyanese have long contributed to the development of Barbados since before our independence, as Barbadians have contributed to the development of Guyana. Our collaboration is therefore natural and well-founded in our shared history,” she said.

Prime Minster Mottley further said she is looking forward to meeting soon with President Ali “to discuss ways in which we could further strengthen our relationship. The people and government of Barbados wish you, your family and the government and people of Guyana good health as we continue to battle the COVID- 9 pandemic.”
