Update on Guyana
Guyana’s 2020 general election has illustrated the country’s increasingly contested political landscape. Against a background of significant offshore oil reserve discoveries in 2015, ongoing uncertainty over Guyana's democratic process leaves the stage unset for the country's potentially major economic transformation.
Canning House are pleased to bring together a panel to update our audience on Guyanese current affairs. We will hear how the country’s politics reached this point of tension, how the equivalent of billions of barrels of offshore oil could affect its economy in the coming years, and what this all means for Guyana’s government and society.
