Guyana Sugar Action Plan
The Policy Practice provided a consultant to assist in the preparation of Guyana’s National Action Plan to mitigate the effects of the reform of the EU sugar regime. The impact of the 36% cut in the EU price of sugar will be particularly severe in Guyana because the economy is highly dependent on sugar. In response, the Government of Guyana is seeking financial assistance from the European Union. Gareth Williams worked closely with the Government of Guyana and the Guyana Sugar Corporation Inc to prepare an action plan for the use of these funds.
