The Caribbean Initiative at the Atlantic Council hosted on September 14, 2023, an #ACFrontPage conversation with Guyanese President Irfaan Ali.
Guyana is rapidly emerging as a regional and global leader. The country’s growing energy sector, track record of protecting its environment, and role in strengthening food security for the Caribbean have catapulted Guyana into spotlight. With this growing international platform, opportunities exist to shape global decision making and outcomes from world events.
Ali discussed plans to expand Guyana’s leadership and influence worldwide, in the hopes of cementing a place for itself and other Small Island Developing States on the global stage.
The Caribbean Initiative at the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center was pleased to present this event as part of the #ACFrontPage event series, our premier ideas platform spotlighting global leaders and championing constructive solutions to global challenges.
