Guyana Development Initiative
JAA, in collaboration Dr. Michael Porter, has been providing overall economic technical services to the Government of Guyana including the President, Vice-President, Minister of Finance, Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce among other Guyanese leaders related to industry competitiveness, economic policy, foreign investment attraction, ecotourism, tourism workforce development, agriculture, and related areas. The project has provided over 100 specific policy and institutional reform recommendations including specific legislation reflecting global best practices. JAA has identified specific global experts as well as HQ-based expertise. Guyana had the highest GDP growth of any country in the world thanks to recent discoveries and exports of natural resources which it is using to invest in education, health, economic diversification, renewable energy, forest conservation, and community-led ecotourism.
