Gerry Gouveia, executive director of the Guyanese charter company Roraima Airways, calculated the number of Cubans and estimated that their purchases amount to 150 million dollars a year. Gouveia saw a business opportunity in Guyana as a provider of the private sector in Cuba.
Guyana, which has a slow economy, has seen an opportunity in the interest of Cubans to obtain products there. The Commission for the Private Sector of the South American country would have planned a trip to Havana to create a bilateral council for the development of businesses, with the participation of the private sector and the government.
