GUYANA REGIONAL AND BILATERAL TRADE AND INVESTMENT AGREEMENTS

Guyana (then British Guiana), together with Barbados and Antigua, was a founding member of the Caribbean Free-
Trade Area (CARIFTA) Agreement signed in 1965. The Agreement was renewed in 1968 with Trinidad and Tobago
as an additional founding member.

In 1972, the leaders of the then seven Caribbean member countries decided to transform CARIFTA into a Common
Market. Under the Treaty of Chaguaramas signed by Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago, the
Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM) came into effect on 1 August 1973.

For more information on doing business with CARICOM, see
CARICOM: Very Useful Websites for Trade and
Investment.

The Website of Guyana’s Ministry of Foreign Trade & International Cooperation  provides links to Trade and
Investments Agreements signed between Guyana and other nations, as listed on the next page.
