GUYANA NEEDS IMMIGRANTS TO SUSTAIN ECONOMIC GROWTH

Guyana is expected to attract at least 160,000 additional skilled workers to sustain the economic growth brought on by the exploration and development of its oil and gas resources.

This finding is based on a new report by the Migration Policy Institute, MPI as the country moves to become one of the world’s largest oil and gas-based economies.

MPI estimates that even if Guyana were to harness all unemployed, underemployed and discouraged workers, domestic supply would only amount to 63,500 workers.

Guyana is plagued by a shortage of skilled workers as most of its highly trained workforce has migrated.
