President urges more help from developed countries for pandemic recovery

President Irfaan Ali


Saying Guyana is “deeply concerned” over the widening development gap between rich and poor countries as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, President Irfaan Ali yesterday issued a call for more systems to be put in place to aid countries struggling to rebound from the effects.

“Guyana would therefore like to take this opportunity to urge developed countries and international financial institutions to immediately revisit and reform the existing international debt framework, so as to make it more responsive to developing countries’ needs,” Ali said while speaking during a virtual meeting of Heads of State and Government on the International Debt Architecture and Liquidity, convened by United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, together with Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Jamaica Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
