Strengthening the capacity of Guyana’s local labour market remains critical as work progresses in Guyana’s burgeoning Oil and Gas sector, and so Guyana’s government, in recognizing this, plans to afford Guyanese the opportunity to access technical training through scholarships to a German institute.

Several international stakeholders, after recognising that Guyana’s institutional capacity to manage and oversee the oil and gas sector is limited, have encouraged the government to enhance its capacity in order to properly inherit the potential direct and indirect opportunities.

Instead of hiring expatriates, there are plans to afford Guyanese the opportunity to access technical training and be equipped to service the sector. A sum of G$1 billion is budgeted this year to support online scholarships to be granted in 2021.
