Guyana’s Minister of Public Works Juan Edghill and Minister of Aviation in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Senator Sirika Hadi have met and held discussions on several matters of mutual interest including tourism, aviation, infrastructural development and strengthening bilateral relations.

The two Ministers connected at the thirteenth ICAO Air Services Negotiation (ICAN2021) event being held between December 6-10, 2021 in Colombia.

During talks, they agreed to expedite their respective internal procedures to facilitate the signing of an Air Services Agreement which was negotiated in 2014, to promote and facilitate airlines of both countries to operate and connect the two continents, which will lead to greater socio-economic benefits to their peoples and economies.

With infrastructural developmental works in aviation, Guyana is working towards becoming the hub that connects Africa to the rest of the Caribbean and South America.
