Guyana and the IDB: Partners for Progress

Aug 2010
This document provides a sample of the extensive work that analyzes what Guyana and the IDB have done together. Divided into three main sections, this publication investigates the main development activities and results since 1977, with an emphasis on the last 10 years. First, the publication reviews the country's development history and analyzes the instruments the IDB used to support it. The document then explores the contributions of the Guyana-IDB partnership in unlocking development bottlenecks across different areas, including (1) infrastructure; (2) state reform, competitiveness, and private sector development; and (3) social sectors. Last, the publication looks toward the second decade of the 21st century, considering the appropriate strategy for Guyana's progression and the complementary role the IDB must play to remain relevant in this development journey.
