President David Granger will be in the United Kingdom for the rest of the week on an official visit. The President will meet Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle on Wednesday as part of the visit.
In a statement from the Ministry of the Presidency, it was stated that President Granger will also attend the Caribbean Council’s Annual Reception at the House of Lords.
He will deliver an address at that reception, which will be held on Tuesday evening.
The Annual Reception provides an opportunity for British Members of Parliament, the Diplomatic community, members of the UK civil service, non-governmental organisations, members of the Caribbean diaspora and businesses invested in or interested in investing in the Caribbean region to network, with a view to supporting the region’s economic development.
President Granger, who is accompanied on the visit by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Carl Greenidge, will also meet with members of the UK Government, the British business community and the Guyanese diaspora in London during the official visit.
The President left Guyana on Sunday with the national media only learning of his departure on Sunday evening.
