Guyana awaits Cuban experts to help revive sugar sector

Guyana awaits Cuban experts to help revive sugar sector

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Guyana’s prime minister says Cuba has pledged
to help revive the South American country’s sluggish sugar industry.

Moses Nagamootoo says Cuba will send a group of experts to advise the
government on how to rebuild its sugar sector. He made the announcement
after meeting Tuesday with Cuba’s vice president in Guyana.

No further details were provided.

Guyana is the largest sugar-producing country in the Caribbean Community
trade bloc, but it has seen a steady drop in production. The government
also says it has run out of money to pay the salaries of workers at the
state-owned Guyana Sugar Corporation.

Cuba has struggled to revive its own sugar industry, though output has
recovered somewhat since 2010’s 1.1 million tons, the lowest in a
century. It once regularly produced 6 million tons.
