Guyana to establish gold jewellery hub in Barbados

May 6th, 2022

Jewellers from Guyana are optimistic about the establishment of a gold jewellery hub in Barbados.

The initiative is part of the St. Barnabas Accord signed between Barbados’ Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley and Guyana’s President, Dr. Irfaan Ali.

The gold jewellery hub will see up to 15 jewellers from Guyana establishing stores at a prominent mall.

Several jewellers visited Barbados over the weekend to view the proposed locations for the hub and to meet with officials of Export Barbados and the Central Bank.

Visits were also made to several established jewellery outlets in Barbados.

The jewellers say there’s a high demand for gold in Barbados and the quality and creativity of the jewellery produced in Guyana is of particular interest to residents of Barbados and tourists.
