A KOREA Importers Association (KOIMA) trade mission, from the Republic of Korea (ROK), is in Guyana seeking business connections with Guyanese exporters and suppliers to boost trade.

Talks between the two sides opened at a business meeting in Pegasus Hotel, Kingston, Georgetown, with 25 local participants from different sectors.

KOIMA was established in 1970 under the authority of the Ministry of Knowledge Economy and KOIMA has played a crucial role in developing the Korean economy by promoting trade.

With more than 38 years experience, it is Korea’s only private sector organisation, exclusively dedicated to facilitating imports into that country.


  1. This means more development for Guyana, another major step for our country. Over the years trade has been a major element that triggers the investment and development in Guyana. I know for a fact the suppliers and exporters would be extremely happy for this cause...and the Koreans are recommendable people in doing trade with, so I guess there wouldn’t be much hassle once both parties agrees on the stipulated laws in both countries.

  2. This is another boost for Guyana when it comes to development to the KOIMA has an interest in Guyana and our product.
