Of course the pessimists, economic experts and doomsday news bearers will not want you to know, that despite the picture of negativity which they continue to paint, Guyana continues to fear well in the latest assessment by the Millennium Challenge Corporation(M.C.C).
The Millennium Challenge Corporation or M.C.C as it is called, is an innovative and independent US foreign aid agency created by the US Congress in 2004 that is helping lead the fight against global poverty.
The selection of countries as eligible for MCC assistance is determined by MCC's Board of Directors . Transparency regarding the process and criteria that govern selection of country partners and that inform the Board’s eventual decisions is a hallmark of the MCC model.
