The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) plans to close its Mission in Guyana in Fiscal Year 2012 in the coming months as part of cost-cutting measures, the embassy here announced Tuesday.
The embassy further explained that the closure was part of a USAID's worldwide strategy, in a tight budgetary environment, to be more efficient in the management of its aid resources

The embassy assured that the closing of the USAID Mission would not signal the end of the agency’s relationship with Guyana.
