Guyana has been promoting the coconut sector as an industry to capture the array of products including coconut water, virgin coconut oil, activated carbon and crafts that could be competitively produced.

This was related by Dr. Oudho Homenauth, Chief Executive Officer of the National Agricultural Research & Extension Institute (NAREI), during a recent interview with the Government Information Agency at his Mon Repos Office, East Coast Demerara.

According to Dr. Homenauth, coconut has been the main non-traditional export for Guyana for the past few years, generating an annual income of US$4.5M. The exports have been dominated by products containing minimal value addition.
