The Foreign Ministries of Taiwan and Guyana reached a consensus for the establishment of a Taiwan Office in the Cooperative Republic of Guyana. An agreement was signed by both sides on January 11, 2021. 

The Taiwan Office initiated operations provisionally on January 15, and is currently in the process of acquiring suitable accommodation. Under the agreement, should Guyana decide eventually to set up an office of equal status in Taiwan, similar conditions and privileges as the Taiwan Office in Guyana shall apply.

The Cooperative Republic of Guyana is situated on the Northeastern part of South America, has abundant oil reserves and minerals, and its capital Georgetown hosts the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat. (E)
