Scores of young people in Guyana were given an opportunity to learn about the emerging oil and gas sector and how they can position themselves to benefit from opportunities.

This was done through the hosting of the second round of a youth engagement on oil and gas sector forum, this time with emphasis placed on training.

The event was organized by the Department of Youth and took place at the Cliff Anderson Sports Complex, Homestretch Avenue, Georgetown, Guyana.

Head of the Department of Energy, Dr. Mark Bynoe, urged the young people to position themselves for the opportunities to come. “You need to learn and understand the sector so that you can develop skills that are in demand,” he told those gathered.
