Brazil bridges Guyana gap

GUYANA, BRAZIL // The economic prospects of Guyana and Brazil have received a significant boost with the planned opening on September 14 of a bridge between Guyana and Brazil over the Takutu River. Built by the Brazilian government, the bridge is capable of transporting heavy vehicles and is the first step to creating infrastructure to allow Brazilian companies to transport goods to markets in North America and Europe. Guyanese businesses are also planning to use the bridge to transport more of their goods into Brazil.
