During a debriefing session with local media Mr. Fong, who is also one of Canada’s culinary ambassadors, expressed his belief that Guyana has a bright future in food tourism.
“I think Guyana’s tourism has great potential; their culture and culinary background varies,” he said, adding:
“Seeing the vast richness of their cultural background; the Chinese, East Indians, African, it’s a melting pot of cuisines.”
The tour was also made possible through the support of the Marriott International, and the Ramada Georgetown Princess Hotel as well as the Guyana Tourism Authority.
