In order to achieve this goal, the government of Guyana has asked the ILO to support an analysis of its vegetable and fruit sectors to identify growth and export potential, seeking to address the underlying constraints that might hinder productivity enhancement and sector growth. This sector selection report recommends two target value chains (mango and hot pepper) based on their potential for inclusive growth.
