The reception to celebrate the 52nd independence anniversary of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana was held at its embassy in Beijing on May 29, 2018. Ambassador of Guyana, Mr. Bayney Karran, representatives of the Chinese government and other embassies along with the guests from companies and organizations had all attended the ceremony.

"Guyana" is a word, which means "Land of Many Waters." The country is so named due to its numerous rivers, creeks and waterfalls. The first Europeans to settle were the Dutch who traded with Native Indians and began cultivating cotton and sugar cane in the 17th Century.

For more than 100 years Guyana was colonized by Holland, France and England as they competed for ownership of Guyana and other territories in the region. Eventually, Great Britain had gained overall control in 1814 and named the territory British Guiana. It remained a colony until achieving its independence in 1966. The country's name was then changed to Guyana. In 1970, Guyana became a Republic, officially named the Cooperative Republic of Guyana. It is the only English speaking country among the twelve countries of South America.

Mr. Bayney Karran said, "Guyana and China have been willing and dependable allies on the consistent and mutual bases, this partnership can be further cemented while simultaneously securing Guyana's future development. China is welcomed to participate in new projects in developing Guyana's agriculture, minerals, forestry, energy, infrastructure, technology and tourism."
