Statement by Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter Upon His Arrival in Guyana


CONTACT: Julie Zollmann

GEORGETOWN, GUYANA…I want to thank President Jagdeo for his invitation and look forward to meeting with him, Robert Corbin, and members of Guyanese civil society. I have a deep personal interest in Guyana and believe the basic integrity of its political, social, and economic systems must be made more responsive to the needs and aspirations of all Guyanese. The purpose of my visit is to assess whether The Carter Center can make a further contribution to this need. At the close of my visit, I will hold a press conference.

Editor's Note: President Carter will hold a press conference Friday, Aug. 13 at the Pegasus Hotel at 4:30 p.m. Only accredited media will be admitted.
