Organisation d'accueil : Guyana Tourism Authority
Détails au sujet de l'organisation d'accueil : THAG is a member of the Private Sector Commission. It is an umbrella body of all Tourism related entities. The association was established in January 1991 by a number of persons working in the tourism industry. Initially called the Tourism association of Guyana (TAG), its main aim was to lobby the Government of Guyana to create a Tourism Board as a legal entity. Early 1999, TAG evolved into The Tourism & Hospitality Association of Guyana (THAG) in recognition of the magnitude of the industry. THAG has steadily pursued partnership with the Government in developing and expanding the many aspects of the tourism industry, including eco-tourism, the generic marketing, as well as positioning individual members locally, regionally and internationally, and in introducing and maintaining the highest standards with operators in the industry.

Mandate:
1. To foster both foreign and local goodwill toward the tourism industry.
2. To market the tourism product of the country locally, regionally and internationally.
3. To work with government to establish and maintain standards for the industry.
4. To promote legislation that will benefit, improve and expand the tourism industry in Guyana.

THAG and the Government of Guyana (GOG), and its Ministry of Tourism, Industry & Commerce, have today built a strong alliance to promote and develop Guyana's many environmental, natural and cultural attributes as a tourism destination.
