Most of Guyana’s industries, apart from mining, are closely linked to agriculture. In the factories, in particular, sugar cane, rice, tobacco and coconuts are processed.
The manufacturing industry is entirely focused on the domestic market and suffers from foreign competition, high electricity costs and insufficient infrastructure. The most successful industry is in the production of beer, soft drinks and rum.
