THE 24th Meeting of Military Exchange between Guyana and Brazil concluded on Thursday with agreement on a number of new understandings aimed at advancing co-operation in areas of mutual concern.

Among them, heightened simultaneous patrolling along the border strip aimed at curbing ever-present cross-border criminal activities such as illegal mining, illegal airstrips, drug trafficking, illegal border crossing and the effects of climate change.

Both delegations, in their presentations, found common ground and challenges, resulting in the recognition of the need for the development of a stronger mechanism for communication and coordination against these events.

The discussions were fruitful and allowed for both sides to examine and share strategies and agree on the way forward.
Brigadier-General, Adriano Fructuoso, Commander of the first Jungle Infantry Brigade, said he felt that the meeting has achieved its objectives.
He was confident that the new understandings will be executed.

Brigadier-General Fructuoso also expressed his appreciation for the warm welcome which his team received from the GDF, which he said was testament to the strong bonds of friendship and good relations between the two nations.

“You have a friend in Brazil and I wish your institution well as it works towards achieving all of its objectives,” he assured the delegation of GDF Officers.

In response, Commandant of the Guyana People’s Militia, Colonel Trevon Bowman, who led the local delegation, said he was satisfied with the conduct of the meeting and gave personal assurances that he will spare no effort in ensuring that the good relationship which the two armies share is solidified and advanced.

“You accepted our invitation during these difficult times and we have come here and we have met our objectives. This is evidence of the enduring nature of our friendship,” he asserted.

The officers exchanged gifts and tokens of appreciation at the conclusion of the meeting.
The 25th meeting of Military Exchange is scheduled to be held in Brazil next year.
