China has agreed to loan Guyana US$36.5 million to aid with the extension of the Guyana National Broadband Project, a three-year endeavor that seeks to bolster the country’s internet connectivity.

The project includes a network upgrade to “enable equitable delivery of service in education through e-classrooms, health, security through the provision of CCTV cameras, business and other sectors”, according to  Carl Greenidge (pictured, left), Minister of Foreign Affairs, as cited by local daily Stabroek News.

It also includes the construction of an additional data center and improvements to the government’s network capacity.
