On January 23, 2018, Mr. Zulfikar Ally, Mr. Clairmont Cummings, and Ms. Iman Khan met with Mr. Devindra Kissoon in his law office at London House Chambers to initiate the legal framework for the formation of AmCham Guyana. The establishment of the chamber was enthusiastically embraced by the then U.S Ambassador, Mr. Perry Holloway, and by the local private sector community. The group approached representatives of 17 prominent companies from both American and local origins, and on June 1, 2018 an interim board comprising of the initial members was installed to guide the new chamber through its first year and towards its accreditation process.
