Guyana Threshold Program

The Guyana Threshold Program's end date was February 24, 2010. The Threshold Program is now closed.

MCC’s two-year, $6.7 million Threshold Program with Guyana sought to improve Guyana’s performance on MCC’s Fiscal Policy indicator. Specifically, the grant helped the government implement its new value-added tax (VAT) system and assisted and educated taxpayers, while also helping the government better plan and control spending. The grant helped streamline the business registration process and reduced the number of days and costs associated with starting a business.
