Our vision is a Guyana where everyone has the opportunity to participate and contribute to the economic, social and political development. This requires our lawmakers to adopt smart policies and make strategic public investment to create a modern education system, from primary to secondary, bring employment and affordable housing opportunities with the reach of individuals and families, and create safe, clean and vibrant communities. An economy where people who work hard can build a future; a country that’s a good place to raise a family and run a business; provide adequate social protection for our seniors and families struggling to make ends meet, and create a strong foundation for sustainable economic growth.
We conduct our work with the highest level of professional and intellectual honestly, accuracy and objectivity to ensure our work effectively informs public policies.
We provide evidence-based and non-political analysis of budget, economic and social policies and their impact on all Guyanese families, with specials emphasis on low- and middle-income families.
Educate and Empower
Our work seeks to educate and empower all Guyanese by providing readily available, easy-to-read, and timely analysis and information on public policies to encourage greater civic engagements and more informed national policy debates.
GBPI is a non-partisan and not-for-profit organization that promotes evidence-based and commonsense budget, tax and economic policies for building a strong and vibrant economy that provides opportunities for all Guyanese.
Fairness and Equity
Our work is founded on the premise that the government should work to improve the well-being of all Guyanese. We maintain a strong commitment to ensuring that government policies and public programs meet the needs of lower income families and communities struggling across Guyana.
