Guyana is a midsized country in terms of area, with about 215000 sq.kilometres. However in terms of population, it is a very small country with a population of only about 750000 which works out to a density of less than 4 people per sqkm. The world average is about 14 people per sq.km. Guyana has fertile land, receives good amount of rainfall with a number of perennial rivers.The country can easily sustain a population of over 10 million, but unfortunately, the population is declining by about 0.5%.(mainly due to migration to USA, Canada)every year. This is why,the country is unable to exploit its natural resources like land, rainfall, bauxite, gold etc. Its per capita income is only about US$7000/- Guyana can raise its per capita income to about uS$15000/- within a short period of about 5 years, if the goverment leases out just 2 million hectares of its land to foreigners.The population may increase to about 1 million and the GDP would go up to about 15000 million.
