Transborder cooperation between Guyana and Brazil is a fairly recent phenomenon, although these two countries shared a common history for many centuries. There has been a strong affinity on the cultural level with the territory of Amapá, in the far north of Brazil. A book fair, two cultural weeks and many exchanges have taken place during the last two years. The Danielle Mitterrand French language centre was inaugurated in 1999. This activity is facilitated by the good rapport that exists between the foreign policy of France and the particular interests of the Guyanese region. Taking into consideration the problems common to Amapá and French Guyana, it can be maintained that this fledging experience will indeed become a reality.
