The main objectives of the projects are:
1. To improve the transport link between Guyana and Brazil in order to increase trade and promote greater cultural exchanges between the two countries;
2. to stimulate greater economic development of the 'hinterland' regions of Guyana and the State of Roaraima of Brazil, through improved access to the export markets of North and Central America and the Caribbean via Guyana's port facilities, and
3. to create a North-South transport link, which will provide a complete integration of the countries in the Guyana Shield Hub if complimented by an East-West transport link passing through Venezuela, Guyana, Surinam and French Guyana.
