Politically and diplomatically, the mission of a number of ministers to the United States of America was a continuation of the activities carried out since this administration assumed its duties. This mission also aims to further support the country’s political and financial reputation, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Business and International Cooperation (BIBIS) said during a press conference in Zoom about the mission to the United States.
He explained that in the past six to seven months there were virtual meetings where there was a lot of understanding and support for the Surinamese reality, and more than that was the policy of achieving a healthy economy. “After many Zoom meetings, it was necessary to have face-to-face conversations with the authorities and agencies,” says Ramdin.
The visit of Minister Armand Achaibersing from Finance and Planning, David Abiyamovo from Natural Resources (NH), Ramden is accompanied, among others, Anand Jajsar, General Manager of Staatsolie, related to the talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). They visited three cities from April 20-30, namely Miami, Houston and Washington.
Ramadin indicated that the opportunity was used in each city to speak to the different authorities. Specific and targeted talks were held with US administrative authorities, representatives of international and regional financial institutions, and representatives of the corporate and banking world. The ultimate goal is to achieve economic recovery.
