June 28, 2024

Barbados has told the Organisation of American States that citizens of this hemisphere rely on it to provide solutions to crises impacting member countries.

Director General of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Ambassador Donna Forde shared the challenges of small island developing states before a plenary session – part of the ongoing 54th General Assembly of the OAS in Paraguay.

She says Barbados anticipates the endorsement of the goals of the OAS will be met with the commensurate support of members individually, collectively and financially.

Ms. Forde says the solutions must be proactive, visionary and strategic.

Barbados also added its voice to the international chorus condemning the attempted coup in Bolivia.

Focusing on Haiti, Ambassador Forde urged the OAS to continue to play a supporting role in that country’s development.

She says Barbados is pleased the situation in Haiti is turning the corner with the installation of President Garry Conille and his government.
