Bramble to head OAS office in Suriname

This country’s Deputy Chief of Mission at the Embassy of St. Vincent and the Grenadines to the United States, and Permanent Mission to the OAS, Fitzgerald Bramble, will demit office on June 24, 2005, to become the Director of the Organization of American States National Office in Suriname.

Before his appointment in Washington DC in October 2000, Bramble worked as Senior Projects Officer in the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development.

“My tenure in Washington, as St. Vincent and the Grenadines’ Deputy Chief of Mission, provided me with the unique opportunity of representing the government and people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, both at the bilateral and multilateral levels on a range of issues critical to the political, economic, social and cultural development of my country,” the diplomat remarked.

While in Washington DC, Bramble also represented St. Vincent and the Grenadines in soccer as a goalkeeper in the Caribbean Cup in New York and as recently as November 2004, in the FIFA World Cup Qualifying games, CONCACAF semifinal round.

Bramble said he looks forward to assuming his new post in Suriname, and that he would do this best to faithfully and effectively represent the interests of the OAS, while at the same time work to ensure that Suriname is positioned to maximize the benefits of its membership in the OAS.
