In order to handle global concerns that transcend a single nation or region, international relations enables nations to collaborate, pool resources, and share information. Pandemics, terrorism, and environmental issues are just a few of the current world issues. In recent years, Suriname has developed a strong worldwide profile. This is clear, among other things, from the positions our nation has and the assistance it receives from other nations. The United Nations’ Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) has been the subject of this most lately. On June 8, 2023, Suriname was resoundingly chosen to serve as a member of ECOSOC for the years beginning on January 1, 2024, and ending on December 31, 2026. One of the six main United Nations bodies, ECOSOC, has the responsibility of advancing sustainable development. From 2000 to 2002, Suriname served as this group’s final member.

Additionally, Minister Ramdin of Suriname will preside over the Ministerial Council of the Association of Caribbean States (ACP) beginning in May 2023. The ACS, which has 25 members, is active in the region’s trade, transportation, sustainable tourism, and disaster assistance. The Caribbean Development and Cooperation Committee (CDCC) of ECLAC, which stands for the “Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean,” will be presided over by Suriname from October 2022 to October 2024. Minister of Health Ramadhin represents Suriname in this important body that will meet again at the end of this month.

In addition, Suriname is also very active in CARICOM, with President Santokhi chairing this important regional organization last year. In 2022, Suriname chaired the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS), where currently Ambassador Schalkwijk, on behalf of Suriname, chairs the Working Group for Humanitarian Assistance to Haiti. Subsequently, on May 8, 2023, Suriname acceded to the OAS Convention for older persons. Suriname also participates in many committees of the OAS, with the hope that a Surinamese will be elected this month as one of the seven commissioners of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR). A delegation from the IACHR visited Suriname in February this year, where capacity reinforcement was promised.

There have been several visits by senior officials to Suriname in the past period, including the presidents of India, Brazil and Guyana. In addition, the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres and the Secretary General of the ACP, Rodolfo Sabonge, visited Suriname. The United States Minister of Foreign Affairs and various ministers from the Netherlands and other countries also visited Suriname for bilateral and multilateral consultations.

Over the past period, Suriname has seized various important moments at international forums to make itself heard, to cast a voice, to clearly state a position on matters concerning global issues and to strengthen friendly and business ties worldwide. To this end, President Santokhi has visited various countries and addressed the public at many international forums. In addition, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Business and International Cooperation, Minister Albert Ramdin and colleagues from various other ministries have also managed to achieve positive results for Suriname in the implementation of their cross-border work.

The appointments to various international positions reflect confidence in the contribution that Suriname has to make. There is confidence that Suriname cooperates in the global approach to problems and is also able to cooperate to manage national affairs, to safeguard its own interests and to promote political, economic, cultural or scientific relations, while maintaining peaceful relations.
