OES Ambassador Elliston Rahming has been chosen to lead the Bahamian delegation to the Organization of American States’ (OAS) 43rd annual General Assembly in Antigua, Guatemala, June 3-7, 2013.

The General Assembly brings together some 500 diplomats and delegates from the 35 countries that constitute the OAS, as well as non-member observer delegates.

At this year’s high-powered hemispheric parley, some 100 items are on the agenda among them small business development, the elimination of all forms of racism and discrimination, hemispheric safety and security and protection of senior citizens.


The delegation will also include Kimberley Lam, alternate representative of The Bahamas Permanent Mission to the OAS and Mikhail Bullard, foreign affairs officer of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Also at this year’s summit delegates will vote to fill vacancies on such important organizations as the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

Grandeur of the Seas arrived in Freeport this morning at approximately 10:15 a.m. ET. Grandeur of the Seas was en route to CocoCay when the ship experienced a fire in the mooring area in the aft of the ship. The fire was extinguished at 4:58 a.m. and the ship was redirected to Freeport for further evaluation.

Rhoda Jackson presented her credentials in Geneva May 24, assuming her position as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary and Permanent Representative of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas to the United Nations Office and other International Organizations in Geneva.
