At the ceremony, the director general welcomed Ambassador Jackson to Geneva, underscoring that the Geneva post was an extremely active one as critical global issues are addressed by the various specialized agencies resident in Geneva.

He noted that her past experience at The Bahamas Mission to the United Nations, New York, should serve her well in this post.

Ambassador Jackson thanked him for the warm welcome and noted that the opening of the Bahamas Permanent Mission was not only a milestone for her, but also for the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

Given the importance of Geneva, particularly with respect to the seat of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Ambassador reiterated the significance of The Bahamas’ presence, as it seeks to advance The Bahamas’ accession to the WTO and follow closely other matters of interest to the government of The Bahamas.

The Ambassador was accompanied by third secretary, Granville Butler. The Bahamas Permanent Mission opened its doors in Geneva May 21, 2013.
