Fin­land has new ho­no­ra­ry con­sul in Su­ri­na­me

Times of Suriname - - PANORAMA -

On Fri­day Fo­reign Af­fairs (Buza) Mi­nis­ter Yl­diz Pol­lack­Beighle on Fri­day pre­sen­ted the cer­ti­fi­ca­te of ap­point­ment over to the new ho­no­ra­ry con­sul of Fin­land, Warsha To­ril­al­Sard­joe. To­ril­al­Sard­joe suc­ceeds Di­lip­koe­mar Sard­joe who had car­ried this tit­le sin­ce 2012. The Fo­reign Af­fairs mi­nis­ter poin­ted out that she ho­pes that the new ho­no­ra­ry con­sul will fur­ther streng­then the exis­ting re­la­ti­ons bet­ween Su­ri­na­me and Fin­land as equal part­ners on bi­la­te­ral, re­gi­o­nal and mul­ti­la­te­ral le­vel. She al­so men­ti­o­ned se­ve­r­al are­as whe­re both na­ti­ons can col­la­bo­ra­te such as cli­ma­te chan­ge, fo­re­stry, tra­de and tou­rism. “I feel ho­no­red to fill this po­si­ti­on for a coun­try such as Fin­land which has so ma­ny in­no­va­ti­ons that we in Su­ri­na­me can tap in­to through va­rious joint ven­tu­res. The for­mer ho­no­ra­ry con­sul has do­ne a good job and has laid a broad foun­da­ti­on for ma­king con­tact and do­ing bu­si­ness with Fin­land and I am rea­dy to con­ti­nue the good work. A foun­da­ti­on was al­so laid for at least 10 joint ven­tu­res with com­pa­nies and or­ga­ni­za­ti­ons from Fin­land at the Do­ing Bu­si­ness with Fin­land con­gress that was held in Fe­bru­a­ry 2020”, said To­ril­alSard­joe.

An ho­no­ra­ry con­sul is iden­ti­fied by the bi­la­te­ral part­ner and works within the fra­me­work of the Vi­en­na Con­ven­ti­on on Con­su­lar Re­la­ti­ons. Ho­no­ra­ry con­suls can ma­ke an im­por­tant con­tri­bu­ti­on to the de­vel­op­ment of joint ven­tu­res bet­ween coun­tries via for example the im­ple­men­ta­ti­on of na­ti­o­nal de­vel­op­ment goals on eco­no­mic, sci­en­ti­fic, cul­tu­ral and tou­rism area. The Fo­reign Mi­ni­stry has al­rea­dy no­ti­fied all other ho­no­ra­ry con­suls in the coun­try of the ap­point­ment of the new ho­no­ra­ry con­sul for Fin­land in Su­ri­na­me.
