Suriname: Suriname and Canada meet for bilateral discussions

The COVID-19 situation, multilateral and regional priorities, capacity building and commercial engagement were the main topics discussed during a consultation meeting between representatives from Suriname and Canada. Virtual consultations were held on 14 June between representatives at the working level of governments from both countries.

The intent of this discussion was to explore ways in which the countries can broaden cooperation to begin building a joint roadmap for action to pursue shared priorities. During the consultation session, both sides highlighted priority areas and shared updates on the current work of governments, both bilaterally and multilaterally.

At the end of the talks, delegations agreed to further develop the roadmap for cooperation in the near future and to exchange updates on the progress of the work. Previously, there have been several high-level meetings between Canada and Suriname, such as the first meeting of Canada-Caricom foreign ministers, which was held in February. Afterwards there was a teleconference between the Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Marc Garneau and his colleague from Suriname Albert Ramdin.
