The Organization of American States (OAS) says the new Permanent Representative of Grenada, Yolande Yvonne Smith, on Thursday presented her credentials to OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro.

During the ceremony, at OAS’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., Smith underscored that “the OAS has been an integral part of Grenada and has been supportive of our institutional processes benefiting from several electoral observation missions and development projects.”

She further noted, according to the OAS, that the hemispheric body was the first international organization that Grenada became part of, recalling “the long commitment” of her country to the OAS’s work and mission.

Almagro noted Amb. Smith’s “broad service in the public sector and knowledge of multilateral diplomacy.”

“Having Amb. Smith among us underscores Grenada’s commitment to gender parity in its representa­tion,” the OAS chief said. “With her arrival, four of Grenada’s eight representatives have been women.”

The OAS said Grenada was the first Eastern Caribbean country to join the body shortly after independence in 1974.
