Ambassador Rattray who is Jamaican, has been appointed by UN Secretary-General António Guterres and succeeds Fekitamoeloa Katoa ‘Utoikamanu of Tonga.
The People’s National Party wishes to convey its heartfelt congratulations to Ambassador Rattray on this outstanding achievement. This appointment is the culmination of his , as well as his family’s, long history of service to Jamaica.
We further take the opportunity to thank Ambassador Rattray for his exceptional service as Jamaica’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations. His work at the United Nations has been exemplary, allowing the space for Jamaica to play an out-sized role in international debates and policy making.
As Jamaica’s Ambassador to the UN, Ambassador Rattray was a consistent voice for greater trade equity and debt-restructuring. In so doing, he advocated for better economic support for small island developing states.
Ambassador Rattray’s resume is impressive. His career has seen him serve as an advisor to the Minister of Industry and Investment in Jamaica, Ambassador of Jamaica to the People’s Republic of China in Beijing, Co-chair of the Group of Friends of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Financing; Children and the SDGs; as well as the Group of Friends of Decent Work and much more.
We again say congratulations and thank you to Ambassador Rattray, a most deserving candidate. We look forward to having you represent Jamaica yet again, as well as, the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States which so desperately need effective representation.
