St George’s, Grenada: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Export Development of Grenada is pleased to announce that the Government of Grenada has appointed Terrance “Terry” Forrester as Ambassador for Diaspora Affairs with effect from July 15, 2023.
Forrester will be based in Grenada at the Office of Diaspora Affairs and will travel as needed, as per the Government of Grenada.
The appointment of Forrester is designed to increase, intensify, and optimise the ability of the Government to reach out to and harness the ideas, voice, and skills of our broad-based Diaspora population as a vital component of national development.
Forrester’s experience in public life spans more than three decades and is inclusive of extensive political, administrative, and philanthropic service, as well as a successful career in private business.
The update by the government outlined that he previously served in roles such as Director of Tourism UK/Europe at Grenada’s High Commission in London, Chairman of Grenada’s National Celebrations Committee, where he spearheaded the events of the Nation’s Silver Jubilee (25th) Anniversary of Independence, Chairman of the Grenada Airports Authority, Chairman of the Grenada Industrial Development Cooperation, Chairman of the National Water and Sewerage Authority and Chairman of the Financial Complex Ltd.
He also held the position of Ambassador-at-large with responsibility for foreign investments.
Having served in those positions, Forrester acquired a wealth of knowledge and expertise, which will augur well for Grenada in his new role, as the affairs of the Diaspora are multifaceted and challenging in nature.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Export Development, which also encompasses Diaspora Affairs, congratulates Forrester on his appointment and looks forward to enhanced engagement on Diaspora Affairs as a critical part of Grenada’s development.
