United States Vice President, Michael Pence, has hailed Jamaica and other countries in the Americas for pursuing economic reforms, and for their positive approach to growth.

“Let me thank the many countries that have demonstrated courage to pursue economic reforms to empower job creation, innovators and citizens alike, from Argentina to Jamaica,” he said, as he addressed a Protocolary Meeting at the Organization of American States headquarters in Washington DC on May 7.

Mr. Pence said he and President Donald J. Trump welcomed the bold action taken by those countries.

“We look forward to expanding our ties of commerce and exchanges for generation to come,” he added.

Jamaica’s Ambassador to the United States and Permanent Representative to the OAS, Her Excellency Audrey P. Marks, was also on hand at this special sitting of the OAS Permanent Council, called in the US Vice President’s honour.

“The United States has remained committed to working with our allies and partners to ensure the safety and security of our people across the hemisphere,” he told the Permanent Council, the second highest decision-making body of the OAS after the General Assembly.

Mr. Pence said that since its inception, the OAS has played a critical role is strengthening security partnership across the wider region.

The Vice President said there are tremendous opportunities to forge stronger trade relationships with countries in the hemisphere, and, over the past year, his country had successfully expanded access for vital agricultural products.
