American Chamber of Commerce of Suriname
Dear AmCham SR members and relations,
As a passionate advocate for innovation and forward-thinking leadership, I am honored to serve as the newly-elected President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Suriname, embarking on a journey of growth and transformation.
As we embark on this new chapter, I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for us to foster stronger ties between Suriname and the United States, and to promote business growth and innovation within our vibrant community.
Together, we can create a conducive environment for investment, entrepreneurship, and economic development. I look forward to working collaboratively with each of you, leveraging our collective expertise and resources, to drive meaningful impact and create value for our members and stakeholders. Let us embrace the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, with a shared vision of fostering growth, facilitating trade, and championing the interests of our esteemed members.
In my role as President, I am committed to representing AmCham SR with integrity and ensuring that we are the strongest and most respected foreign business association in Suriname. Additionally, I will tirelessly advocate for our members' collective needs, strengthening our membership base and amplifying our chamber's voice.
I would like to take a moment to acknowledge and applaud the remarkable achievements of my immediate predecessors on the AmCham SR board. Their dedication and contributions have paved the way for our chamber's success, and I am grateful for their invaluable leadership.
Your continued support is the cornerstone of our success, and I am confident that our combined efforts will lead us to a prosperous future for the American Chamber of Commerce in Suriname.
Thank you for entrusting me with this responsibility.
With gratitude and determination,
President, American Chamber of Commerce Suriname

NOT A SHARK TANK BUT A PIRANHA PITCH 😁?
The US Embassy and AmCham Suriname are pleased to offer our friends and members the opportunity to present their business projects to the representative of DFC (www.dfc.gov).
We are delighted to share that Amcham Suriname is currently actively engaged in preparing for an upcoming "Piranha Pitch" (not a Shark Tank 😉)on the 6th of June.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the team at the US Embassy in Suriname and the Development Finance Corporation (DFC) USA for including us in this endeavor. It is an incredible opportunity to be part of a journey aimed at fostering sustainable entrepreneurship and enhancing the ease of doing business in Suriname.
