Hon. E.P. Chet Greene Statement on the passing of the late Lady Ena Pereira Thomas

 

On behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, immigration and Trade I extend sincere condolences to the family of the Late Lady Ena Pereira Thomas former Permanent Secretary and first Chief of Protocol of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

As Permanent Secretary with Ambassadorial rank, Lady Ena was described as a dedicated and conscientious official with a strong commitment to diplomatic procedures and administration. She was an inspiration to those who worked with her at the Ministry.

 

She was known for her grace and aplomb in facilitating the many state and official ceremonies and activities through her tenure in office.

 

Lady Ena was a strong believer that protocol subtly becomes the face of a country’s diplomatic relations that remains in minds of foreign officials for a long time after joint statements are made and agreements signed.

As a dedicated senior government administrator she made significant contributions to the growth and development of the Ministry of Foreign of Affairs.

 

She will be deeply missed by her former colleagues, friends and foreign officials who worked with her during her time in office.

Once again, please accept our sincerest condolences.

  4. My colleague during my years in the Ministry Lady Ena was a kind, hard working, positive vibes kind of person who made work fun to serve. Her protocol consciousness made everyone around her eager to help as we all learned and borrowed from other countries to build our new governmental procedures. It was wonderful growing Antigua & Barbuda with her. We have been blessed to have had Lady Ena in our infancy of Independence, helping to grow the foundation of Foreign Affairs and the protocols which go with it. We give thanks for her life and work, and grieve with her family and the nation.
