New RAMSI Special Coordinator named by Aussie government to replace Tim George

Australia’s government has announced the new special co-ordinator of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI).

Graeme Wilson is expected to replace fellow Australian Tim George as Special Co-ordinator in January next year.

The government consulted the Solomon Islands Government and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretary-General on Mr Wilson’s appointment.

Mr Wilson, a senior career officer with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, has been Assistant Secretary of the Pacific Islands Branch since May 2005.

He has also had a stint as Consul-General in Noumea, from 1995-1998, and in the 1980s as Third Secretary in Vanuatu.

Mr George took up the position in November 2006.
