Finn Partners is providing PR, media relations and thought leadership services to Kamina Johnson Smith, who is Jamaica’s minister of foreign affairs and trade.

She has been campaigning to replace Patricia Scotland of Dominica as secretary-general of The Commonwealth.

Johnson Smith has traveled to African Commonwealth nations, including Nigeria, Botswana, Tanzania and Ghana, to press her bid that reportedly has backing from the UK and India.

The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting is slated for Kigali, Rwanda, from June 20 to June 25. Rwanda is last nation to join the 54-member grouping of former British territories.

Finn Partners has a three-month $99K contract with Johnson Smith that expires June 30.

It used to represent Jamaica tourism but resigned that account, which is now at Lou Hammond Group, in 2021.

Finn Partners took on The Bahamas following the split with Jamaica.
