By The Star Staff

Gov. Pedro Pierluisi Urrutia on Tuesday announced the appointment of Mayra Ramos Miró as the new director of the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration (PRFAA) office in the Florida region, under the direction of Luis Dávila Pernás, who currently leads the PRFAA’s Washington, D.C. office.

“With this appointment, we seek to strengthen the functions of the PRFAA office in Orlando, Florida, where we know that there are a large number of Puerto Ricans who require a liaison with our island for different government procedures,” the governor said in a written statement. “Ramos Miró has extensive experience in the field of communications and is very familiar with the Puerto Rican communities in Orlando. Our goal is to ensure that all Puerto Ricans feel well represented and I am confident that the new regional director of the PRFAA office will do so.”

With more than 20 years of experience in public relations, communications, marketing and business development, Ramos Miró has demonstrated exceptional leadership in her career, during which she has carried out successful projects with globally recognized brands, and her experience will be an invaluable asset in representing the interests of Puerto Rico in the Florida region, Pierluisi noted.

“My goal is to become an authentic bridge connecting Puerto Rico and Florida, fostering collaboration that transcends geographic boundaries,” Ramos Miró said. “With a renewed vision, I aim to cultivate valuable opportunities for trade exchanges, amplify exposure to tourism, and forge invaluable partnerships. These efforts not only seek to advance our respective regions, but to contribute to the progress and prosperity of every Puerto Rican, whether on the island or in Florida. Together we will work toward a course that not only sustains us but propels us toward success and shared growth.”

Dávila Pernás, the executive director of the PRFAA in Washington, pointed out that “with a career of more than 20 years, Mayra Ramos Miró has managed to obtain vast experience that will be of great benefit in continuing to direct all the projects that the administration of Governor Pierluisi and the PRFAA have been carrying out.”

“With Florida being the state with the largest Puerto Rican population in the nation, I am proud to be able to count on Mayra’s knowledge to continue reinforcing our commitment to our communities,” he said. “Likewise, I know that she will keep open the channels of communication with the entire Puerto Rican community in Florida, solidifying the bridge between the island and the other states. I appreciate her commitment and willingness to take on the role and challenge of leading this important regional office.”

In her new role, Ramos Miró will be the primary liaison between the government of Puerto Rico and local and federal authorities in the Florida region. Her experience and strategic skills will be critical in strengthening collaboration and coordination of efforts for the benefit of the Puerto Rican community in Florida.

The PRFAA Office is the government entity in charge of coordinating relations between the government of Puerto Rico and federal agencies in Washington, D.C., and other strategic regions. Its mission is to advance Puerto Rico’s interests at the federal level and ensure that the island’s needs are effectively addressed.
