The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday announced that the Government of Belize has agreed to the appointment of Mr. Hugh Asquith Saul as Guyana’s Honorary Consul in Belize.

Mr. Saul will replace Mr. Lutchman Sooknandan who served in that capacity for a number of years but retired due to ill health. Mr. Saul was today presented with his Letters of Commission by the Hon. Carolyn Rodrigues-Birkett, Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Mr. Saul’s appointment as Guyana’s Honorary Consul in Belize represents an important step in the further deepening of relations between the two CARICOM countries and to ensuring that nationals of Guyana residing in Belize are afforded the opportunity of consular services.

Prior to migrating to Belize Mr. Saul served as a member of the Board of Directors in the Guyana State Corporation, Guyana Fisheries Corporation, Guyana Agricultural Products Corporation, Guyana Agricultural Research and Development Institute and the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism.
