The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday announced that the Government of Belize has agreed to the appointment of Hugh Asquith Saul as Guyana’s Honorary Consul in Belize. Saul will replace Lutchman Sooknandan who served in that capacity for a number of years before retiring due to ill health. Saul on Friday was presented with his Letters of Commission by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Carolyn Rodrigues-Birkett.
The release said that Saul’s appointment as Guyana’s Honorary Consul in Belize represented 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, Saul served as a member of the Board of Directors at the Guyana State Corporation, Guyana Fisheries Corporation, Guyana Agricultural Products Corporation, the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute in Trinidad and at the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism in Belize.
