The new Mexican Ambassador to St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG), Luis Manuel Lopez Moreno, resident in St. Lucia, presented his Letter of Credence to Deputy Governor General, Dame Monica Dacon on Monday.

Moreno is a career diplomat with over 30 years of experience in the diplomatic field having joined the Mexican Foreign Service in 1982. During this period he has been hailed as a promoter of the bilateral cooperation through a close and respectful relation with the authorities of the countries where he has represented Mexico.

He is no stranger to Caribbean affairs, previously serving as ambassador to Haiti and Belize, respectively, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kingstown said in a release.

Mexico and SVG established diplomatic relations on July 31, 1990. Since then, both countries have maintained cordial and fruitful relations. Some of the areas in which both countries have partnered by way of agreements are economic relations, technical and scientific cooperation, cultural and educational cooperation.

In the area of education, a number of Vincentian students have benefited from both short term and long term academic training in Mexico in various fields. Mexico has pledged it readiness to provide assistance to SVG following the devastating December floods.

Regionally, SVG and Mexico partner on issues of mutual interest through their membership to the Association of Caribbean states, Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, and the Organisation of American States.

As part of his two-day visit, Moreno also made courtesy calls to several key government and private sector officials including Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves; Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade, Commerce and Information Technology, Sen. Camillo Gonsalves; and President of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Christine DaSilva.

Further to being accredited to SVG, Moreno also serves concurrently as Mexico’s representative to other Member States of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).

    Welcome to the new Mexican Ambassador to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Luis Manuel Lopez Moreno, welcome Sir.

    Are you aware of the following?

    Were we not told at one point in the past by our PM that Mexico were part of the ‘coalition of the willing’ and would be supplying all the cement for the airport free of charge?

    Neither of these things seem to be true, because they never gave us any cement.

    We have been for the last four months buying cement from elsewhere, ship loads of it, and storing it at Diamond, where it is starting to go hard in the slings. I have been inspecting it on a regular basis.

    Mexico to date have shown no input into being part of the ‘coalition of the willing’ which I believe turned out to also be untrue, either by default by the Mexicans or by being part of an elaborate fairy story.

    The above is my honest belief and views.
