Mexico’s new Ambassador to Guyana, Francisco Olguin, presented his letters of credence today as Mexico’s second-ever Ambassador to the country.

The move came ahead of the CARICOM/Mexico Summit later this month.

Guyana President Donald Ramotar said he was looking forward to meeting with Mexican President Felipe Calderon at the talks to exchange views and ideas on strengthening responses to challenges in the social, economic and political realms.

“In the current global environment, all countries have become forcibly aware of the need to work together,” he said. “I am proud to note that our two countries have worked closely together in several regional [and] international organizations where we share common membership to advance the political, economic and social objective which we jointly espouse.”

Olguin praised the commitment of both Guyana and Mexico to bring about changes required in the international community.

The Ambassador said both countries shared common concerns of peace and security in the Caribbean, and were active partners on numerous issues in international fora, including climate change.

Olguin succeeds former Ambassador Fernando Sandoval.

Mexico first established its embassy in Georgetown in February 2009.
