Belize Prime Minister Dean Barrow arrived in London Sunday for an official visit to the United Kingdom.

Barrow was met in London by a representative of Secretary of State William Hague and the High Commissioner for Belize to the UK.

The trip will include an address to a business summit about trade and investment in Belize, along with a meeting with the Mayor of London, Roger Gifford and other city officials.

Barrow will meet later this week with Hague and Andrew Robathan, the UK’s Minister of State for the Armed Forces, followed by a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles.

The latter visit will include talks over environmental issues and issues on the Belize-Guatemala border.

The Prime Minister is being joined on the trip by his wife, Kim Simplis-Barrow, who will be chairing a fundraising event for the Belize Children’s Trust Foundation.
