A delegation led by Foreign Minister Hon. Wilfred Elrington is currently in Lima, Peru representing Belize at the 8th Summit of the Americas. The delegation also includes UNCAC Focal Point, Attorney General Hon. Michael Peyrefitte, and Belize’s Ambassador to the United States and OAS, H.E. Daniel Gutierrez.

The Summit, which is held every three years, offers the opportunity for the leaders to jointly define a hemispheric agenda at the highest level that addresses urgent challenges and promotes positive change. The Heads of State and Government of the Americas will address the central theme of the Summit, “Democratic Governance against Corruption.” Representatives from CARICOM have since met with Prime Minister of Canada, Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, to discuss trade.
