Before making the announcement, PM Barrow once again took time out to publicly commend the late ambassador, Alfredo Martinez whom he described as an outstanding public servant to the country who was a brilliant ambassador and who contributed enormously to Belizean diplomacy in particular to the relations of Belize and Guatemala. He continued to explain that with the passing of H.E. Martinez there was a need to fill the position, it being Belize's most important diplomatic posting. He then confirmed that CEO Alexis Rosado will now take up that position.

Rosado, stated the Prime Minister , is extremely experienced in diplomacy being high commissioner in the U.K. for a number of years as well as holding other various posts in the foreign service. He added that Rosado possessed more than academic qualifications as well as "the sorts of personal traits that are going to be required for this particular assignment." He will take up the position as soon as the Guatemalans accept the appointment.

With the move of Rosado, current CEO in the Ministry of housing, Lawrence Sylvestre, will take up the position of CEO in Foreign Affairs. He too is eminently qualified to that position as he was there previously and was also High Commissioner to the U.K. and "he knows the foreign ministry inside out," stated the P.M.

The position which he leaves in the Ministry of Housing will be filled by Denton Belisle. He too was a CEO in the Social Security Board and was also High Commissioner to the U.K. as well and is fit for the position having experience in public service in the country.
