Wait Continues for New U.S. Ambassador to Belize
Just last month, Donald Trump was sworn in as the President of the USA and since that day, Carlos Moreno’s tenure as US Ambassador to Belize came to an end. Handling the Ambassador’s role at the US Embassy in Belmopan is Deputy Chief of Mission Adrienne Galanek. Today when we caught up with her, she was asked about that transition period – just how long will it take? Here’s what she had to say.
“Since you are holding over right now; until another Ambassador arrives, right?”

“How is that coming along? When do we expect to have an Ambassador?”
“Uhh, we don’t know yet because that is up to an Ambassador being nominated and appointed. So, right now we don’t have a nominee yet, as of yet. So, stay tuned.”
“And how long does that process normally take?”
“It can be quite extensive because the person has to be appointed and then they have to be confirmed as well. So, that process can be quite extensive.”
