“Certainly when I came to this country I knew exactly what I had to do because I understood as many colleagues from Mexican government, the importance as a partner for Belize. So as soon as I arrived I started to do after the legal framework and it was very important because I would say that we worked very hard with the Belize Government to try to have the different issues and we could sign the first visit of Belize’s Minster of Foreign Affairs to Mexico, eight agreements from air transport, climate change, navigation missions, energy, intellectual property, social security, environment protection and consumer rights protection. We continue working on updating the legal framework. I would say we would have a lot of success in updating the legal framework. But we are still working on some very important agreement. The one that is still pending and I think is the most important one is the partial scope agreement. As you know partners, as neighbors and as nations we have to look for new ways to promote investment,  more trade more commerce.”
