On July 9 of last year, US President Barack Obama formally nominated  retired California Supreme Court judge Carlos R. Moreno to be the United States Ambassador to Belize.

On Wednesday, May 15, the United States Congress unanimously confirmed Moreno as the country’s new ambassador to Belize replacing Vinai Thummalapally.

The announcement of the New Ambassador’s presentation of credentials to the Governor General at the Belize House in Belmopan, which will officially mark the start of his appointment has not been announced.

Until then, the US Embassy is currently being lead by the Charge de’ Affairs Margarate Hawthornes.
