Farewell Alvaro Sanchez

By Roy Lie Atjam.

Only hours before his departure, I had the honour to meet with Mr. Alvaro Sanchez, Chargé d’ Affairs at the Embassy of the Republic of Venezuela in the Netherlands.

After serving his country for one year and a half as Chargé d’ Affaires, Alvaro Sanchez has left the Netherlands for a new important assignment on the Caribbean island of Barbados, often referred to as the little Britain of the Caribbean.

During his stint in the Netherlands Sanchez contributed towards exposing Venezuela culturally through several concerts by El Sistema at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

He also contributed to the screening of Venezuelan films at the Rotterdam Film Festival last year.

It didn’t take the Chargé d’ Affaires long to settle down in his new abode in the “Bajan” capital Bridgetown. He met with Heads of Mission and other representatives of the Diplomatic Corps, government ministers, among them, Minister of Youth and Community Empowerment Adrian Forde, Minister of Environment and National Beautification, Trevor Prescod, Minister of Labour and Social Partnership Relations, Colin Jordan.

All had gathered on Thursday 5 July 2018 for his welcome reception and the Venezuelan National Day.

Mr. Alvaro Sanchez is confident that a recent meeting between the newly elected Barbadian Prime Minister the Hon. Mia Amor Mottley and Venezuela’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Caribbean Affairs, Raul Licausi will mark a new beginning in the two countries’ relations.

Next year, Venezuela and Barbados will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, and according to the new Chargé d’ Affaires, this will be a great opportunity to work comprehensively towards more cooperation and integration.

We wish Alvaro the best of luck in his new assignment.
