It has been confirmed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is to announce the next British Honorary Consul to St. Kitts and Nevis, to replace Mr. Peter Alcorn.
Government sources have indicated that Cabinet has already approved the recommendation of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Mr. Sam Condor.
“After many years of service as the British Honorary Consul to St. Kitts and Nevis,
The Government wishes to place on record its profound thanks to Mr. Peter Alcorn and his family for their many years diligent service in the Federation and extends very best wishes for success in their future endeavours, said the release.
Mr. Peter Alcorn retired from the position in October 2010.
Honorary consuls may represent large and densely populated counties, or, as is often the case, small countries in the developing world, such as St. Kitts & Nevis, which seek to promote business diplomacy.
Most honorary consuls are people of means or independent wealth who do not receive monetary compensation for their service as consul. They may have other business interests.
