There was a large representation of the local diplomatic and consular corps at the official opening of the Embassy of the republic of Argentina last week.

After many years without a resident ambassador, Argentina re-established a full-time diplomatic presence here a year ago, appointing Ambassador Diego Limeres.

The South American neighbour sent its Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Eduardo Zuain to do the honours at the reopening of  the embassy and Prime Minister Freundel Stuart was there along with Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite.

The new embassy is located in the building which formerly housed the Kirby Art Gallery and advantage was taken of the art display space where an exhibition of the work of Argentina’s celebrated photographer Marcelo Gurruchaga was mounted.
