June 10 Basseterre St. Kitts: This island stands to benefit from the appointment of an Honorary Consul General in Costa Rica.
 
British-born Mr. Jonathan Curshen, who has been recently appointed to the post, disclosed that he has invited over 200 top officials from the Costa Rican government, National Assembly, business and banking sectors, lawyers and travel agencies to a reception at Hotel Real Intercontinental to mark the official opening of the Consular General’s Office in San Jose on June 22nd.

“My role is to facilitate and develop relations – both public and private – in the Central American and Latin American region with my focus being in Costa Rica, which is where the Honorary Consulate is based,” said Curshen.

He said as Honorary Consular General, he will be working on developing cultural and educational exchanges between Costa Rica and St. Kitts and Nevis and develop agreements that will help to facilitate easier business and take advantage of the new CARICOM-Costa Rica Free Trade Agreement and how it can be best utilised to the benefit of the people of St. Kitts and Nevis.

Mr. Curshen, who has been involved in financial services for over a decade and manages a leading law firm in San Jose said he plans to organise a commercial mission later this year which will bring together some 300 leading business people from several sectors with government and business leaders from St. Kitts and Nevis.

“They will make presentations and share with them why St. Kitts and Nevis is a great place to do business and facilitate exportation of products under the CARICOM-Costa Rica Trade Agreement,” said Curshen, who also discussed issues related to tourism with Minister of State in the Ministry of Tourism, Sports and Culture, Senator Ricky Skerritt; and information technology with Minister of State in the Ministry of Information and Technology, Senator the Hon. Nigel Carty.

While here Mr. Curshen, who is not paid by the Federation, met and held discussions with other government officials to get as much information which will be helpful in promoting St. Kitts and Nevis in Costa Rica and the Latin American region.

He met with Chief Secretary Mr. Joseph Edmeade; Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ms. Theresa Nisbett; St. Kitts and Nevis Ambassador Her Excellency Miss Roslyn Hazelle, Press Secretary to the Prime Minister, Mr. Erasmus Williams and Director of Marketing in the Financial Services Department, Mrs. Shawna Brisbane.
