Our re-engagement with Latin America is crucial for our security and prosperity. Yesterday, the Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Mr Browne, opened a new Consulate-General in Recife and we will open a new embassy in El Salvador in 2012. We are broadening our relations across Latin America in areas such as higher education, science and innovation and green growth.
