Ambassador Milla Reyes started his career in 1979 working for a law firm in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. After 1982, he joined the Foreign Ministry and was sent as officer in charge of consular affairs on several overseas postings in Spain, El Salvador, Mexico and then Nicaragua. From 2002 to 2009 he served as Ambassador to several countries including Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua. In 2010, he was finally sent to Washington, to serve as minister of human rights at the Honduran embassy and the Honduran representative to the Organization of American States, before being appointed deputy chief of mission and finally ambassador in his country’s Washington Embassy.
