Tuesday, December 23, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Belize and Japan have signed a multi-million dollars agreement for the purchase of products from Japan.
Prime Minister Dean Barrow and Foreign Affairs Minister Wilfred Elrington signed on behalf of Belize, while Japan’s ambassador to Belize Yasuo Takase signed on behalf of his country.
Under the agreement, Belize will purchase BZ$2 million in various products as part of of a mutual assistance program.
Over the next few weeks an expert will meet with Belizean officials to determine exactly what is needed, and the items will be purchased through a special account to be opened in Japan.
Prime Minister Barrow noted that the items on offer are produced in areas of Japan affected by recent natural disasters, acting as a stimulant to the local economy.
Japan has opened dialogue with Caribbean nations and will do so with member nations of SICA next year.
