Thursday, September 17th, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: Her Excellency Ambassador and head of delegation of the European Union (EU) to Belize, Paola Amadei, touched down today, Thursday for a week of activities highlighting contributions by the EU to Belize.
According to the Ambassador in a press release statement, “The Belize-EU relationship has blossomed this year, with lots of achievements to celebrate, and so it’s a pleasure to be here in Belize and participate in events to honour Belize’s independence celebrations.”
H.E. Amadei plans meetings with Minister of Foreign Affairs Wilfred Elrington today and Minister of Energy, Science, Technology and Public Utilities Sen. Joy Grant on Friday, concerning various topics.
Next week, on September 23, the Ambassador travels south to Georgetown, Stann Creek District, for a handover of vocational training equipment at the Georgetown Technical High School, funded from resources of the Banana Accompanying Measures (BAM) programme.
Later in Monkey River Town in the Toledo District, a refurbished hurricane shelter will be handed over. This project, with contributions from the EU and the Government of Belize amounting to over BZ$1.5 million, is part of the wider Belize Rehabilitation and Construction of Hurricane Shelters Programme, in which nineteen (19) shelters located throughout Belize have been rehabilitated.
Ambassador Amadei said of both projects: “We are proud to be involved in these kinds of projects that benefit the people of Belize on a personal level. As this partnership continues, the EU looks forward to future efforts that will benefit Belizeans as a whole.”
