By Aaron Humes : A busy first session of the upper chamber of the National Assembly is taking place in Belmopan today.
The Senate has debated and approved two loan motions, the OPEC Fund for International Development Hummingbird Highway Reconstruction loan for US$12 million; and the US$15 million IDB Sustainable Tourism Project II loan.
Senator Mark Lizarraga, representing the Business Community, and the Opposition’s senators, questioned value for money for infrastructure and previous tourism projects, and in the case of Lizarraga, called on Government to institute some means of evaluating completed projects.
The Senate is also considering 15 motions relating to international cooperation agreements with Ecuador, Argentina and Guatemala. The latter are the 13 cooperative agreements signed last December on the sidelines of the SICA summit held in Placencia.
