By BBN Staff: Political pundits have theorized that the US$60 million recently given to Belize from Taiwan would be used by the government for political mileage considering the fact that municipal elections are scheduled for next March.

Prime Minister Dean Barrow, however, has refuted that notion.

In an interview with the press on Friday in Belmopan, Barrow claimed that the US $60 million was in support of Belize’s budget. According to Barrow, such help from Taiwan is normal.

Furthermore, he explained that the recently received money is the result of a four year framework agreement between the Republic of China (ROC) Taiwan and the Government of Belize (GoB).

Barrow told the press that the previous agreement had come to an this was simply a renewal.
