By BBN Staff: Mexican President, Enrique Pena Nieto, has issued a statement regarding his visit to Belize for his summit with CARICOM Leaders.
In that statement, Nieto expressed that it was a pleasure to visit Belize which along with Mexico had been apart of the great Maya Civilization.
Our bond he said is invigorated everyday by the 3,000 Mexicans living in Belize and the hundreds of Belizeans that visit Mexico every year.
Nieto reminded that in 1981 Mexico was the first country to recognize Belize’s independence and since then, both countries have collaborated positively.
According to Nieto, during his visit to Belize, he will meet with Prime Minister Dean Barrow to discuss relevant aspects of our bilateral agenda.
This will provide an opportunity to promote new cooperation projects that will benefit both countries.
This visit he indicated will also fortify the entire region as Belize will host the forth Mexico-CARICOM summit. This summit will present an opportunity for regional collaboration in areas of education, health, agriculture, infrastructure, statistics, ICTs and finance.
Additionally, the Mexican President hopes to present, “a Strategy for Comprehensive Disaster Management in order to build up resilience and preparation of the Caribbean institutions in the face of natural disasters.”
President Nieto expressed his gratitude to our Prime Minister and our government for their enthusiasm and commitment for the preparation of the IV Mexico- CARICOM Summit.
