According to a statement from the Government of Belize, the aim of the meeting was to commence a dialogue between both parliaments in an effort to establish an inter-parliamentary relation in areas relating to politics, economics, environment, education and culture.
The release notes that PARLACEN is a permanent regional institution that comprises of parliamentarians of Central America and the Dominican Republic, excluding Belize and Costa Rica, who are elected in their respective countries.
“It has a political and democratic representation in SICA, and its main objective is to promote the unity of Central America as a region of peace, liberty, democracy and development,” the release further states.
At the meeting, the Speaker pledged her commitment to continue the dialogue with PARLACEN, with the hope that the National Assembly of Belize can in the future sign a Memorandum of Understanding that will result in our parliament working with PARLACEN in parliamentary projects for the promotion of frameworks/legislation for the region.
