Belize “still a good country”, says PM Barrow

By Aaron Humes: Belizeans are still living in a good country, insists Prime Minister Dean Barrow, despite our many tests in recent months.

The potentially destabilizing divisions caused by the ICJ campaign resulted in a May vote accepted by most if not all.

The economy is growing – 5.2 percent in the first six months – despite the drought striking agricultural industries and crime besmirching the national image in tourism. Unemployment is at 7.6 percent, the lowest in a decade. And industrial hemp is coming soon.

Belize Electricity Limited is replacing lost power supply from CFE in Mexico and trialing electric vehicles; BTL’s DigiLearn program aims to introduce a digital learning environment in schools and government school students are to get their subsidies of 300 dollars for all four years of school.

On crime, 200 more police officers are being trained and security cameras are to blanket the Old Capital. This will be bolstered by greater social protection programs and infrastructure jobs, but no mention was made of a forensic laboratory to help solve crime – it had been promised before.

We’ll have much more later on.
