By BBN Staff: An article posted this week in the Yucatan Times notes that a delegation from Belize recently concluded a working visit to the city of Merida in a collaboration focused on municipal and urban development.
The Belizean delegation included representatives of the Ministries of Natural Resources, Local Government, Economic Development, Housing and Urban Development and the Central Information Technology Office (CITO). The delegation met with the Merida City Council, Mayor Renan Barrera, and the Municipal Planning Institute (IMPLAN) on February 27 and 28.
The workshops and technical meetings that were held included information on strategic issues such as the historical background of territorial administration, database management, and online processes, the use of tools for land use management, municipal construction
experts, and the exchange of experiences and opinions.
Olga Tzec, Project Reform Coordinator for the Belize construction sector, told the Yucatan times that Belize chose Mérida for this cooperation deal due to the city’s international recognition as being one of the leaders in municipal and urban development.
“The idea is also to strengthen the bilateral relationship with Mérida to carry out a coordinated work, generate visits between both places in order to exchange experiences that allow will us to improve our planning and management capabilities for the benefit of citizens,” Tzec told the Yucatan Times.
She also noted that Belize has a project called “Project Reform of the Construction Sector of Belize,” which will streamline the process of granting building permits by opening “one-stop service booths”.
