By Zoila Palma: The Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) issued a statement extending congratulations to Dr. Carla Barnett on her unanimous appointment as the 8th CARICOM Secretary-General.
Dr. Barnett succeeds Ambassador Irwin LaRoque who is completing his second term.
“As the first woman and the first Belizean to serve in this role, we are certain that Dr. Barnett will make great strides in the goals of regional integration and cooperation by bringing her knowledge and expertise to CARICOM gained from her capacities as a former Deputy Secretary General of CARICOM, Financial Secretary for Belize and Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Belize,” the BCCI noted.
The BCCI says that it is confident that Dr. Barnett will aptly facilitate the conversations between Member States necessary to advance the spirit of the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas (RTC).
“We look forward to working with Dr. Barnett, who is set to assume office on August 15th, 2021,” the chamber expressed.
