Cabinet makes decisions on Agricultural Authority, Kolbe and price gouging

Posted: Thursday, September 2, 2021. 9:22 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: In other news from Tuesday’s meeting of Cabinet, the Executive approved the restructuring and updating of the Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA) regulations to address the removal of outdated technical terms; restructuring of regulations to ensure easy interpretation and applications; addition of regulation of new services fees; updating of fees to reflect the real cost of doing business and increasing rate of fines and penalties to foster compliance.

Cabinet has also approved an extension of the Kolbe Foundation’s Management contract for the Hattieville Prison. Belize’s only correctional facility hosts upward of 1,500 prisoners and has been managed by Kolbe since 2002.

And finally, Cabinet requested that the Minister of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise Jose Abelardo Mai instructs the Bureau of Standards to investigate the issue of price gouging at stores across Belize.

Prices on average are 2 percent higher than this point last year according to data released last week by the Statistical Institute of Belize, especially in foodstuffs and fuel.
