By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “On behalf of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), I extend heartfelt congratulations to you and the people of Belize on the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Independence,” said CARICOM Secretary-General Dr. Carla Barnett in a letter to Prime Minister Juan Antonio Briceño.
A CARICOM press release said Secretary-General Barnett praised Belize’s commitment to CARICOM’s agenda.
“CARICOM has greatly benefitted from the commitment of the Government of Belize to the Community’s most pressing priorities, including the Community’s global advocacy against climate change, especially the mobilisation of expertise in the lead up to the Glasgow Climate Change Conference (COP26), its leadership on matters of importance to small states, and its responsibility as the lead for justice and governance in the quasi-cabinet of CARICOM Heads of Government,” said Secretary-General Barnett.
Belize is today, September 21, 2021, celebrating two scores since becoming independent of the United Kingdom under the theme “Belize at 40: Hopeful Hearts, Steady hands, Together We Rise”.
Barnett added that this year’s theme “unifies all citizens in calling on them to continue to work hard, harness their collective strengths, focus on progress, and seize the opportunities at hand, including the benefits of regional integration”.
Barnett concluded that on occasion of this milestone, she wished Belize continued success of Belize.
