By Aaron Humes: Hours after the Senate met in Belmopan, the Progressive Sugar Cane Farmers Association (“Progressive”) and Corozal Sugar Cane Producers Association (“CSCPA”) expressed their profound gratitude to the majority in the Upper Chamber that halted the passage of the proposed Amendment to the Sugar Industry Act.
The relieved duo repeated that the amendment “would have had dire implications for the freedom of Cane Farmer Associations to manage their affairs and also concentrated too much discretion in any Ministry of Agriculture to resolve disputes.” They also noted that Belize’s democracy is enhanced by those who “thought deeply, exercised foresight and weighed issues rationally,” and “the Belizean investment climate have benefited greatly from your firm, principled and reasoned stance.”
Both associations say they remain willing to sit down and discuss in a dignified manner with the appropriate industry regulators, government representatives, and major actors all the issues provided “of course, that respect will be mutual and that we finally get the opportunity to be heard and that all facts be presented.”
