By Aaron Humes: Prime Minister John Briceño has sat down to brief Belizeans on the year that was and the year that is to come.

This is a time, he said, when as individuals, institutions, and nations, we “measure time, mark accomplishments, mourn losses and map out fresh goals.”

In the case of Belize, there have been challenges and tests “in unthinkable ways,” but yet, he argued, “we turned things around.”

As proof, he pointed to the fall in unemployment, now measured at 9.2 percent and 25 thousand more Belizeans back to work.

Belize’s economy produced goods and services valued at an additional $85 million compared to 2020.

And even the International Monetary Fund (IMF), a reliable predictor of doom and gloom where Belize’s finances are concerned, have revised projected growth for Belize in 2021 by more than 10 percent, from two to 12.5 percent: “a near-miraculous comeback,” in Briceño’s words.
