Belize assumes Chairmanship of CARICOM; displays confidence in regional collaboration

Posted: Tuesday, January 4, 2022. 11:35 am CST.

By Benjamin Flowers: Belize has assumed the rotating chairmanship of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), with Prime Minister John Briceño serving as the lead for the regional body for the next six months.

In his first statement as Chairman, Briceño cited COVID-19 and climate change as major issues affecting the region but expressed confidence in the community’s ability to persevere.

“Notwithstanding the immense challenges ahead and the inherent risks and vulnerabilities that have always accompanied our existence, the Community possesses the requisite capacities, strategies and plans, and the will and courage to forge a resilient and prosperous Caribbean Community,” Briceño said.

He noted that regional cooperation, collaboration, and solidarity have been the center of the national responses for countries across the community. Briceño also said that as the community responds to the pandemic, countries have been crafting the framework for a regional recovery, which aligns with regional aspirations for sustainable development and resilience.

“As we enter this new year, challenges abound both within and outside the Community. But I am confident that with our collective ingenuity, the dynamism and promise of our integration, and our enduring Caribbean resilience and our Caribbean civilization will prevail,” Briceño added.

Briceño succeeds outgoing chairman, Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne.
