By Aaron Humes: The Cabinet’s agenda was busy with several items discussed this week.

When the House next meets (it’s not clear if it will be introduced this Friday as the Prime Minister remains in isolation due to COVID-19), the Minister of Finance as recommended by Cabinet will introduce a loan motion for US$8 million from the Inter-American Development Bank for strengthening public expenditure management in Belize.

In addition and as we previously reported, Cabinet approved the opening of the land borders and seaports effective February 7, 2022 from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily for fully vaccinated persons only. In addition, the Ministry of Health and Wellness will require all persons entering and leaving through these border points to adhere to the health regulations.

And finally, Cabinet gave its approval for the introduction of legislation to amend the Fisheries Resources Act to provide specific penalties for certain fisheries offences and to allow for the establishment of the Florida Stone Crab (Menippe mercenaria) Fisheries in Belize.
