By Aaron Humes: Much of Cabinet’s time this week was taken up with matters regional and international.

Belize has already seen more than five thousand persons passing through major land borders and seaports after they reopened on February 7, for fully vaccinated persons only, according to Eamon Courtenay, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade & Immigration.

And at the start of March, Belize welcomes its partners from the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and Central American Integration System (SICA). As chair of CARICOM, Belize hosts the 33rd Intersessional Meeting of CARICOM Heads of Government, meeting in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, on March 1 and 2, and the CARICOM-SICA Leaders Summit on March 3, the plans for which have been approved.

“Cabinet commended the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade & Immigration on the work of the Foreign Ministry on raising the profile of Belize internationally and endorsed the plan of action for Belize’s Chairmanship of CARICOM for the first half of 2022, including the opportunity for Belize to lead on critical and emergent issues facing CARICOM member states,” the body announced.

The Executive Cabinet approved Belize’s signature and the subsequent ratification of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Agreement on the Return or Sharing of Recovered Assets, intended to provide operational guidance and enhance international and regional cooperation for the return or sharing of recovered assets; as well, Belize’s signature of the Declaration of Intent to Provisionally Apply the Agreement on the Return or Sharing of Recovered Assets.

Lastly, Cabinet welcomed the opportunity to exchange views with Dr. Hyginus Leon, president of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), and his delegation. The discussion revolved around the work of the bank in Belize and efforts to enhance the partnership between Belize and the CDB in the development agenda of Belize and the Caribbean region.
