Central American Bank for Economic Integration assesses national security program

Posted: Thursday, March 3, 2022. 10:12 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: A technical team from the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) is visiting Belize to reassess the needs of participating agencies of the Belize Integral Security Programme (BISP).

The BISP was created to strengthen citizen security through investments in infrastructure and equipment for the Belize Defence Force, the Belize Police Department, the Belize Coast Guard, and the National Forensic Science Service. In 2015, Belize signed a loan agreement with CABEI to implement this BZ$60 million project over a three-year period.

The CABEI team will be touring previous and new sites for a technical reassessment of their needs; these include the main Belize Defence Force camps in San Ignacio, Belize City, and Punta Gorda, the National Forensic Science Service, the Belize Police Training Academy, and the Belize Coast Guard facilities. Depending on the level of modification to the infrastructure component of the program, Belize could be in line for an increased total contribution from CABEI.

The team is headed by project executive Kerstin Morales and features specialists in productive infrastructure, supervision, procurement, credit analysis, environmental and social assessment and human development and social infrastructure. During their mission, the CABEI Delegation was joined by Dr. Osmond Martinez, Chief Executive Officer for the Ministry of Economic Development; Brigadier General (Ret’d) Dario Tapia, CEO in the Ministry of National Defence and Border Security; and Elvis Requena, project coordinator for the Belize Integral Security Programme.
