By Aaron Humes: A national delegation led by Prime Minister John Briceño is back in Belize after completing an official visit to the Republic of Cuba.
The Prime Minister was hosted by First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez.
Belize and Cuba have signed a memorandum of understanding and a cooperation agreement between each country’s Ministry of Health.
The Prime Minister has been documenting the trip on his personal Facebook page, noting, “Cuba has been one of our long-standing bilateral partners. We’ve supported the island nation’s right to self-determination. Our mutual political support is a plus for Belize in areas of health, education, culture, and sports,” before the meeting with President Díaz-Canel.
As part of the visit, the delegation toured BioCubaFarma, the Cuban organization of biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, which manages the country’s efforts toward manufacturing medicines, diagnostics and medical equipment, providing high-quality life science services to improve people’s health.
On Friday, the team rounded out the tour with a visit to the Centro Fidel Castro, which celebrates the life of the great revolutionary leader of Cuba.
According to Briceño, “…the centre displays no statue or sculpture of the former leader and President. He was not in agreement with such displays. Instead, the new museum presents itself as a study centre and library. A visit will introduce you to the story of Cuba and President Fidel Castro.”
P.M. Briceño was accompanied by Minister of Foreign Affairs Eamon Courtenay and his CEO Amalia Mai, a former Ambassador of Belize to Cuba; Minister of Health Kevin Bernard; Minister of Home Affairs Kareem Musa; and Minister of Tourism Anthony Mahler.
