Belize Defence Force to receive over $3 million for troop lifting vehicles and office equipment

Posted: Friday, August 26, 2022. 9:46 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Ministries of Economic Development and National Defence and Border Security have signed two contracts valued at more than $3 million to purchase 10 troop lifting vehicles and office equipment for use by the Belize Defence Force (BDF).

The vehicles will be purchased from Belize Diesel and Equipment Company Limited for $2.69 million and the office equipment from Business Computer Systems Limited for $315,328.16. The contracts were signed as part of the Belize Integral Security Programme (BISP) funded by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) and which was approved in 2015.

From the BDF’s portion of funds – $13 million – funds will be used for communications and medical equipment; the construction of a fully equipped kitchen at Price Barracks, Belize District; the construction of a medical center at the Fairweather Camp, Punta Gorda; and the construction of an operations room at Camp Belizario, Cayo.

The Belize Integral Security Programme is geared towards strengthening citizen security through investments in infrastructure and equipment for public institutions responsible for national security. It also seeks to foster improvements in Belizean citizens’ quality of life and to support Central American efforts to combat crime. Other beneficiaries under this project include the Belize Coast Guard, the Belize Police Department and the National Forensic Science Service.

Signing on behalf of the Government of Belize were Oscar Mira, Minister of State for the Ministry of National Defence and Border Security, and Dr Osmond Martinez, CEO for the Ministry of Economic Development. Also in attendance at the signing ceremony were Retired Brigadier General Dario Tapia, CEO of the Ministry of National Defence and Border Security, and Elvis Requeña, Project Coordinator for the BISP.
