By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Venezuelan Ambassador Gerardo Argote said last week that 129 Belizeans have been trained or are being trained by the Venezuelan National Institute Training and Socialist Education (INCES) through the bilateral cooperation in education that Venezuela maintains with Belize.
Ambassador Argote made the statement during a presentation on the bilateral cooperation in education that he made in Belmopan for Francis Fonseca, Minister of Education, Culture, Science and Technology of Belize; Elvia Vega, Minister of State for Human Development; Dr. Vincent Palacio, Rector of the University of Belize; and Margarita Gómez, President of the Institutes of Education and Technical and Vocational Training of Belize (ITVET of Belize).
“Ambassador highlighted that through the Venezuelan Institute for Cooperation and Culture (IVCC), which has been operating in Belize for more than 30 years, Venezuela has cooperated with Belize in education and training in various areas,” said the Venezuelan Embassy in a press release.
According to a press release, since 2021, INCES has focused on technical and professional programs.
“To date, 129 Belizeans distributed nationwide have been trained or are in the process of being trained (25 cutting and sewing graduates, 32 studying Microsoft technology, 13 studying shirt and pants manufacturing, 29 women training in barbering, cutting of hair and 31 in bakery training),” said the press release.
“I am very hopeful and optimistic due to the support of the community, the world support, that many countries are supporting Venezuela, and insisting that Venezuela be treated in a fair and equitable manner, I think there are days much better ahead for Venezuela and we look forward to new projects and years of cooperation between Belize and Venezuela,” said Minister Fonseca.
The Venezuela embassy said Minister Fonseca agreed with Ambassador Argote that it’s important to advance the collaboration and cooperation plan in education, together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belize. The present cooperation plan includes an agreement with the University of Belize.
Minister Fonseca, the Venezuelan Embassy said, highlighted the importance of the INCES training for Belize saying that “we need much more to be done in that area”.
Fonseca also expressed Belize’s support for Venezuela.
“I am very hopeful and optimistic due to the support of the community, the world support, that many countries are supporting Venezuela, and insisting that Venezuela be treated in a fair and equitable manner, I think there are days much better ahead for Venezuela and we look forward to new projects and years of cooperation between Belize and Venezuela,” he said.
