By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, Prime Minister John Briceño received the Presidency Pro-Tempore (PPT) of the Central American Integration System (SICA) from the outgoing PPT, Luis Rodolfo Abinader Corona, President of the Dominican Republic, at the 56th Meeting of Heads of State and Government of SICA in Santiago de Caballeros, Dominican Republic.
Prime Minister Briceño congratulated the Dominican Republic for its accomplishments during the term of its presidency and pledged Belize’s full support in advancing the efforts of the Dominican Republic on the implementation of SICA’s regional agenda.
As the PPT, Belize will be steering the regional integration process based on the 5 priority pillars of SICA integration, which are economic and social integration, institutional strengthening, democratic security, climate change, and sustainable development.
Along with these pillars, Belize will also focus on issues high on its national development agenda such as climate change, food security, migration, and deeper engagement with CARICOM and SICA.
Prime Minister Briceño was accompanied by Eamon Courtenay, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Immigration; Ambassador Amalia Mai, Chief Executive Officer for Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade; and Alfonso Gahona, Director of International Affairs in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Belize’s presidency will be for the first 6 months of 2023.
