By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On December 21, 2022, Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Economic Development, and Investment, John Briceño handed over 10 Troop Lifting Vehicles to the Ministry of National Defence and Border Security.
The Prime Minister said that citizen security is a priority in Belize and, therefore, the protectors of all citizens must be equipped with the proper infrastructure and equipment to do their jobs.
The procurement of the vehicles is a direct contribution from the Belize Integral Security Programme (BISP), a BZ$60-million-project funded by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), which is intended to strengthen the capacities of the Belize Defence Force (BDF) to provide increased security for the citizens of Belize.
The Government of Belize says that the troop lifting vehicles form part of the total resource allocation for the Belize Defence Force, valued at approximately BZ$13,000,000 under the BISP. Under this programme, the BDF will benefit from several other initiatives.
