P.U.P. Leader Says 34 Years Down…What’s Next?

Francis Fonseca

The address by P.U.P. Leader Francis Fonseca was brief and unlike previous years, there was no pointed criticism of government over critical issues. Fonseca seemed pensive as he spoke about the lessons learned from thirty-four years of Independence, but more importantly, what lies ahead.

 

Francis Fonseca, Leader of the Opposition

“What will we make of the next thirty-four years? What is the national vision for this next chapter of our young nation’s life? And are we, each of us, prepared to work and sacrifice to achieve that vision and create the society we say we aspire to? How can we stand and work together to give focused and urgent attention to job creation, to fixing our ailing education system, to ensuring that all our people, whoever they are and wherever they live, have access to affordable health care…to fighting the scourge of crime and violence. Nation building is not about wishful thinking. It is about hard work, commitment and participation. Each of us, as citizens of this, our beloved Belize, has a duty and obligation to be engaged in its growth and development. This, after all is the central message of Independence…one nation, one people united in purpose to build a stronger, better society in which hope and opportunity abound.”
