U.C.B. holds Y2K symposium

Story Picture
The University College of Belize and the Ministry of Education will be holding a symposium on the possible ways in which the Y2K computer virus could affect Belize in the year 2000. The symposium will feature discussions with over two hundred representatives from the Government and private sector.

“The idea here is to pull experts and professionals in various fields of the Government and to inform the Belizean public as to in what ways the year 2000 might affect Belizeans. Also to say then how they are dealing with it as far as getting ready to handle the subjects and the information passed on to clients. It’s going to involve a number of individuals ranging from public utilities including B.T.L., B.E.L., to government banks, everybody.

We will be discussing health, telecommunications, education and finance. A number of other issues that will come to bear on the Belizean public quite heavily.”

The symposium will be held this Friday at the U.C.B. Belmopan Campus and starts at nine a.m.
