Mexico & Belize work on border, bridge and bilateral relations

Mexico has an important partner in trade, transportation and the security of our Northern border. A few days ago, the sixth Bi-national Commission’s Technical Meeting was held in Quintana Roo. Some of the topics discussed included ways to handle narco-trafficking and improving the movement of people at the border. The press officer for the Mexican Embassy says that one accomplishment of the meeting was setting a deadline for the opening of the new International bridge in 2011.

“They both have made a pledge to work together in order to work for the environmental protection of the Rio Hondo also they are going to work in order to modernize the border crossing in Chetumal, and to reinforce and to speed up the construction of the facilities around the new international bridge that is going to allow that more people and goods can cross in this new facility. Also another agreement is that both countries are going to work jointly in order to implement the Central American and México Security Strategy. This is important in order to fight international crime and at the same time to fight drug trafficking and other illicit traffic. Also, both countries agreed in work together in order to exchange information against drug trafficking, against the illicit traffic of people and arms at the order, they are going to exchange intelligence information and México also pledged to continue supporting Belize in training for the police force and also for other assistance in order to fight crime.”

“The smooth transition of border crossing right now it seems a bit tedious is this something that was discussed at the meeting?”

Marcelino Miranda

“Oh yeah, that was discussed and I have to announce that both countries have agreed in working together in order to facilitate the crossing of people at the border especial both countries are going to issue or in the case of México, are going to continue issuing the border card that will allow Mexicans and Belizeans to cross faster, quicker.”

Miranda says an update on the construction of new facilities at the border will be presented to leaders of Mexico and Belize during an official visit on October eighteenth and nineteenth in Mexico City. At the Commission’s meeting both countries signed a technical and scientific cooperation agreement to improve education in science and technology.  An education and cultural agreement will soon be penned to increase scholarships for graduate and post graduate degrees.

    Not sure about guns coming through Mexico that would be pretty risky though possible, would be much easier to pass them through the Belize customs via ocean liner hell if whole container of stuff comes up missing at the customs in Belize City how hard would a few guns be to pass through. There are already lots of corrupted custom officers there to facilitate the movement after all the customs department is a big cash cow for dirty politicians and if the government wants to catch the corruption it’s as easy as 123 but they don’t the money collected from the corruption is being passed up the ladder like everything else with the Belize government and this has nothing to do with a single political party with all the things that they talk against each other something’s are just better left the way they are so that they can continue the corruption and not bring light to the issues, would be interesting to have a real audit on the books at the customs department not just one that will reconcile the numbers but one that will seek out discrepancies between shipments and their corresponding tariffs that was collected and to question those discrepancies but of course the government will not allow this since the corruption has got to continue that is how politicians create their legacy.
