Romanian Ambassador Visits Belize

Earlier this week, Romanian Ambassador Daniela Gitman visited Belize and met with the Prime Minister and other government officials from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Education. The visit was to discuss bilateral cooperation between both countries. It’s been twenty-six years since diplomatic ties were established between Romania and Belize and the government is looking to diversify the scope of the cooperation. The meetings looked at the national development framework of Belize as it relates to health and education, as well as good governance and democratic capacity building. Gitman spoke about a project proposal for Latin America and the Caribbean region and how Belize falls within the scope of that project.

“We have discussed the possibility of having more Belizean students in our universities. In Romania, we have ninety-two universities that are ready to accommodate the presence of the students here. We discussed about fellowships, meaning that specialized engineers or special doctors that would like to take advantage of the labs, the facilities, the hospitals or the factories in Romania are more than welcomed to do their specialization there. The possibilities to work in the academic field are equally valid for medicine, for pharmacy, for engineering, for IT and so on. So we were very happy with the results of the first dialogue that we had with the high ranking officials of the Ministry of Education. Then we discussed cooperation on agriculture and food security; we discussed about cyber security; we discussed about disaster risk management and enhancing resilience of population when it comes about disaster risk management. We discussed about the erosion of the coastal region and how we Romania can work together with other European partners to the benefit of combating the climate change effects here in Belize.”
