Adhering to Protocols is Important for CFZ Reopening

Vice Chairman of the Corozal Free Zone, Anil Hotchandani has also chimed in on the proposed reopening of the free zone in the days ahead.  He says that while strict measures will be put in place upon the resumption of business, adhering to the new protocols is mandatory to ensure the safety of customers, as wells as the local business community in the free zone.

“As per what the prime minister had promised that he would open the Corozal Free Zone and I see that there is a lot of motivation on the part of the present administration to get it going.  So we had a meeting between the directors of the Corozal Chamber of Commerce, the Executive Chairman Mr. Grinage, myself as the Vice Chairman and the new C.E.O., Mr. Neri Ramirez, the minister, Honorable Abelardo Mai, his C.E.O. Servulo Baeza and Mr. Digno.  They all met us in the free zone and they have indicated by consultation and they had brought a medical expert and he made certain suggestions because we are both on the very same page, it‘s the private sector and government, that the free zone has to open, but safety is number one priority.  We don‘t want to have a zone open and there‘s an influx of problems with the pandemic and that the cases go up.  So it‘s a back and forth where we are going to be getting together kits and rapid tests.  We can‘t do rapid tests on all people coming in, and other protocols.  All the stores are going to be given a checklist and those who don‘t abide by the checklist are not going to be allowed to go in.  So that’s where we are.”
