Three days after Cabinet met in regular session on June fifteenth, the briefing has been released by the Press Office. Among the highlights was a report from the Prime Minister’s office on his first official visit to Guatemala.  The briefing says discussions were held on trade, security cooperation, migration, support for the Organization of American State’s Office in the Adjacency Zone and the improvement of bilateral relations through the work of the Joint Commission.  In addition, the Prime Minister met with the Guatemalan Chamber of Commerce and Industry where he welcomed private investments to Belize and met with Belizeans studying in Guatemala.  It should be noted that no Belizean press accompanied the PM on this visit.  In other regional news from Cabinet, the members received a report from the Minister of Foreign Affairs Eamon Courtenay on a statement issued along with Costa Rica, Guatemala, Panama, the Dominican Republic, and Spain, reminding the Government of Nicaragua that actions against important opposition leaders threaten the free exercise of democracy.  The Minister of Agriculture reported a bumper crop of vegetables in 2021 and Cabinet endorsed a pilot project from the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing to provide low income housing.
