Costa Rican Foreign Minister Seeks Partnerships with Belize

The Foreign Minister of Costa Rica, Rodolfo Solano Quiros, is in Belize to discuss cooperation, tourism, climate change, and migration, among other regional issues.  Today, Belize’s Foreign Affairs Minister Eamon Courtenay and Minister Solano signed two joint declarations and two memorandums of understanding.  One is for the establishment of a Strategic Association for Integral Cooperation.  The second has to do with the preservation of oceans and seas.  An M.O.U. for cooperation on climate change was also signed, as well as an M.O.U. between the Institute of Tourism in Costa Rica and the Ministry of Tourism in Belize.  Here is what the Costa Rican Foreign Minister told us about the cooperative relationship between his country and Belize, immediately after engaging in bilateral conversations in Belmopan.

“We just agreed to upgrade our bilateral relations into a strategic partnership called Comprehensive Corporation Partnership, that we are going to identify the corporation areas, mostly in political dialogue, in corporation, and of course trade and investment. For Costa Rica and Belize that share universal values, as I mentioned, democracy, human rights, freedom of press. It is very important to work together in this context of the pandemic and the process of discovery. So, we spoke about specific programs to create opportunities, mostly for the young people. We need to create the conditions to be part, actives part with a participation in the global chain supply system, and in that way Costa Rica and Belize has a lot of experiences that will help with the recovery of the economy and impact positively in the people.”
