“To strengthen our bilateral relation – that is why I came here to Belize and then this year commemorates our establishment of diplomatic relationship with Japan and Belize. And also in November with cooperation with the embassy here, we will have a Japan week where we can share and promote Japanese culture, but anime and games so that people in Belize can know about Japanese culture and then with this anniversary we will strengthen our bilateral relationship and not only people to people exchanges, but also what we have doing such as economic cooperation and then support for medical systems.
