Royal Caribbean Group Responds to Shyne Barrow

The Royal Caribbean Group, one of three parties that have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding regarding the construction of Port of Magical Belize, has responded to a letter written by Opposition Leader Shyne Barrow several weeks ago.  On Friday, R.C.G.’s Vice President of Destination Development, Joshua Carroll wrote to Barrow addressing several concerns that were raised by the parliamentarian in a previous correspondence on June twelfth.  The letter, written on behalf of Chief Executive Officer Jason Liberty states, “R.C.G. is fully committed to ensuring a fair, transparent, and sustainable process in Belize, and in each of the destinations we visit around the globe.  We take this responsibility incredibly serious and conduct a multi-step due diligence process to ensure that each of our initiatives protects the surrounding environment and benefit’s the local community”. Elsewhere in the response, Carroll writes, “R.C.G. has been evaluating the progress of the three port projects situated near Belize City. Over the course of the past year, we have invested considerable resources to conduct an in-depth analysis of each project, evaluating how each aligns with our guiding principles for sustainable and operationally viable developments. The review was done in collaboration with a globally recognized infrastructure advisory firm specializing in the planning, environmental impact assessment, and design of facilities that shape and serve global coastlines.  Following our analysis, we determined that the Port of Magical Belize is the only project, of the three, that meets our standards for environmental impact and operational viability”.  Elsewhere in the letter, the issue surrounding the sensitive ecosystems surrounding One Man’s Caye, as well as the nearby channel, was also raised.
