MOHA Belizean delegation steered by Foreign Minister Hon. Wilfred Elrington left the country to attend the 28th Inter-sessional Meeting of the CARICOM Conference of Heads of Government in Georgetown, Guyana. At the two day Conference which began today, regional leaders will speak about a series of issues which are considered critical to development in the region such as Correspondent Banking, Tourism in the Region, the status of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) and Crime and Security.


In addition to that, the leaders are expected to validate decisions arising from the 37th Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM. Also, during closed-door sessions, issues concerning long-standing border disputes between Belize and Guatemala and Guyana and Venezuela will be discussed.


The Belizean delegation consists of four members namely Special Envoy for Women and Children Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow, CEO in the Ministry of Human Development Ms. Judith Alpuche, Belize’s CARICOM Ambassador H.E. Daniel Gutierrez and Director of International Cooperation in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Orla Kantun Coleman.
