By BBN Staff: Secretary-General of CARICOM, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque extended congratulations on behalf of CARICOM to Belize on the 38th anniversary of Independence.
“Belize’s theme “From Maya Grandeur to Modern Glory, Together Let’s Shape the Belizean Story!” underscores the determination of Belizeans to move forward in unity while keeping alive their rich heritage. The people of Belize through hard work and dedication to their country have ensured significant progress in many areas while building a nation of which they are justifiably proud,” LaRocque stated.
In addition, La Rocque said that Belize has played a critical role in CARICOM construct most notably in leading the portfolio for Justice and Governance in the CARICOM quasi-cabinet.
