The visit of the Prime Minister of Belize comes a day after a meeting between the Vice President of the Republic, Delsey Rodríguez, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Immigration of Belize, Eamon Courtenay, to evaluate the mechanisms that would be needed to strengthen allow business relations.
During the Working Day, the two officials reaffirmed the need to expand cooperation ties in areas that can bring prosperity and well-being to the people.
Briefly, last October, Belize signed a memorandum of understanding with Venezuela to strengthen cooperation in education and vocational technical training. Since 2020, both the countries have exchanged knowledge in the textile and agriculture sectors.
Diplomatic relations between Belize and Venezuela date back to April 25, 1989. However, it would be from the arrival of Commander Hugo Chávez that it assumed a strategic nature in the areas of energy, agriculture, commerce and education.
