Belize will be getting a Presidential visit in mid-March 2016 by MA Ying-Jeou, the Taiwanese head.  Belize is one of several stops that the 65-year-old Taiwanese President will be making. President Ma Ying-Jeou will meet with Belize’s Prime Minister, Dean Barrow and will also be meeting with Guatemala’s recently elected President, Jimmy Morales as well as the Prime Minister of Saint Kitts and Nevis, Timothy Harris; Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Prime Minister Kenny Anthony of Saint Lucia.  According to the online article by Focus Taiwan, the President who is currently serving his second consecutive term will be delivering a speech at the Central American Parliament headquartered in Guatemala City.  The Central American Parliament also known as PARLACEN is a political institution and parliamentary body of the Central American Integration System (SICA). President Ma Ying-Jeou made his first visit to Belize in May 2009 at which time he signed a number of agreements and was awarded the Order of Belize.  He has been serving as President of Taiwan since May 2008 when he was first elected and continued in that capacity following his re-election in 2012.
