Ambassador of Japan to Belize Kazuhiro Iryu presented his credentials to former Governor-General Sir Colville Young back in February of this year. Since then he has had several meetings with government officials. The most recent meeting he had was with CEO of the Ministry of Finance, Economic Development and Investment Doctor Osmond Martinez ten days ago. The focus was the recent programme approved by the Green Climate Fund Board, the decision-making body of GCF, entitled “Global Fund for Coral Reefs Investment Window” that will benefit the people and coastal areas of Belize. Japan and Belize have, over the many years, strengthened relations. Ambassador Iryu says his goal is to build more on that relation.
Japan is the second-highest donor to the GCF with total contributions of up to three billion US dollars.
