BCCI Press Release July 13th-1

BCCI calls for the government to be transparent in real estate rentals

The Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry has called out the Government of Belize to adhere to the principles of transparency, accountability and good governance. According to a release from BCCI the government is not being transparent and fair as it relates to employment and real estate rental contracts.

The Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry has called out the Government of Belize to adhere to the principles of transparency, accountability and good governance. According to a release from BCCI the government is not being transparent and fair as it relates to employment and real estate rental contracts. They stated quote “there have been instances when just before an election, the government of the day awards -without any attempt at transparency- employment and real estate rental contracts that extend far beyond their term in office. This unduly burdens an incoming government and saddles taxpayers with costs which outweigh the value of the good or service as well as contractual agreements with penalties for early termination.” end of quote. The BCCI has demanded the Government to refrain from entering into any further longstanding contracts without a transparent tendering process.  With the demand of transparency, the BCCI failed to point out any specific instance that may have spurred the release.  Our newsroom could only speculate that it may have something to do with the rental of a space at Barrow and Williams Law Firm to house the Forensics Unit.
