During a high-level forum held on Wednesday, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Eamon Courtenay, spoke about how the organization has grown by leaps and bounds.

Belizean career educator, Nelson Longsworth, who served as the Chief Exam Officer for the Caribbean Council of Examinations, shared how the organization has played a vital role in advancing education in the region.
