Belize participates in CARICOM-Cuba Summit

Belize is participating in the Eighth Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Caribbean Community and the Republic of Cuba. As we reported, the Prime Minister of Belize, John Briceño is participating in the event, which is being held in the Barbados capital, Bridgetown. The host country’s Prime Minister Mia Mottley reiterated the region’s call for the U.S. to end the decades-long trade embargo on Cuba.

 

The trade embargo, imposed by U.S. President John F. Kennedy in February 1962, prevents American businesses and businesses organised under U.S. law or majority-owned by Americans from trading with any Cuban interest. Also speaking at the event was the CARICOM Chairman, Chandrikapersad Santokhi, the President of Suriname, who was optimistic about the day’s discussions.

After today’s event, PM Briceño will on Thursday and Friday attend the 56th Ordinary Meeting of the Heads of State and Government of the Central American Integration System (SICA) in Santiago de Los Caballeros, Dominican Republic.
