Belize to Install Advanced Radar to Combat Transnational Drug Trafficking
The Government of Belize is hoping to strengthen its fight against transnational national drug trafficking will the installation of a new radar. The advanced radar will be a step up from the country’s current system, which cannot detect illicit aircrafts prior to entering Belize’s airspace. The new tracking system will be able to detect and enhance the tracking of these planes. CEO of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Kennedy Carrillo, explained that the radar will be installed in the coming months.
The 8.5 million US dollar primary radar is being provided by the Government of the United States of America.
