BSCFA Disappointed Commission of Inquiry Won’t be Public

The Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association (BSCFA) has weighed in on the long-awaited start of the Commission of Inquiry into the Sugar Industry. The association says the commission is long overdue and of vital importance to the sugar industry and its stakeholders. However, the BSCFA is disappointed with the decision of the commission to not conduct its inquiry in public and urges the group to reconsider its decision. The association notes that it anticipates the group to make bold recommendations to overhaul and modernize the sugar industry to ensure its sustainability and competitiveness and provide a fair profit to both foreign and local investors, especially cane farmers. The BSCFA says it confirms its unwavering collaboration with the work of the commission and urges all stakeholders and entities to also do so to enable the commission to complete its report by the end of November 2024.
