John Briceño, Prime Minister of Belize: “We’re lucky, well I should say thankful that I have to thank Haisam Diab I have to big him up, when the Minister of Tourism from Saudi Arabia wanted to come to Belize he contacted him and he arranged it and made sure that he came and we met him here at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs building. And we built a relationship and so they said we want to help you. So they have lent us money for the tertiary care hospital and now they are even lending us another 70 plus million dollars US for us to build energy, a solar power plant for Belize. But to finish with the hospital, now the plan is that once we get that done, and we met with the people from CABEI on Monday and because we were already looking at the Belmopan, the south, the northern regional, all of these hospitals that need to be upgraded but also now looking at once that is finished that we can now come back to Belize and then build another hospital on the south side of Belize City.”
