Ministry of Blue Economy concerned over the country’s lack of a cruise port policy

While climate change continues to be a threat to our marine resources, the conservation community has also raised concerns surrounding Belize not having an effective cruise port policy. The government has already approved the construction of two cruise port facilities and another is re-seeking approval from the National Environmental Appraisal Committee (NEAC). The NGO community has stated that the construction of these facilities in one general area may lead to disastrous effects on the environment. CEO of the Ministry of Blue Economy, Kennedy Carrillo says her ministry is paying a close eye on the situation and is hoping that an amicable solution can be reached to protect the environment while promoting economic growth.
