Prime Minister Briceno Hopeful of Cooperation from BSI/ASR for Sugar Industry Commission Inquiry

Prime Minister John Briceno weighed in today on the work of the Commission of Inquiry in the sugar industry.  He particularly spoke on the reluctance of BSI/ASR to divulge certain information from the company. Briceno remarked that he is aware of the factory’s stance, but he remains hopeful that the commissioners will still be able to provide a positive way forward to enhance the sugar industry.

Hon. John Briceño, Prime Minister of Belize: “I think any private company can make whatever statement they believe that is in their interest. They’ve been saying it from day one that certain information they were not prepared to provide so it’s no surprise. What is important though is that the commissioners that we got are highly qualified, they’re very skilled in what they’re doing and they believe that they’ll be able to come up with a report within the six months they believe they probably can do it even before then.”

The commission has so far met with government officials and have had a tour of the BSI/ASR factory.
