We reported this week on the convening of the Government’s Core Working Group. They are the group responsible for seeing that the Briceno administration’s Plan Belize is executed. This committee is preparing the PUP manifesto’s medium-term development strategy. As part of those efforts, the Opposition is being included. UDP Chairman, Senator Michael Peyrefitte received a letter yesterday from CEO Osmond Martinez, the committee’s chair, inviting it to a stakeholder consultation in the middle of September. They will be examining issues including poverty reduction, economic transformation, reducing the trade deficit and citizen security.
