A hundred and seventy people from within the Cayo district have completed economic empowerment training through a collaboration between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Immigration, and the Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan). The Ministry and Embassy celebrated the conclusion of the Women Economic Empowerment in the Adjacency Zone of Belize Project this week. The project saw 16 cohorts totaling a hundred and ten women and sixty men trained between March and June. The participants were trained in areas such as beauty, baking and cooking, hospitality, foreign languages, customer service, bartending, and front desk management training for micro and small business. The project was implemented under the framework of the “Enhancing the Economic Empowerment of Women in Latin America and the Caribbean in the COVID-19 Post-Pandemic Era: Technical Assistance for Women Employment, Entrepreneurship, and Financial Inclusion” project. It was co-implemented by the Ministry and Taiwan International Cooperation and Development Fund (ICDF). Present at the closing ceremony for the program were Ambassador Her Excellency Amalia Mai, CEO of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, and H.E. Lily Li-Wen Hsu, Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan), who both praised the participants for acquiring new skills for the support of their families and the development of their communities.
