Rudy Archila Falla, and Minister-Counselor Denis Ortiz in Belize City for a discussion on initiatives to bolster the neighbouring countries’ economies through sustainable development and other joint efforts.

Hon. Perez explained to the Guatemalan ambassador his ministry’s mission to increase Belize’s gross domestic product through science-based management of Belize’s aquatic resources. He emphasized that his ministry’s principal aim is improving the overall livelihood of all Belizeans through sustainable development. H.E.
