“The Belize Cane Farmers having lately with BSI/ASR position of the cane farming of the bagasse.  We can say what they were trying to come in agreement with and so basically it is for them to share with us their status at this point in time and also we had the VIP’s which is the anti-corruption movement from Belmopan, they just appraised us with their vision and their existence and what is their way forward in this movement. So it was BTIA decision that me wanted for us to have a better understanding with what is really happening in our community and with our national issues and how we can engage in these types of forums with them.”


The forum article will be published in the BTIA’s quarterly publication of La Dulce Vista.
