carnivalThis year marks the 35th anniversary of Belize’s Independence and the 218th anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye with celebrations being held under the theme, “Sovereign and Strong - Together as one”.


The good news tonight is that some of the highlights of the annual September celebrations for this year will be receiving extra assistance as the National Celebrations Commission today received a donation of forty thousand dollars from the Government of Taiwan.


The donation was over to NICH by His Excellency Benjamin Ho, Ambassador to Belize from the Republic of China (Taiwan) in an effort to strengthen the cultural exchange relationship between Belize and the Republic of Taiwan.


The significant donation received by Chairperson of the National Celebrations Commission Diane Haylock, will be used to support the NCC’s programming for annual September celebrations in Belize, especially the Carnival King and Queen Competition and Pan Yaad Steelband Contest. A release issued by the NCC commends Ambassador Ho and the Government of Taiwan as they continue to demonstrate tremendous support for the September Celebrations in Belize and their commitment to promote cultural exchanges between the two countries.
