The Prime Minister also remarked on the financial generosity of Belize’s bilateral friends, Taiwan. Earlier this month, the Taiwan Government through their Ambassador in Belize donated $60 million dollars which would support the Government’s budget. If you can recall, the Government is facing a severe financial crunch and has had to increase taxes on light bills, imports, beer, soft drinks, fuel and construction material to make up for the financial belt-tightening. But that may not be enough to make up for an increasing budget deficit, so Taiwan has been coming to the rescue. Some pundits believe Taiwan is really providing elections money with the incoming municipal election, but according to the PM, the funds are part of the normal arrangements.
