“As our delegation celebrates Europe Month, and its message of peace and cooperation, it is my hope that my various stops here in Belize show all concerned how special the EU-Belize relationship is.

Many lives are impacted, especially those with least resources, and it’s for this reason we keep pushing for these projects that mean so much to those involved,” Amadei said.
