The Government of Belize received a donation of computers and equipment valued at US$90,000 from the Government of the Republic of Korea through an official Development Assistance Programme for the fiscal year 2018 on Thursday, September 20th. Presenting the donation on behalf of the Government of the Republic of Korea was His Excellency Lee In-ho, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Belize, and receiving the equipment on behalf of the Government of Belize was Mrs. Deborah Domingo, Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Education.
The donation was orchestrated by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), a governmental agency dedicated to providing grant aid programs and supporting the sustainable socioeconomic growth of partner countries like Belize.
It is expected that this generous donation will outfit Bishop O.P Martin R.C School, Belmopan Methodist High School, More Tomorrow Government School, Franks Eddy Government School, Big Falls R.C School, Forest Home Methodist School, Fire Burn Government School, and Paraiso Government School with state of the art computers and will allow for the delivery of high quality skills to students and teachers of the institutions.
The Republic of Korea and Belize commemorate the 31st anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations this year. The Korean Government has generously supported Belize in areas such as human resource development, capacity building and technical cooperation. Through these donations, the Government of the Republic of Korea hopes to strengthen the bonds of friendship and cooperation between the people and Governments of Korea and Belize.
