The Government will most likely change in 8 months time. Also there is speculation that this Government is to sell a 8,000 acre tranch of North Island in any case. They cannot enact the changes until that transaction has been completed.
I think people are confusing what the definition of "Caye" properties is. IHMO I believe the GOB is refering to the leasing of Government owned ISLANDS - bodies of land surrounded by water. But the 8,000 acres tract of property on Ambergris Caye is not an island it is a tract of land located on an island.
