Taiwan Will Fund Hospital For San Pedro
The Taiwanese have agreed to gift the government a grant for a long awaited, long promised but never delivered new hospital in San Pedro.
The PM introduced it as the highlight of his speech:
Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister
"I am elated to formally announce a USD 16.8m grant from Taiwan for the design and construction of a new hospital for Ambergris Caye, that hospital to commence construction in this fiscal year."
"The new hospital will be a 45-bed, 28,000 square feet state of the art facility providing primary and secondary care services. Others before us made hollow promises to build this much needed facility. It is this PUP Government that will finally deliver for the people of Ambergris Caye and of Belize Rural South."
