NCC Presents Checks to Municipalities
The Hon. Francis Fonseca, Minister of Education, Culture, Science and Technology and Chairman of the National Celebrations Commission (NCC), today convened the second meeting of the NCC with the Working Committee and the mayors (representatives) of all municipalities at the House of Culture in Belize City.
As the Government of Belize has committed its support to all municipalities for the observance of their individual September Celebrations agendas, the minister this morning disbursed funding to each municipality, received by mayors, deputy mayors and/or selected representatives.
The committee has maintained the importance of being celebratory, responsible and resourceful when planning for the 40th Anniversary of Belize’s Independence and the 223rd Anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye. All members were enthusiastic about this year’s celebrations. Understanding the importance of adhering to the COVID-19 regulations, the committee pledged to encourage their stakeholders and people of their municipality to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
This will allow us to remain safe while we celebrate, provide a platform for our cultural and creative sector and rebuild our economy.
