The government has denied that its foreign aid programs are a form of “dollar
diplomacy.” That was the word from Presidential Office Spokesperson Sidney Lin on Monday.
Lin was referring to a Belizean report that Taiwan has promised to offer Belize US$60 million in aid. The report said US$40 million will be paid over four years and that the rest of US$20 million are donations.
Lin said the government’s foreign aid policy has been in place for years and that all programs are carried out in line with the law. [FULL STORY]
