Solidarity Letter to the Prime Minister of The Bahamas

Dear Honourable Prime Minister,

I have been following closely the news coverage of the passage of Hurricane Dorian through North Bahamas.

On behalf of the Government and People of Belize, I wish to express our condolences for any life lost and the significant damage to infrastructure caused as a result of the catastrophic category 5 hurricane.

As the People of The Bahamas commence to recover and reconstruct post-hurricane, we stand in solidarity with you; and further, look forward to assisting in any way we can through our National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) and through regional efforts organized by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

The ever-increasing occurrence of powerful hurricanes in our region is a clear and present reminder that our efforts to become a climate resilient region are prudent; and rightfully ought to be accorded our highest priority.

Please accept the assurances of my highest consideration.
