Opposition Supports Stake Bank Project

Feb.5,2014“We wish to offer our support for this project and in arriving at that offer of support; we looked at essentially four criteria: (1) is this project good for the economy of Belize? We believe so that it will be good for Belize; we thing that it will be critically important to the future of the cruise tourism industry which is obviously directly related to the economic development of Belize (2) have all the environmental clearances been met? Have all the technical people signed off on the project and given their approval on the environmental side? My understanding is that has been done and finally, the developer, Mr. Feinstein and stake bank team are Belizeans who, I think, have a consistent history of investing in Belize and putting their money back in the country and so, in offering our support, we looked at that criteria and we simply want to place that on the record.”

Mike Feinstein is the same developer that made the Fort Street Tourism Village a reality, and a successful one at that. For two days a week during the low season and up to five days a week during the high season, the entire North Front Street area is transformed into a bustling community, where hundreds of vendors, hair-braiders, tour guides and operators can make a decent, dignified living.”
