Belize – TaiwanICDF donates breeding Sheep to Guatemala 

BELIZE / GUATEMALA –  The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise (MAFSE), in collaboration with the Taiwan International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) Breeding Sheep and Goat Production and Guidance System Enhancement Project, donated four breeding sheep to the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food of the Republic of Guatemala (MAGA) on April 29.

The Dorper, Katahdin, and Barbados Black Belly sheep breeds will be used to improve the existing genetic stock at MAGA.

The donation follows a memorandum of agreement signed between MAFSE and MAGA in 2022 to advance the agricultural development of both countries in technical areas such as livestock, agro-processing, fruit trees, research, innovation, and technological transfer. This agreement has also resulted in Belize’s technical officers receiving training in various thematic areas in Guatemala and Guatemalan officers visiting Belize to offer training sessions.

The government of Belize, and by extension, the ministry of agriculture, food security and enterprise, remains committed to regional partnerships for the growth and development of the agricultural sector.

This donation also forms a wider partnership with the government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) through advancing the sheep sub-sector in Belize and the region.
