Last week, Latin Finance, the premier financial publication covering the markets of Latin America and the Caribbean, announced that Belize’s restructuring of that “Superbond” is the 2013 Sovereign Restructuring Deal of the Year.  Gathered alongside representatives of the region’s top corporations, sovereign ministries of finance, investment banks and law firms, the Government of Belize formally received the award at a ceremony held at Gotham Hall in New York City on January 16, 2014. Accepting the award on behalf of the people of Belize and the Prime Minister was the Speaker of the House, Hon. Michael Peyrefitte.vlcsnap-2014-01-20-19h42m10s8
