Mayan Community supports NCL Project





The Mayan Community has come out in support of the Norwegian Cruise Line Project, calling it an “eco-friendly” development. According to the release, twelve Mayan villages were represented at a meeting held on September 15, where respected Mayan leaders publically expressed their support for the project. The Mayan leaders say that “The development will give outlying villages the opportunity to provide fruits, vegetables, arts and crafts to the island without ever having to leave their village. In addition, the leaders reiterated that villagers do not need to offer a tour or be in the tourism business to benefit from the development on Harvest Caye.” In addition to the Mayan community leaders, several Belizean elected officials were also in attendance, all who expressed their support for the project.
