Dr. Albert Williams, associate professor of finance and economics, H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship, recently spoke in Belize at a conference sponsored by Oceana, a non-profit group that focuses on protecting the oceans.

The conference theme was "The Energy of Nature and the Nature of Energy" with a focus on discussing the pros and cons of off-shore oil drilling in Belize. Dr. Williams' presentation was on the economics of sustainability.

As the first presenter, Dr. Williams set the stage for the conference by providing economic arguments for and against off-shore oil drilling. The guest speaker for the conference was Alexandra Cousteau, the granddaughter of Jacques Cousteau, the world renowned explorer, conservationist, filmmaker, innovator, scientist, photographer, author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water. Cousteau is continuing the work of her grandfather.

"Allowing off-shore drilling will be one of the most difficult decisions for the people of Belize," Dr. Williams commented following his return from the conference. The discussion at the conference included fishermen, tourism business people, University of Belize students, representatives of other non-profit organizations, concerned citizens and the media. Dr. Williams provided interviews to local radio stations following his presentation.
