A little under a year ago, BELTRAIDE commenced a revitalization of its mandate to develop private sector opportunities in Belize. The organization’s new face now includes not only a renovated office facility, but also the creation of new departments staffed with dynamic, qualified people with keen focus on business and investor support who are responsive to a constantly changing environment.
The organization’s new board of directors has authorized the new direction for BELTRAIDE through the adoption of new Vision and Mission Statements, following a board retreat on October 18, 2011. This new Vision states that BELTRAIDE exists to “enable a dynamic and competitive business environment for Belize socio-economic development”. In order to realize this Vision, the organization will pursue a mission to “enhance Belize’s prosperity by fostering investor confidence, entrepreneurship, business growth and innovation.”
In an effort to meet its new mandate, BELTRAIDE’s new structure includes the development of three core areas of focus: Projects and Policy support, Business Development, and Business Facilitation.
