The Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (Beltraide) participated in two business events last week as part of its outreach programme to keep Belizeans informed about its main role in trade and investment promotion and facilitation.
The first event was the Business Career and Opportunities Fair held on Thursday, 10th March at the University of Belize Business Campus in Belize City. The event was the first of its kind and was organized by the UB Student Government to allow students in their last year of studies to make inquiries about career opportunities at the participating businesses.
Beltraide also participated in the Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) Open Day held on Friday, 11th March at the Sacred Heart College auditorium in San Ignacio. Over 800 students from high schools in San Ignacio and Santa Elena attended the event, which aimed to create greater awareness on BCCI’s role and functions.
Both events offered BELTRAIDE the opportunity to inform numerous business students on the role of the organization and its various units.
BELTRAIDE is a statutory body of the Ministry of Economic Development, Petroleum, Investment, Trade and Commerce. It is headquartered at No. 14 Orchid Garden Street in Belmopan and its mission is to enhance Belize’s prosperity by fostering investment confidence, entrepreneurship, business growth and innovation.
