As technology continues to evolve globally, the demand for Information Technology Enabled Services (ITES) simultaneously continues to escalate opening a gateway for Belize as a competitive nearshore and offshore services destination in fostering numerous investment opportunities in the Outsourcing industry.

 

As Belize’s national trade and investment promotion agency, the Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE), along with twenty (20) additional delegates from trade promotion agencies in Latin America and the Caribbean, participated in the 6th Latin American and Caribbean Outsourcing and Offshoring Summit, Outsource2LAC, held in San Jose, Costa Rica on March 15 – 16, 2017. This year’s event was organized by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and Costa Rica’s Trade Promotion Agency, ProComer, which sought to foster this prominent sector through seminars on the latest trends in global outsourcing and Business to Business (B2B) meetings between buyers and service providers.

 

A combination of over 500 attendees from Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), Europe, Asia and North America, participated in the event. Belize’s delegation not only comprised of BELTRAIDE but also included BPO operators, namely, Belize Virtual Center and Sai Infosys. Both centers participated in approximately 13 B2B meetings respectively and were able to network and gain capacity from the event.

 

Representation from BelizeINVEST and EXPORTBelize, units of BELTRAIDE, will proactively continue to work closely with key local, regional and international stakeholders in ensuring continued growth of the evolving Offshore Outsourcing Industry working towards additional value-added services in Information Technology and Innovation.
