Belize’s natural resources, pro-business investment climate, democratic stability, and incentives have led to steady growth in Foreign Direct Investments (FDI). The Government of Belize’s (GOB) strategic commitment to support the sustainable development of its priority industries, such as, Agriculture, Fisheries & Aquaculture, Offshore Outsourcing, Sustainable Energy, Logistics & Light Manufacturing, and Tourism, has contributed to a 17% increase of FDI inflows in 2016, when compared to 2015.
Guided by the National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan, the Tourism Industry contributed to approximately 40% of Belize’s GDP in 2016. Over the years, the GOB has cultivated airline connections, which span beyond sixteen cosmopolitan cities, and expects to remain steadfast in achieving over 3% annual growth in arrivals. As more people begin to explore Belize, additional investments are required to increase accommodations and hospitality services to fulfil the country’s niche tourism market. In 2018, Belize anticipates yet another record year in amassing FDIs, championed by Tourism & Travel and its competitive productive industries.
Belize has received international recognition as a tourist destination and recently won the “World Travel Awards” for Ambergris Caye. The New York Times also named Belize one of its “must visit” locations in 2017, while the Financial Times, via its fDiMagazine, awarded “Best Tourism Location of the Future 2017/2018”; with distinctions in “Best Investment Awards – Hotels”, “Best Enhanced Airlift”, and “Best Sustainable Strategy”. Belize has the right recipe for leisure and investment opportunities.
