Belize Investment Portfolio Campaign to fast-track investment in Belize


The Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE), is pleased to announce the official launch the Belize Investment Portfolio Campaign on Friday, 25th November at the Radisson Fort George Hotel.

BELTRAIDE is able to present this historic campaign in support by its line ministry, the Ministry of Economic Development, Petroleum, Investment, Trade and Commerce, as well by ConnectAmericas, of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), and the Caribbean Association of Investment Promotion Agencies, (CAIPA).

The countrywide campaign is expected to foster the development of a national portfolio to fast-track investment generation efforts, both local and foreign, through targeted matchmaking of pre-packaged investment concepts and projects.

Through the advancement of the campaign, BELTRAIDE, through its technical unit BelizeINVEST, mandated to serve as Belize’s National Investment Promotion Agency (IPA), expects to further substantiate selected investment concepts submitted by key public sector Government Ministries and stakeholders into actionable business cases aligned with national development priorities.

Additionally, the campaign strives to support qualified private sector investment projects seeking financing and / or investment partners by promoting and matchmaking these “shovel ready” business opportunities through various platforms regionally, inclusive of ConnectAmericas and CAIPA, key supporters and collaborators of this initiative in Belize.

 

The official launch of the Belize Investment Portfolio Campaign will be held on Friday, November 25th, 2016 at the Cahal Pech Room, Radisson Fort George Hotel and Marina, Belize City commencing at 9:00 am to 12:30 pm.

Export Guide Launch On “How to Export To Central America and Dominican Republic”


As a result of the Market Access Regional Program, implemented through the Regional Centre for the Promotion of Micro and Small Enterprises in Central America and the Dominican Republic (CENPROMYPE) and the Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE), the toolkit “Exporting to Central America and the Dominican Republic” will be launched on November 6th, 2012 from 8:30am – 12:00pm, at Radisson Fort George Hotel & Marina.

This initiative seeks to promote regional trade as an opportunity to promote economic development so that the market is consolidated as a promotional space, to increase interdependence and opportunities for stakeholders in the region, including, governments, businesses and workers.

Prime Minister’s Forum 2012- Opening Remarks by CEO, Ministry of Trade, Investment Promotion, Private Sector Development and Consumer Protection, Michael Singh


Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen.

Dorian has done a good job of acknowledging our attendees, but I would like to go a bit further by giving special recognition to the members of the Economic Development Committee, often referred to as the EDC.  My co-chair, Ms. Kay Menzies, from the Private Sector, Mr. John Woods, Mr. Pat Andrews, Mr. Allen Reimer, Ms. Sue Courtenay, and from the Government, CEO Ms. Audrey Wallace, Mr. Alan Slusher, CEO Jose Alpuche, and CEO Sharman Hyde, and bringing it all together, Mrs. Amparo Masson, our Director of Public/Private Dialogue, who was also very instrumental in the planning of today’s event.  And of course a very warm welcome to everyone in attendance today.

Almost one year ago, we started something very special. We met in this very same room under the theme, “Turning the Corner”, from that gathering was born a new partnership between the private sector and government.  Over this past year, we have made great strides in building on this partnership.  Our EDC team has been meeting almost twice a month, and has been working tirelessly on developing an agenda for change. Often we had differing opinions, but we always agreed on one thing; that we all want best for Belize, and that together we have the power of change.
