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.

The Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE), under the auspices of the Ministry responsible for Investment, Trade and Commerce, is mandated to facilitate and promote investment in Belize. The massive investment happening at Harvest Caye in the southern part of the country is yet another vivid example of BELTRAIDE’s efforts to foster investments.
On Tuesday November 15, 2016 Belize Island Holdings Limited, a subsidiary of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd, held a soft opening for its Eco/Adventure Cruise Port at Harvest Caye.
Harvest Caye sits a few miles south from the Placencia mainland and it takes only eighteen minutes to get there by boat. Upon arrival, the visitor cannot help but to enter into a state of wonderment as the vast beauty of the island unfolds.
Its turquoise water, sandy beach lined with beach beds, huge pier, and array of restaurants and bars, butterfly farm, nature trails, the welcome center, shopping centers, massive lighthouse tower used for zip lining, water sports facilities and its condescending giant pool all infuse the visitor’s amazement.
The Eco/Adventure Cruise Port will allow cruise line passengers to experience Belize at its finest on the island that has all the imaginable amenities to pamper the discerning tourist.
Harvest Caye is stunningly spectacular! But so is the continuous support the project received from the Government of Belize.
Like Harvest Caye there are also other projects that are benefiting from the Government’s keen commitment to foster investment.
