The Belize Investment Portfolio (BIP) Campaign is an initiative launched with the aim 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.

Additionally, there have been plenary sessions mainly on the current state of the industry, and investment opportunities offered in Central America, as well as outsourcing challenges of the region. Representatives from each Central American country were also able to highlight individual competitive advantages from their country in the plenary session “Meet the Agencies”.
