Developing A Country Profile for Business Processing Outsourcing In Belize


Over the past six years, thirteen (13) call centers have been established within central Belize. This is a clear indication that Belize has a fostering environment for the growth and development of the Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) Sector. BPO is one of the priority sectors identified within Component three (3) of BELTRAIDE’s Compete Caribbean Project. As a result of this, Compete Caribbean-IDB and the Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE), will be having its first ever workshop, “Analyzing The Potential of Developing The Business Processing Outsourcing Sector in Belize”; with the purpose of developing a country profile. This workshop will be held on Friday, November 16, 2012, from 8:30 a.m.- 12:00 p.m., at the George Price Center, City of  Belmopan.

Mr. Anupam Govil, Consultant from Avasant in the United States will be the moderator at this workshop.  Topics to be discussed include:

  • An overview of the Global BPO Sector
  •  BPO Near-shoring Trends and Opportunities of Regional Competition
  • Addressable Markets and Offerings for Belize
  • High Level Strategy for Belize to gain more visibility in the BPO industry.
