MESSAGE FROM THE PRIME MINISTER OF BELIZE
Honourable John Briceno
Prime Minister of Belize
Minister of Finance,
Belize is once again center-stage as we showcase what makes us the #1 investment destination in the Central American and Caribbean region. Our biodiverse landscape with its verdant rainforests, fertile fields and blue seas, together with our rich cultural heritage represent but a snapshot of what makes our nation so alluring to visitors the world over. For investors, exceptional and untapped potential in areas, such as: Agritech, Tourism, the Blue Economy, Global Digital Services, Manufacturing, Renewable Energy, Ecosystem Services and the Creative Industries are highlights.
It is for these reasons and more that we welcome you to this, the second edition of the Belize Investment Summit, under the theme “Belize: Endless Opportunities.”
As Prime Minister, I am pleased to emphasize that the Government of Belize has prioritized inclusive economic development, aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals. Together with my Cabinet, we are proactively and continuously making advances in progressive and forward-thinking legal, policy, and procedural changes to create an investor-friendly environment that is conducive to doing business in Belize. This reflects the spirit of our #PlanBelize mandate to promote robust economic growth for all, and we look forward to accelerating both national and international investment growth that supports an increase in trade and small business development in order to achieve this.
At this time of heightened consciousness on the matter of climate vulnerability, Belize is proud to be leading the way, and to be sharing our experience, infusing innovative approaches to managing public debt while balancing development and environmental preservation. Together, we can achieve mutually beneficial results. I, therefore, wholeheartedly welcome you to experience what makes us a uniquely attractive investment destination.
BELIZE: ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES!
