Cabinet levels playing field for CARICOM Imports

Cabinet met in a regular session on Tuesday and there is some good news for Belizeans and Caribbean Community importers alike. It is expected that the approval for the removal of environmental tax from CARICOM will mean lower prices for consumers of CARICOM imports. The other order of the day concerned the cane farmers. And though for the past month some Orange Walk caneros have been at odds with GOB about land use, today the government approved of the renewal of the standard subsidy and license fees waiver. A license is still required, minus the fees. Cabinet is also giving a boost to the Attorney General’s Ministry, by approving additional staff and infrastructure.
