Mexican Trade Mission Introduces Construction Material to Belizean Market

A mission from Chetumal is in Belize promoting its goods, services and ideas in the area of construction. Today they met with Belizean contractors and businessmen who may be interested in exploring a closer collaboration with suppliers from the north. The timing is good, since the country is in the midst of a construction boom, and it’s very likely that’s what caught the attention of these enterprising construction suppliers in Chetumal. We visited the Mexican Institute of Culture today where Mexican Embassy representative Javier Aguilar Morales told us that the session was a success.

“Today we had a construction and hardware materials trade mission. Some companies for Chetumal came to the institute of Mexico to expose their products and services, so that companies and people from Belize get to learn a little bit more about them.”

“What was the feedback like from Belizean; did Belizean participate?”


Javier Aguilar Morales

“Well they were very happy and also we are very happy to see that more then thirty representatives fro m companies on Belize came to see what they are offering and to exchange contact information so that they can do something maybe in the future or at least to learn what these companies are all about in Chetumal.”


Mike Rudon

“Normally when we see mission like this, its trades, goods, services a lot of products…it is the first time we have seen something like this; is it a result of a sort of construction boom that is taking place in Belize? We see a lot of construction happening, bridges, roads, buildings that sort of thing.”


Javier Aguilar Morales

“It has a little to be about that but also it is just, we just want people from Chetumal and businesses from Chetumal to come and learn a little bit more about Belize . Because obviously they see that there are opportunities here in Belize. But sometimes they just hear about it or get to learn about it on the internet. But it is completely different when they come and see with their own eyes what is happening here and exchange information with their counterparts here in Belize so that they can have a broader perspective or idea of what is happening in Belize and the opportunities. Here in Belize and also opportunities for Belizean or Belizean businessmen in Chetumal.”


Fifteen representatives from five different companies in Chetumal participated in the mission today, with products ranging from steel and paint to ceramic tiles and hardware products.
