Creating a Link between Investment Opportunities in Belize and Taiwanese Investors

Remus Li-Kuo Chen

Today marks exactly three months since Ambassador Remus Li-Kuo Chen officially took up mission in Belize. He says that the initiative is linking potential Taiwanese investors with Belizean businesses. And it is the hope that by the end of the second mission later this year, solid business relationships would have been formed between investment opportunities in Belize and Taiwanese investors.

“The beauty about this new initiative is actually matchmaking; by inviting potential Taiwanese business leaders who have interest investing in Belize, to come and meet with Belizean local companies and their representatives to have in depth discussion. A small step now which may bring hopefully in the future many big steps in investment here in Belize. So this first investment mission, will target the tourism industry in Belize, the most promising and also profiting sector contributing to your economic development. Our embassy will work closely with the ministry and BELTRAIDE by inviting a group of Taiwanese business leaders in the relating field who now reside in the North American, especially the United States, who would have great interest to come here and invest in Belize.”

“The idea is for us to try and build partnerships with investors in Taiwan with potential business investment interests in Belize. So we are going to look at some of our shovel-ready projects, but we are also going to look at where we can tap into new investment dollars from companies in Taiwan, and hopefully bridge that partnership—not only for investment, but also starting to have the conversation in terms of trade facilitation. We do very little trade with Taiwan, at least from Belize to Taiwan. One of the products that we do have there is Marie Sharp’s, as you know, but how do we build on the opportunities—not only for investment dollars coming in, but for some of our products to actually get on the shelves in Taiwan.”
