Exchange Missions between Belize and Taiwan

Today, a cheque of sixty thousand dollars was handed over to the government of Belize from the Republic of China (Taiwan) to facilitate one of two exchange investment missions between both countries to be launched in 2019 by the Ministry of Investment Trade and Commerce. The objectives are to increase foreign direct investment in priority industries, specifically the tourism industry, and provide trade opportunities that will help to increase revenues to G.O.B., while strengthening bilateral relationships enjoyed by both countries for thirty years.
