Minister Panton Tours Southern Belize

Tracy Panton

Minister Panton also spoke about a tour she recently concluded in southern Belize in which she met with clients of BELTRAIDE, who applied for incentives from government and to address concerns that investors from the south may have. This, Panton says, is important for the future of the business and productive sectors.

“To hear from them directly what immediate concerns they may be having, how may we be able to address those concerns as a government and how we can help to strengthen the partnerships we already have; how we can continue to ensure that the products that are certified for export have greater access to markets that we are now negotiating with. I think it is important for us to be on the ground, for us to see and hear for ourselves. It is easy to sit in your office, but the relationships we cultivate and the networks we build when we are on the ground are crucially important for the business sector and for the productive sector.”
