Expanding Belize’s Export Offerings to Guatemala

Eamon Courtenay

The Belize-Guatemala Joint Commission is also being reinvigorated and, through the existing Partial Scope Agreement, trade will be expanded to include other goods and services following a meeting with the business community.


Eamon Courtenay, Minister of Foreign Affairs

“That commission had held meetings and had set up different desks and tables for officials to deal with sanitary and phyto-sanitary business facilitation, etc.  And we have committed to having those entities start their work and working diligently and most importantly to facilitating a meeting with the private sector.  We have put on the table an increase in the number of products that Belize wants to be covered by the Partial  Scope Agreement and Guatemala undertook to review them and The claim by Guatemala to our territory, to our islands and sea, is before the I.C.J. by a decision of our people.  The purpose of this meeting is not to discuss that but to discuss the other areas for cooperation and other concerns between our two countries.”
