Inter-American Development Bank President Addresses Belize Investment Summit

“The proximity of Belize to the large markets of North America, cultural aspects, the large portion of bilingual workers and a mix of free trade agreements and other trade preferences make this country an advantageous destination for this kind of investment. The IDB has created a new tool kit of financial and technical support that we’re offering to help countries to attract investment from companies looking to shore up their supply chains today and we’re working to deploy several of these options to Belize.”
