Chetumal Businesses Concerned About Belize’s Tourist Advisory  

Considering the recent spike in cartel-related violence in Chetumal the Government of Belize issued a statement advising Belizeans to exercise caution when traveling across the northern border. Amir Padilla Espadas, President of the private sector organization, Canaco Chetumal, has expressed concern over the potential harm to Chetumal’s local economy, as Belizean commerce is a major contributor. In an interview with Minister of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries, Kareem Musa was asked about the advisory.

Having done their consultation with our embassy in Mexico City, as well as liaising with our counterparts, our Mexican representatives here in Belize. And that decision was taken.
