FOREWORD

The Government of Belize continues to place special emphasis on establishing this country as a reputable and reliable
supplier of quality goods and services. Notwithstanding its relatively small size, Belize’s export sector capacity and
capability continues to grow and remain competitive in particular niche markets such as papayas and hot-pepper. The
export sector has adopted competitiveness and quality as selling points as it seeks to improve even further an already
impressive record.

The Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE) was mandated to be the implementing arm of
government policy in the area of Export Promotion and Investment. BELTRAIDE has been successful in producing its
first edition of an Importers and Exporters Directory worthy of the highest commendation. The directory complements
other initiatives that BELTRAIDE has undertaken such as the Exporter’s Manual and The Priority Sectors for Investment
and Export Promotion. BELTRAIDE, as part of its active support for trade globalization, industrial activities and foreign
investment, sincerely hopes that this directory will stimulate further business with Belize.

The Government of Belize, in order to facilitate the best enabling environment and infrastructure, is engaged in a series of
international trade negotiations. We are committed in the negotiation process for the Free Trade Areas of the Americas.
The globalized trade arena has posed its share of challenges to the Belize economy, but our exporters have been able
to maintain their presence in traditional markets such as CARICOM, the United States of America and Europe, while
making important inroads into non-traditional markets such as Japan.

We take this opportunity to express on behalf of the Ministry of Home Affairs and Investment and BELTRAIDE to
thank all those involved in producing this Directory of Importers and Exporters. We are sincerely grateful to the many
entities that cooperated in the preparation of this directory, including all of the companies and associations, as well as the
advertisers appearing in the directory, and to the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) for funding the production
of this directory as an activity of the BELTRAIDE-IDB Technical Cooperation Project.

I wish to reiterate the Government of Belize’s commitment to the production of quality goods and services, and to thank
BELTRAIDE for providing another window showcasing this country’s products to the world.

Sincerely,

Hon. Ralph H. Fonseca


Minister of Home Affairs & Investment

CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY AND COMMON MARKET (CARICOM)

The Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM) was established by the Treaty of Chaguaramas, which was
signed by Barbados, Jamaica, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago, and came into effect on August 1st, 1973. CARICOM is
aimed at the eventual integration of its members and economies, and the creation of a common market – the CARICOM
Single Market Economy (CSME).

Under the CARICOM agreement, all imported products entering Belize from one of the CARICOM member countries
are exempted from import duties. In order to receive an exemption, importers must produce to the Comptroller of
Customs a CARICOM Certificate of Origin which validates the CARICOM origin.

CARICOM Members

Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Turks and Caicos Islands, the
Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Guyana, St. Kitts and Nevis, Suriname, Barbados, Dominica, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Trinidad
and Tobago

CARICOM Observers

Anguilla, the Cayman Islands, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela, Bermuda, Dominican Republic,
Netherlands Antilles

On May 1st, 1971, Belize (then, British Honduras) became a member of CARICOM. Within CARICOM, Belize is listed
as a Less Developed Country (LDC), and has been designated as one of the disadvantaged countries in the Community.
Belize can export most of its products to CARICOM duty-free. Products which do not meet the qualifying conditions
(i.e. Rules of Origin) must face the import duties as prescribed in the Common External Tariff (CET).

TARIFFS

What is a tariff?

A tariff is a tax placed on imported or exported goods, sometimes called a customs duty. A revenue tariff is set with
the intent of raising money for the government. A protective tariff, usually applied to imported goods, is intended to
artificially inflate prices of imports and “protect” domestic industries from foreign competition.

What is an ad valorem tariff?

An ad valorem tariff is a fixed percentage of the value of the good that is being imported. In some instances these
may be problematic as when the international price of a good falls, so does the tariff, and domestic industries become
more vulnerable to competition. Conversely, when the price of a good rises in the international market, so does the
tariff.

What is a specific tariff?

A specific tariff is a tariff of a specific amount of money that does not vary with the price of the good. These tariffs
may be harder to decide the amount at which to set them, and may need to be updated due to changes in the market
or inflation.

13
THE COMMON EXTERNAL TARIFF (CET)

Belize, as a member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), adopts the Common External Tariff (CET), which is
a single-tier tariff schedule for goods imported from non-CARICOM countries.

and helps us to create greater awareness and appreciation
for our own cultural and natural resources.

Belize is home to a wide array of natural attractions. White


sand islands surround the Western Hemisphere’s longest
barrier reef, jungle-covered foothills rising up to the Maya
Mountains, world-class diving and fishing, lush rainforests,
cascading waterfalls, ancient temples, and abundant wildlife
are just a few of the attractions that allows Belize to be truly
considered “Mother Nature’s best-kept secret”.

Belizeans are committed to eco-tourism, conserving natural


areas and cultural heritage, and are happy to share their
paradise with those who wish to help preserve it. Each year
more and more visitors come to Belize to enjoy its many
wonders. Friends and families are drawn to this magical
and beautiful land to dive, fish, hike, explore, learn, or just
to relax.

In 2004, total overnight tourist arrivals were 230,832, a


4.7% increase from 2003 figures (220,574).

The main market for Belize continues to be the United


States, and approximately 137,367 tourists were Americans.
This represents a 7.9% increase from 2003.

In 2004, there were 406 cruise ship calls into Belizean port.
This represented a 28.9% increase in cruise ship calls over
2003. Total cruise passengers for 2004 totaled 851,436,
which represents a 48.0% passenger increase from 2003.

Tourism has been identified as one of Belize’s priority


sectors for attracting investors, as additional investment
would result in the earning of additional foreign exchange
through the export of tourism services. Growth in the
industry would also result in spillover benefits in other
sectors/industries such as agriculture, handicraft making,
and services that support or complement tourism.

Each year the Belize Tourism Board releases its Travel


& Tourism Statistics Digest showing the performance
of the tourism industry. For more information on the
tourism industry in Belize, and a comprehensive listing of
accomodations, restaurants, charters, tours, etc. please visit
