Healy Consultants: Belize completes third trade policy review

By: Healy Consultants
SINGAPORE - April 28, 2017 - PRLog -- Belize has recently completed its third trade policy review by the World Trade Organization, with the focus being on trade performance with the US. Trade totalled 323 million dollars in 2016. Belize has the third highest per capita income in Central America.

Dylan Vernon - Belize's Resident Ambassador in Brussels made a presentation on Belize to the World Trade Organization. He said, "Overall the experience has been an excellent one for Belize in terms of allowing us to take stock of our trade policy over the past period and also plan for the next period. We feel that we have done well in terms of our limitations as a smaller economy in terms of having now a national trade policy framework underway and very good plans for having us improve how we abide by our WTO obligations; so we feel confident going forward and have benefited greatly from this experience."

Trade is extremely important to Belize's economy, with the value of exports and imports contributing to 126% of the country's GDP. Despite being one of the smallest markets in Central America, Belize is an open economy attracting more FDIs annually.

As required by the World Trade Organization, trade policy reviews are mandatory for all member countries. Trade and related policies were examined and evaluated while significant developments that could have an impact on the global trading system are monitored.

This provided an opportunity for the country to prove its acceptance and commitment to the rules of trade that this agreement enforces, and Belize has proven to be right on track.
