By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Economic Development, Petroleum, Investment, Trade and Commerce, through the Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE) in collaboration with ConnectAmericas, the International Development Bank (IDB) and the Caribbean Association of Investment Promotion Agencies, (CAIPA), will officially launch the Belize Investment Portfolio Campaign on Friday, 25th November at the Radisson Fort George Hotel.
The countrywide campaign is expected to foster the development of a national portfolio to fast-track investment generation efforts, both local and foreign, through targeted matchmaking of pre-packaged investment concepts and projects.
Through the advancement of the campaign, BELTRAIDE, through its technical unit, BelizeINVEST, mandated to serve as Belize’s National Investment Promotion Agency (IPA), expects to further substantiate selected investment concepts submitted by key public sector Government Ministries and stakeholders into actionable business cases aligned with national development priorities.
The campaign also strives to support qualified private sector investment projects seeking financing and / or investment partners by promoting and matchmaking these “shovel ready” business opportunities through various platforms regionally, inclusive of ConnectAmericas and CAIPA, key supporters and collaborators of this initiative in Belize.
Tracy Taegar-Panton, Minister of State at the Ministry of Economic Development, Petroleum, Investment, Trade and Commerce and Chair of the Cabinet Sub-committee on Investments (CSCI) will deliver the keynote address at the official launching of the campaign.
The official launch of the Belize Investment Portfolio Campaign will be held on Friday at the Cahal Pech Room, Radisson Fort George Hotel and Marina at 9:00 a.m
