By BBN Staff: EXPORT Belize, a unit of BELTRAIDE, along with the Directorate General for Foreign Trade (DGFT) of the Ministry of Investment, Trade, and Commerce will join together with private sector enterprises to facilitate an Export to CARICOM Roundtable.
The event will be held on Wednesday, May 2, from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.
It will bring together private sector enterprises that have experience in exporting to CARICOM with potential exporters, who have serious interest in entering the CARICOM markets as well.
The objective of the session is to have companies, who have an interest in exporting to markets in CARICOM receive a first-hand account of the documentations and logistics required to start the exportation process.
Participants will engage in active discussion about the challenges, market access requirements, trade opportunities, distribution channels, shipping logistics and more.
With Belize being signatory to CARICOM, there are an increasing amount of trade opportunities that exist for Belizean producers, who want to have their goods and services access CARICOM markets.
Currently, Belize is exporting animal feed, red kidney beans, orange juice, ice cream, and many others, but there are more opportunities for us to provide the CARICOM region with much more quality products and services.
The session commences BELTRAIDE’s National Competitiveness Month and is a part of DGFT’s CARICOM Week of activities and will be held at the NEMO training room in Belmopan on Wednesday from 9:00am-12noon.
