By BBN Staff: Minister of State for Investment, Tracy Panton, and an accompanying delegation visited the Republic of China (Taiwan) this week as one of several activities commemorating the 30th anniversary of Belize and Taiwan’s diplomatic relationship.
Panton’s delegation included Duane Belisle, Chief Executive Officer for Investment, Trade, and Commerce; Leroy Almendarez, Executive Director of BELTRAIDE, and Andy Sutherland, Director General of Foreign Trade. Belize’s Ambassador to Taiwan, Diane Haylock, met up with the delegation during the visit.
As a part of their trip, which began on August 12 and will end on August 16, the delegation visited the I-Mei Foods factory in Nankan (南崁), Taoyuan City, to see how a high-quality food factory is run. During the tour, they visited the factory’s gift shop, cultural exhibition hall, hamburger bun and English muffin mass production lines, and food safety laboratories.
Panton noted that the goals of their trip are negotiating a trade agreement with Taiwan and learning from the island’s experience in food processing. She added that the I-Mei factory uses many raw materials that can be found in Belize, and hoped to sell more of them to Taiwan in the future.
Taiwan’s major imports from Belize include fishery products such as lobsters and sea cucumbers, and a variety of timbers, while Belize mostly buys electronic devices and industrial parts from Taiwan.
