By BBN Staff: EXPORTBelize, a technical unit of the Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE), is representing the country at the 13th China, Latin America and Caribbean Business Summit (ChinaLAC) which is being held in Panama City from December 9-11, 2019.
Some 1,000 companies are said to have participated in the three-day summit, which wraps up today: approximately 600 from Latin America and 400 from China. The event features commercial and investment exhibitions, round table meetings, meetings for high-level authorities, and dedicated times for agreement signings.
Export Business Advisor, Nicole Zetina, is at the summit making presentations showcasing Belizean products and answering questions about Belize to companies that wish to know more about what Belize has to offer.
The ChinaLAC summit serves as an opportunity to develop trade between China and the LAC region, as well as generate new business opportunities for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (#MSMEs) in the production and services sectors through booth displays and match-making meetings.
During the opening ceremony, Panama’s Minister of Commerce and Industries Ramon Martinez said, “In just a decade, trade volume between China and Latin America has grown more than 20-fold, through hundreds of signed agreements and scores of projects underway in key areas for the region’s development, such as infrastructure, energy, and transport.”
This year’s ChinaLAC is organized by the Chinese Council for the Promotion of International Trade, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry Panama, the Tourism Authority of Panama, the Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture of Panama.
