By BBN Staff: Officials of neighboring Chetumal, Quintana Roo are concerned about the continuous closure of Belize’s border, Riviera Maya News reports.
The National Chamber of Commerce and Tourism of Chetumal told the local media that the economy is experiencing a crisis and on the verge of collapse since more than 50% of visitors are from Belize.
If Belize’s border remains closed for the remainder of 2020, it will be challenging for businesses already facing the economic crisis due to COVID-19.
Before COVID-19, about 20,000 Belizeans crossed into Chetumal monthly, generating millions in revenues.
Due to COVID-19, the border has been closed for months and there is no set date for re-opening.
