By BBN Staff: Today, the Belize Tourism Industry Association (BTIA) applauded the Government of Belize for its decision to relax the requirements for tourists entering into Belize through the Philip Goldson International Airport.
In a letter to its members, the BTIA noted that the Prime Minister announced that a number of restrictions affecting returning Belizeans and tourists would be eliminated or modified, during his press conference last Friday.
“The BTIA applauds the efforts of the NOC and hopes that the pandemic-induced regulations remain under constant review with an eye to promoting a positive experience for our foreign guests and a return to full employment for those enterprises that host them,” the BTIA said. “We believe that the nation’s health and economic recovery are not mutually exclusive and that by the public and private sectors working together, the Belizean economy can be restored, reinvigorated, and made more resilient.”
The Association also said that it fully supports the Prime Minister’s reasoning that common sense must prevail in the reopening of the tourism industry and that steps must be taken to better enhance the health of everyone in Belize, either living or visiting and that the approach will include a major enforcement campaign for prevention protocols such as mask-wearing and social distancing.
