By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Keynote speaker for the Belize Investment Summit, former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is already in Belize.
Harper arrived in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, on Monday for the Belize Investment Summit which will be held there on Wednesday, November 10, and Thursday, November 11.
Harper, 62, arrived in San Pedro where he was welcomed by Canadian nationals, special guests, and local authorities including San Pedro Mayor Gualberto ‘Wally’ Nuñez, according to the San Pedro Sun.
“Stephen Harper led Canada through the world’s most complex geopolitical, economic and security challenges as the country’s 22nd Prime Minister for nearly ten years,” said the Belize Investment Summit website.
“During his tenure in the world’s top forums such as the G-7, G-20, NATO, and the United Nations, Mr. Harper was known for a frank, assertive leadership style defined by principled diplomacy, disciplined economic policy, a strong stance on international peace and security, and passionate defence of freedom and human dignity.”
Harper is Chairman and CEO of Harper & Associates, a global strategic advisory firm. Recently Harper authored the book “Right Here Right Now: Politics and Leadership in the Age of Disruption”. He is also a public speaker on topics such as geo-politics, populism, and global business trends.
The Belize Investment Summit is a move by the Belize government to attract investments as Belize endeavours to accelerate “investment growth, aligned with the sustainable development goals; improving our fiscal position, reducing our debt burden, and improving economic prosperity”.
“I am convinced, as Prime Minister, that it is the opportune time to invest in Belize; whether foreign or local, to establish strategic partnerships and find investment opportunities,” said Prime Minister John Briceño. “Join us on November 10th and 11th and seize upon the many investment opportunities we have to offer in this jewel you can call home.”
The Summit will highlight “exceptional and untapped growth potential” in agriculture, tourism, blue economy, business process outsourcing, manufacturing, and renewable energy.
