However, there is a concern of rising prices for imports – both of actual cost and shipping, which he said has risen “exponentially” and “unexplainably.”
Belize regularly imports 1 to 2 billion Belize dollars in goods annually while exporting far less. There has been an effort to limit imports of goods produced locally, for example, vegetables, dairy, and other foods.
