By Aaron Humes: Following Monday’s House Committee Meeting where stakeholders presented their concerns regarding the Trade Licensing Bill 2022, Cabinet has agreed to defer any fee for local entertainers while consultations continue with stakeholders in the entertainment industry.

In the weekly Cabinet brief issued today, the Executive notes that “In addition, Cabinet will consult to develop incentives for the creative sector.”

The deferral is in direct response to “the fragile state of the entertainment industry caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” as enumerated by participants at the meeting.

The Bill contemplated up to $200 per municipality for foreign and Belizean performers per appearance.

All other recommendations presented at Monday’s House Committee Meeting will be duly considered before the revised bill is presented to the House of Representatives for consideration, Cabinet said.
