By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Prime Minister John Briceño said today that the statistics for both overnight tourist arrivals and cruise tourism provide a clear indication that Belize’s tourism is moving fast on its path to recovery.

“Quarterly figures for overnight tourist arrivals to Belize totaled over 97,000. The largest since the pandemic shutdown,” said the Prime Minister in a social media post.

“There were a total of 48 cruise ship calls to Belize. Over 93,000 cruise passengers arrived in March.”

Briceño said the Government introduced a fuel subsidy to help tour operators face the global oil sector’s rising costs and introduced two rounds of grant funding assistance to the tourism sector for COVID-19 recovery. He said the first was implemented in early 2021 and the second is ongoing with proposals being received from Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSME) tourism operations.

He said his administration remains committed to tourism which he called “a robust contributor to employment and foreign exchange earnings”.
