By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Northern Labour and Employment Officers are participating in the National MSME Roadshow in the Corozal District, on Thursday and Friday, said the Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour, and Local Government.
“This critical initiative allows our Labour Representatives to provide on-site services to MSMEs in the north, such as the online portal for the Temporary Employment Permit Service System, the Employment Services System, information on the Labour Act, other labour education, and job readiness information from the Public Employment Service Unit.”
The MSME Roadshow is a drive by the Office of the Prime Minister to promote the continued development of the Medium, Small, and Micro Enterprises (MSMEs) countrywide.
“MSMEs are economic engines fueling diversification, job creation and growth,” said Prime Minister John Briceño at the launching of the MSME Roadshow and the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) Strategy and Roadmap for Belize at the Best Western Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel in Belize City on Friday, August 2.
He said the overall goal of a sustained growth and prosperity for all Belizeans requires an inclusive ecosystem strategy built on partnerships.
“This is why we are having this road show, to include and involve as many partners as possible from all across Belize,” said the Prime Minister.
The first-of-its-kind, National MSME Roadshow was launched by the Economic Development Council (EDC), through its technical secretariat, the Public-Private Desk in the Office of the Prime Minister together with BELTRAIDE and the Investment Policy and Compliance Unit, with the support of strategic partners, including UNDP and the Mayors Association of Belize.
The roadshow seeks to provide developmental support services to the MSME sector while raising public awareness of Belizean goods and services. Starting in Corozal and Orange Walk in August, it will go to Belize City, Punta Gorda, Caye Caulker, and Belmopan in September, San Ignacio/Santa Elena, Dangriga, Placencia, and San Pedro in October, and will close in November in Belize City.
“We want Belizeans buying locally produced goods and services,” said the PM.
