Caribbean Association of Customs Brokers meets in Belize

Posted: Monday, October 10, 2022. 3:53 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: A customs broker is a professional who provides expert services by arranging the customs clearance process for you during a shipment. The customs broker ensures that a shipment meets all standards and regulations for the import or export of goods.

Belize’s national association of customs brokers hosted their Caribbean counterparts last week under the theme “the 21st Century Customs Broker.”

President of the Caribbean Association of Customs Brokers, Delroy Fairweather, addressed his fellows at the start of the conference saying that the trade industry has had to find ways to persist, even in the face of a pandemic and natural disasters.

CARICOM nations continue to grapple with the effects that the pandemic had on regional trade as well as the effects of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on global supply chains. It could be seen, for example, in the fact that most participants had to fly to Belize by way of the United States, adding cost and inconvenience. Fairweather says regional heads of government should be discussing the possibility of connecting the region better by air.

The Caribbean Association of Customs Brokers (CACUB) convened last week at the Belize Biltmore Plaza over a two-day period and had the participation of customs brokers from a number of CARICOM member states, including Belize, Antigua & Barbuda, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados, Haiti, Jamaica, and more.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade, and Immigration, Eamon Courtenay, was also a speaker at the event. He highlighted the importance of having such a conference.

“This is a gathering, as has been said, of people who are essential to international trade, especially the movement of goods across borders. Customs brokers across the world are at the forefront of ensuring that businesses and people get whatever inputs and consumables they desire and require,” said Courtenay.
