According to the Prime Minister, after a year and six months of “intense” negotiations, an agreement has been reached on a reduction of the debt of “between $267 and $327 million,” cutting the debt to GDP ratio by six to seven points while keeping to the terms of the original agreement, including a two percent interest rate, a two-year principal moratorium and a 25-year repayment period.

Venezuela is Belize’s principal bilateral creditor, with debts of between $449 to $547 million pending.
