By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On April 27, 2023, the Belize Broadcasting Authority, under the Office of the Prime Minister held a consultation with relevant stakeholders to discuss the modernization of the broadcasting framework, which will include amendments to the Broadcasting and Television Act (Cap 227) and Regulations.
The proposed modernization of the broadcasting industry is intended to assist Belize with meeting its obligations relating to broadcasting under treaties and agreements with international partners.
It is also expected to boost Belize’s reputation internationally in intellectual property compliance and media regulation by having a modern broadcasting regime, which will bring trade and economic advantages and ensure that all mediums of broadcasting in Belize are encompassed in the regulatory structure, taking into consideration new technologies, new media and the convergence between broadcasting and telecommunications.
“The proposal to review existing media and broadcasting-related legislation to make necessary amendments or additions to the regulatory structure is intended to create the facilitative environment needed to achieve these goals,” the Government of Belize noted.
Another stakeholder consultation meeting will be held on May 9, 2023, at the Biltmore Plaza at 1:30 pm.
