By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, Belize’s Ambassador to Taiwan Dr. Candice Pitts joined other Ambassadors, Representatives from Importers and Exporters Association of Taipei (IEAT), and Representatives from the American Association of State Government Office at the Opening Ceremony of the 2024 American and Central American Agricultural and Food Products Showcase.

In her remarks, Ambassador Pitts extended gratitude to IEAT for requesting the participation of Belize and for changing the name to American and Central American Agricultural and Food Products Showcase to be inclusive of Taiwan’s Central American allies.

Ambassador Pitts stated that in January of 2022, Belize and Taiwan effectuated the Economic Cooperation Agreement that reduces tariffs on exportable goods between both countries, and an agricultural and food showcase such as this creates an excellent opportunity for Taiwanese importers and consumers to become more familiar with the premium products Belize has to export, as well as for the Belizean exporters to become better familiar with the Taiwanese markets.

There are more than 70 Taiwanese companies registered to attend this exhibition, and Belize has on display products, such as cacao beans and cacao powder, chocolate products, rums, wines, pepper sauces, jams, juice concentrates, honeys, teas, coffee beans, organic turmeric pastes, information on lobsters and shrimps, and more. Besides Taipei, these products will also be in display in Taichung, Tainan, and Kaohsiung.

Ambassador Pitts thanked IEAT, the American Association of State Government Office, and CATO for inviting Belize to participate in this exhibition, and encouraged the Taiwan business community to stop by and to learn more about Belize’s high-quality products.
