Belize Prints Investment Guide
Printed in four colours by Angelus Press and enhanced by colour photos by
Tony Rath, the Ministry of Economic Development has released a very
attractive booklet with facts and figures about Belize. Oriented towards
attracting investors, the publication has a short historical review of
Belize, economic indicators over the past few years, a section on government
policy regarding investment, foreign exchange regulations, and some general
chapters on the advantages of investing in Belize. It is an ABC primer
written expressly for that person or company that is in the initial stages
of deciding whether a Belize investment is viable.
Of course, some of the figures cited seem a little optimistic (such as
an 80% literacy rate) but then the business of this book is to be positive.
Congratulations on a good effort, created and published right here in
Belize. The lush photographs by Tony Rath capture the flavour of the country
and are a valuable addition to the publication.
As the Prime Minister says in his remarks, "We hope that this booklet
will help to provide some of the answers to your questions and at the same
time sensitize you to the uniquely Belizean opportunities and hospitality
that await the investor."
There is one item that has been pointed out to us by a few people. In
the section called "Belize at a glance" a listing of all the towns is
printed. San Pedro is not included, although Monkey River is listed. Perhaps
this might be corrected in the second edition.
