“Trade Policy Reviews" analyse the trade policies and practices of each member of the WTO. The reviews consist of three parts: an independent report by the WTO Secretariat, a report by the government, and the concluding remarks by the Chair of the WTO’s Trade Policy Review Body. The opening section - "key trade facts" - provides a visual overview of the WTO member's major exports/imports, main export destinations, origins for its imports and other key data. This edition looks into the trade practices of Belize.



Report by the WTO Secretariat

Belize is a small economy with the lowest population density in Central America (377,968 people in 2016 in a total land area of 22,966 km2). It is an upper-middleincome country with GDP per capita at US$4,757 in 2015. Given its limited domestic market, trade is particularly important for the economy (imports and exports combined amounted to 129% of GDP in 2015).
