“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 Belize

Belize’s economy remains rooted in the performance of the services sector and the resilience of the agro-productive sector, which contribute significantly to the country’s foreign exchange earnings. The focus remains on developing a strategic approach to trade policy and attainment of the Global Sustainable Development Goals, which have resulted in a National Trade Policy Framework (NTPF) and a Growth and Sustainable Development Strategy (GSDS). The Cabinet of Belize has also recently endorsed in principle the development of the National Investment Policy and Strategy (NIPS).
