Bordered by Mexico in the North, Guatemala in the West, and the Caribbean Sea in the East, Belize is a unique, vibrant country in Central America whose British colonial history strongly links it to the Caribbean. It consists of hard-working, diverse, friendly, bilingual (with English being the official language), and well educated workforce that bolsters an economy focused on growth. The Government of Belize’s commitment to the country’s niche oriented development model has supported the expansion of business in the Tourism, Agribusiness and Agro-processing, Light Manufacturing, Aquaculture, Energy and Offshore Outsourcing sectors amongst others. Both Belize’s goods and services sectors continue to grow and diversify and with progressive development policies as this trend is expected to continue into the future.
