BELTRAIDE - Belize Importers & Exporters Directory Document Transcript

  • 1. FOREWORD The Government of Belize continues to place special emphasis on establishing this country as a reputable and reliable supplier of quality goods and services. Notwithstanding its relatively small size, Belize’s export sector capacity and capability continues to grow and remain competitive in particular niche markets such as papayas and hot-pepper. The export sector has adopted competitiveness and quality as selling points as it seeks to improve even further an already impressive record. The Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE) was mandated to be the implementing arm of government policy in the area of Export Promotion and Investment. BELTRAIDE has been successful in producing its first edition of an Importers and Exporters Directory worthy of the highest commendation. The directory complements other initiatives that BELTRAIDE has undertaken such as the Exporter’s Manual and The Priority Sectors for Investment and Export Promotion. BELTRAIDE, as part of its active support for trade globalization, industrial activities and foreign investment, sincerely hopes that this directory will stimulate further business with Belize. The Government of Belize, in order to facilitate the best enabling environment and infrastructure, is engaged in a series of international trade negotiations. We are committed in the negotiation process for the Free Trade Areas of the Americas. The globalized trade arena has posed its share of challenges to the Belize economy, but our exporters have been able to maintain their presence in traditional markets such as CARICOM, the United States of America and Europe, while making important inroads into non-traditional markets such as Japan. We take this opportunity to express on behalf of the Ministry of Home Affairs and Investment and BELTRAIDE to thank all those involved in producing this Directory of Importers and Exporters. We are sincerely grateful to the many entities that cooperated in the preparation of this directory, including all of the companies and associations, as well as the advertisers appearing in the directory, and to the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) for funding the production of this directory as an activity of the BELTRAIDE-IDB Technical Cooperation Project. I wish to reiterate the Government of Belize’s commitment to the production of quality goods and services, and to thank BELTRAIDE for providing another window showcasing this country’s products to the world. Sincerely, Hon. Ralph H. Fonseca Minister of Home Affairs & Investment 1

  • 13. CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY AND COMMON MARKET (CARICOM) The Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM) was established by the Treaty of Chaguaramas, which was signed by Barbados, Jamaica, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago, and came into effect on August 1st, 1973. CARICOM is aimed at the eventual integration of its members and economies, and the creation of a common market – the CARICOM Single Market Economy (CSME). Under the CARICOM agreement, all imported products entering Belize from one of the CARICOM member countries are exempted from import duties. In order to receive an exemption, importers must produce to the Comptroller of Customs a CARICOM Certificate of Origin which validates the CARICOM origin. CARICOM Members Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Turks and Caicos Islands, the Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Guyana, St. Kitts and Nevis, Suriname, Barbados, Dominica, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago CARICOM Observers Anguilla, the Cayman Islands, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela, Bermuda, Dominican Republic, Netherlands Antilles On May 1st, 1971, Belize (then, British Honduras) became a member of CARICOM. Within CARICOM, Belize is listed as a Less Developed Country (LDC), and has been designated as one of the disadvantaged countries in the Community. Belize can export most of its products to CARICOM duty-free. Products which do not meet the qualifying conditions (i.e. Rules of Origin) must face the import duties as prescribed in the Common External Tariff (CET). TARIFFS What is a tariff? A tariff is a tax placed on imported or exported goods, sometimes called a customs duty. A revenue tariff is set with the intent of raising money for the government. A protective tariff, usually applied to imported goods, is intended to artificially inflate prices of imports and “protect” domestic industries from foreign competition. What is an ad valorem tariff? An ad valorem tariff is a fixed percentage of the value of the good that is being imported. In some instances these may be problematic as when the international price of a good falls, so does the tariff, and domestic industries become more vulnerable to competition. Conversely, when the price of a good rises in the international market, so does the tariff. What is a specific tariff? A specific tariff is a tariff of a specific amount of money that does not vary with the price of the good. These tariffs may be harder to decide the amount at which to set them, and may need to be updated due to changes in the market or inflation. 13
  • 14. THE COMMON EXTERNAL TARIFF (CET) Belize, as a member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), adopts the Common External Tariff (CET), which is a single-tier tariff schedule for goods imported from non-CARICOM countries.

Belize is home to a wide array of natural attractions. White sand islands surround the Western Hemisphere’s longest barrier reef, jungle-covered foothills rising up to the Maya Mountains, world-class diving and fishing, lush rainforests, cascading waterfalls, ancient temples, and abundant wildlife are just a few of the attractions that allows Belize to be truly considered “Mother Nature’s best-kept secret”. Belizeans are committed to eco-tourism, conserving natural areas and cultural heritage, and are happy to share their paradise with those who wish to help preserve it. Each year more and more visitors come to Belize to enjoy its many wonders. Friends and families are drawn to this magical and beautiful land to dive, fish, hike, explore, learn, or just to relax. In 2004, total overnight tourist arrivals were 230,832, a 4.7% increase from 2003 figures (220,574). The main market for Belize continues to be the United States, and approximately 137,367 tourists were Americans. This represents a 7.9% increase from 2003. In 2004, there were 406 cruise ship calls into Belizean port. This represented a 28.9% increase in cruise ship calls over 2003. Total cruise passengers for 2004 totaled 851,436, which represents a 48.0% passenger increase from 2003. Tourism has been identified as one of Belize’s priority sectors for attracting investors, as additional investment would result in the earning of additional foreign exchange through the export of tourism services. Growth in the industry would also result in spillover benefits in other sectors/industries such as agriculture, handicraft making, and services that support or complement tourism. Each year the Belize Tourism Board releases its Travel & Tourism Statistics Digest showing the performance of the tourism industry.
