By Aaron Humes: Belize was represented at the Eighth International Conference and Exhibition (AICE) presented by the World Free Zones Organization (World FZO) in association with its conference host, the Jamaica Special Economic Zone Authority (JSEZA), from 13-17 June in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Representing Belize at the forum, BELTRAIDE Executive Director Dr. Leroy Almendarez said, “Resilience is key to long-term sustainability and Belize is on track to improve its resilience through the implementation policies that trade and limit barriers to trade caused by high tariffs and complex customs regulations”.

The conference, which was held under the theme: “Zones, your partner for resilience, sustainability and prosperity”, aims to develop a strategy to strengthen the resilience of our investment brand: the Caribbean, and to foster deeper conversations about the future of the free zones industry. The conference features global business leaders, multilateral organizations and policy makers, who share best practices and raise awareness through panel discussions on the roles and contributions of free zones to economic growth and stability .

In addition to discussions on developing strategies for greater integration into the WFZO, representatives discussed the presentation of viable projects to showcase in Montego Bay and the upcoming Saudi Arabia-Caribbean Forum, to be held in the Dominican Republic, in July. The conference also featured a trade show with over 100 trade booths and ended with B2B meetings to promote supply chain connections.
