The Latin America Unit’s primary responsibility is to increase market access for Belizean exports into the Latin American market and thus stimulate more dynamic trade relations between Belize and the Latin American group of countries, inclusive of those in the Caribbean region.

Core functions of the Latin America Unit include:

  • Coordinate the implementation and monitoring of the Belize-Guatemala Partial Scope Agreement (PSA);
  • Conduct preparatory research and analysis required for bi-lateral trade negotiations with Latin American Countries;
  • Facilitate Belize’s position as a regional hub between the Caribbean and Central America; and
  • Assess and explore trade opportunities available for Belize through economic integration with Central America.
