Prime Minister’s Address the Belize Chamber of Commerce & Industry

April 27, 2017 Thank you for inviting me to share my sense of the business climate, the macro economy, and a few of my Administration’s actions and plans for sustaining and broadening Belize’s economic expansion. To some extent, a degree often underestimated, both government and the private sector grapple with conditions that are uncontrollable, or at least unpredictable. For example, at the start of our tenure nine years ago, the Great Recession and the unusual oil price spike that wobbled the global economy, especially small economies in the American orbit such as Belize, was surely not something we had bargained […]


National Aquaculture Sector Overview

Characteristics, structure and resources of the sector Summary Aquaculture in Belize formally began in 1982 with the development of ten acres (4 ha) of experimental ponds by a private company, in the southern part of the Country. Since that time, the industry has developed rapidly and has become firmly established as a significant contributor to the Belizean economy in terms of foreign exchange earnings, income generation, employment, nutrition, and food security.

Payments for No Work

We got these pictures showing large sums of money being paid by GOB (Government of Belize) for services not rendered by Imer Hernandez nephew of the Deputy PM of Belize Gaspar Vega. This is really normal practice with what is called the “Friends and Family Circle” with Belizean politics. There are numerous scandals rocking the nation lately ranging from Illegal Rosewood logging and dealings by the Deputy PMs brother, Land Grabs, the Noh Mul demolishing which still has not been dealt with.


Ministry of Natural Resources undermining Dangriga Town Council

By News5 Belize There’s another land controversy brewing and the Dangriga Town Council says it is a deliberate attempt by the Ministry of Natural Resources to undermine and frustrate the Council and the people of Dangriga. In a nutshell, what we found out today is that parcel nine-nine-one near the main bridge in downtown Dangriga was sold to Anthony Adderly by government sometime around 2008. According to the Town Council, it was then decided that the land should be reserved for public use and the land was re-acquired from Adderly for four thousand dollars, the purchase price he had paid […]


Treaty Energy's Oil Claim Bogus

Jan 31, 2012 But before we get to that – and the response from the leader of the opposition, Francis Fonseca we take a break from politics, to talk about oil. Last night we headlined, but never ran a story about Treaty Energy finding Oil in Southern Belize. It was an omission and one for which we apologize, but we held off on the story because we got some late information which suggested the press release from Treaty Energy was bogus. Rather than mislead our viewers, we decided to hold off on the story – until more credible information was […]
