OAS continues Trade Capacity Building in Belize

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

Currently, an Organization of American State (OAS) Trade team led by its Director of Trade and Tourism Pamela Coke Hamilton is visiting Belize.

As part of its trade capacity building agenda, the OAS among other things engaged in a round-table discussion with the public and private sector. The discussion is focused on establishing an implementation mechanism for trade agreements, which is related to the recently signed European Partnership Agreement (EPA).

The AOS trade team has been meeting with different persons and companies in Belize, including meetings with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Hon. Wilfred Elrington, members from Beltraide, BELIPO, Belize Chamber of Commerce, and others.

The project is aimed at identifying products with high potential for increased export earnings by employing Intellectual Property tools and strategies.
