Sunday, June 6th, 2010

Tri-County International Chamber of Commerce (TCICC) has officially declared Belize a trading country for Black Business Enterprises in the United States and the Diaspora.

TCICC’s mission is facilitating the development and preparedness of micro and small business enterprises seeking export and import opportunities in new global markets. Its TCICC President and CEO, Leondria Thompson, said: “Attending a five day business trade mission in Belize with TCBCC in 2007, before becoming Vice President this year, my husband and I cherished the fact that our business ideas were embraced, the opportunities were plentiful, and the many obstacles we’ve faced here in the U.S. virtually were non-existent. We couldn’t have been more pleased to become business owners in Belize”.

To promote international trade, an International Bilateral Trade Mission delegation will be led by TCICC to Belize. The delegation will visit Belize on June 21-June 25, 2010. The mission will encourage entrepreneurs to do business internationally and trade with Belize.

The 5-day and 4-night mission will cover 3 districts of Belize and meet with business counterparts, Government officials, Government Agencies, and US Embassy officials for trade and commerce support.
