Belize joined WTO (World Trade Organization) in 1995.

Free Trade Zones

The 1990 Export Processing Zone (EPZ) Act of Belize empowers firms to operate within special or general export processing zones in the country. Belize's first EPZ, consisting of 28.5 acres and located 8 miles from the Mexican border in the northernmost district of Corozal, was officially opened in 1992.

The Commercial Free Zone (CFZ) Act of 1995 provides for the creation and operation of CFZs within Belize to foster commercial trade and investment with other Latin American countries. One of the features of the CFZ Act is that it establishes an autonomous body - the Commercial Free Zone Management Authority (CFZMA) with full supervision authority of the CFZs in the country. However, the autonomy of the CFZMA board has been eroded as a result of amendments to the Free Zone Act, specifically the amendment that changed the composition of the board, from one previously controlled by zone investors to one controlled now by representatives, appointed by government. The other two main amendments seek to impose a social fee of 1.5 % on all imports and 10 % on petroleum goods in the zone and change the foreign exchange standards. Business corporations generally encouraged under the CFZ plan include commercial offices, insurance services, warehouses, manufacturing and financial services.

When thinking of using FCL shipping option (20’ and 40’ containers), you should keep in mind the following advantages:
1) The container volume is all at your disposal;
2) You don’t have to have to wait for your order being consolidated with other orders shipped to the same destination;
3) Mind that your goods will stay in the container from the time of loading in the origin port to the time of unloading at the destination.
