CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY AND COMMON MARKET (CARICOM)

The Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM) was established by the Treaty of Chaguaramas, which was signed by Barbados, Jamaica, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago, and came into effect on August 1st, 1973. CARICOM is aimed at the eventual integration of its members and economies, and the creation of a common market the CARICOM Single Market Economy (CSME). Under the CARICOM agreement, all imported products entering Belize from one of the CARICOM member countries are exempted from import duties. In order to receive an exemption, importers must produce to the Comptroller of Customs a CARICOM Certicate of Origin which validates the CARICOM origin. CARICOM Members Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Turks and Caicos Islands, the Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Guyana, St. Kitts and Nevis, Suriname, Barbados, Dominica, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago CARICOM Observers Anguilla, the Cayman Islands, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela, Bermuda, Dominican Republic, Netherlands Antilles On May 1st, 1971, Belize (then, British Honduras) became a member of CARICOM. Within CARICOM, Belize is listed as a Less Developed Country (LDC), and has been designated as one of the disadvantaged countries in the Community. Belize can export most of its products to CARICOM duty-free. Products which do not meet the qualifying conditions (i.e. Rules of Origin) must face the import duties as prescribed in the Common External Tariff (CET).

TARIFFS
What is a tariff? A tariff is a tax placed on imported or exported goods, sometimes called a customs duty. A revenue tariff is set with the intent of raising money for the government. A protective tariff, usually applied to imported goods, is intended to articially inate prices of imports and protect domestic industries from foreign competition. What is an ad valorem tariff? An ad valorem tariff is a xed percentage of the value of the good that is being imported. In some instances these may be problematic as when the international price of a good falls, so does the tariff, and domestic industries become more vulnerable to competition. Conversely, when the price of a good rises in the international market, so does the tariff. What is a specic tariff? A specic tariff is a tariff of a specic amount of money that does not vary with the price of the good. These tariffs may be harder to decide the amount at which to set them, and may need to be updated due to changes in the market or ination.

PRIORITY SECTOR PROFILES Traditional Agriculture


Belizes economic output has traditionally been primarily based on agriculture. However, within the past ve years there has been a prominent shift towards the services sector with emphasis on tourism and nance. Belizes top three agricultural exports are citrus, sugar, and bananas. Agriculture currently provides about 71% of the countrys total foreign exchange earnings, and employs approximately 29% of the total labour force. Sugar accounts for about 60% of Belizes agricultural exports, and the principal crop is sugar cane which is used for sugar production and a feed stock for ethanol production. Sugar cane is grown primarily in Northern Belize. About 50% of Belizes sugar exports are sent to the EU under the EU Sugar Protocol and the Special Preferential Quota. Sugar exports to the US enter duty-free under the Caribbean Basin Initiative (CBI). Growth in citrus exports over the past ten years has averaged 24% per annum, making it the fastest growing agricultural industry. Citrus production is concentrated in the Stann Creek and Cayo Districts. Citrus harvesting and processing takes place during the months of October to July, and the main crop varieties are Valencia and Temple. Over 95% of the fresh fruit citrus is processed into concentrates and not-from-concentrates (NFCs), with the balance sent for export mainly to the U.K. The U.S, Europe, Japan, and CARICOM are the main importers of Belizean citrus products, and Belize continues to depend heavily on preferential duty-free treatment into these markets. Banana production is concentrated in Southern Belize. Privatization of banana estates began in 1985, and prior to this the industry was publicly owned. The species grown in Belize are of the Cavendish type, which is one of the most commonly grown varieties. All of Belizes banana exports are sent to the U.K. through the Banana Growers Association (BGA).

Agro-Processing
Agro-processing was identied as an area of high priority as Belize has an abundance of raw materials available to support the industry. With the advent of the loss of preferential access into the U.K, Belize will have to take pro-active measures to protect its agricultural industry. With this in mind, there has been a push towards value-added traditional crops, as well as the promotion of non-traditional crops such as papayas, hot peppers, soybean, and organically grown vegetables. An opportunity has also been identied to brand, differentiate, and niche market some of these products in order to de-emphasize price as the leading determinant of exports. The shift towards the promotion of value-added and nontraditional agricultural crops has led to an increase in light manufacturing and agro-processing. Sugar, citrus, banana, and rice-based value-added products such as banana our, banana chips, banana gs, crystallized citrus, orange and grapefruit segment, and dried fruits, as well as hot peppers in the area of non-traditional crops have been identied as areas that should be targeted for export and additional investment. Diversifying into agro-processing represents a viable strategy that would make the agricultural industry in Belize more sustainable, in light of the phasing out of preferential access to markets. In addition, value-added products typically command higher prices, and provide greater opportunities for branding Belizean products and niche marketing. This would thereby help to eliminate some of the cost disadvantages that Belize faces when competing with countries that have larger scale production and cheaper labour.

Offshore Financial Services


In an effort to increase economic diversication, Belize is a tax haven with investor friendly advantages for nonresidents. The Offshore Financial Services Industry has been identied as an area of opportunity for Belize given the size of the industry worldwide and in the Caribbean, as well as the fact that Belize has well developed legislation for Offshore Financial Services, a reasonably well-developed domestic nancial industry, and its proximity to the large USA, Mexican, and Canadian markets. Belize also boasts that it is the only English-speaking country in Central America, has a literate workforce, low operating costs, a stable economy, exible scal incentives, and has had a xed exchange rate for 25 years. Today, there are more than 35,000 active International Business Companies (IBC) on the register, and in addition there are other corporate vehicles available in the jurisdiction such as limited liability companies, mutual funds, protected cell companies, offshore trusts, international insurance, and offshore banking. Belize has also established programs such as Export Processing Zones (EPZ) and Commercial Free Zones (CFZ) to encourage investment. Despite the September 11th attacks, Belize is the only country in Central America that has experienced steady and continuous growth in the International Financial Services Industry. Belize has put in place a variety of measures to combat money laundering and fraud. The International Financial Services Commission (IFSC) is responsible for maintaining and enhancing the reputation of Belize as a viable offshore nancial center. The Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) was also recently established in a further effort to combat money laundering and the nancing of terrorism. The Unit is also responsible for investigating and prosecuting money laundering and other financial crimes such as internet fraud.

Furniture Manufacturing
Belize has an abundance of forestry resources, and the forestry industry has a long history in Belize. As a British colony, logwood was the rst product ever exported from Belize in the 1600s. By the end of the 1700s, exports turned to mahogany, and until 1959 when sugar and citrus became the main exports, the Belizean economy was dependent on the mahogany trade. The main location of the largest furniture manufacturers in Belize is in the Cayo District, namely San Ignacio and Belmopan. Proximity to lumber yards is the predominant reason for this location. Typical secondary processed wood products in Belize include carved doors of Mayan and Colonial type, clam chairs, Caribbean patio sets, hammock chairs, cutting boards of tropical mixed hardwoods, carved coffee tables, ofce furniture, and bedroom furniture. Approximately 700 species of trees are native to Belize, making tropical timber a valuable resource. This natural resource serves as Belizes potential comparative advantage, shielding it from the import prices of the international lumber market, and as such, sustainability is vital. A positive indicator of future trends in forestry, however, is the low population density of Belize. Higher densities tend to put pressure on land and natural resources due to agricultural production and urban development. In addition to this, the government is working on restricting exports to legally and sustainably harvested timber.

19

Tourism
Tourism is one of the largest contributors to the Belizean economy. Less vulnerable than the traditional industries, tourism serves as a catalyst for further national development, as it encourages new investment by both the private and public sector. It allows Belize to gain worldwide recognition and helps us to create greater awareness and appreciation for our own cultural and natural resources. Belize is home to a wide array of natural attractions. White sand islands surround the Western Hemispheres longest barrier reef, jungle-covered foothills rising up to the Maya Mountains, world-class diving and shing, lush rainforests, cascading waterfalls, ancient temples, and abundant wildlife are just a few of the attractions that allows Belize to be truly considered Mother Natures best-kept secret. Belizeans are committed to eco-tourism, conserving natural areas and cultural heritage, and are happy to share their paradise with those who wish to help preserve it. Each year more and more visitors come to Belize to enjoy its many wonders. Friends and families are drawn to this magical and beautiful land to dive, sh, hike, explore, learn, or just to relax. In 2004, total overnight tourist arrivals were 230,832, a 4.7% increase from 2003 gures (220,574). The main market for Belize continues to be the United States, and approximately 137,367 tourists were Americans. This represents a 7.9% increase from 2003. In 2004, there were 406 cruise ship calls into Belizean port. This represented a 28.9% increase in cruise ship calls over 2003. Total cruise passengers for 2004 totaled 851,436, which represents a 48.0% passenger increase from 2003. Tourism has been identied as one of Belizes priority sectors for attracting investors, as additional investment would result in the earning of additional foreign exchange through the export of tourism services. Growth in the industry would also result in spillover benets in other sectors/industries such as agriculture, handicraft making, and services that support or complement tourism. Each year the Belize Tourism Board releases its Travel & Tourism Statistics Digest showing the performance of the tourism industry.
