Belize, Quintana Roo working to establish new tourist routes

Cancun, Q.R. — Mexico and Belize are working together to establish new tourist routes that would result in economic benefits for both sides.

The Ambassador of Mexico in Belize, Carlos Quesnel, affirmed that international agreements are being sought between both points to establish new tourist and commercial routes that would generate economic benefits for the southern part of Quintana Roo and for the central part of the neighboring nation.

The diplomat said that he has been working on these bi-national agreements to strengthen ties between both borders as well as generate benefits for businessmen and service providers. He added that the authorities of Belize have held several meetings with the government administration of Quintana Roo to establish expediting mechanisms at the migration points in order to achieve a greater flow of passers-by along the border.

In addition, it is intended that import and export agreements for different products and merchandise be broader and more agile in order to generate attractive marketing points. He said that the work is very advanced and expected to continue in 2018.

The creation of the Strategic Audit Center, which will allow the opening of new opportunities for products that are generated in each country, as well as offer tax benefits for the companies that come to invest, is considered of great importance.

Both sides of the border are hoping the talks lead to greater benefits in economic flow and tourism from all over the world.
