What is BIP?
Taking a look at the opportunities under the Belize Investment Portfolio


The Belize Investment Portfolio (BIP) Campaign is an initiative launched with the aim to foster the development of a national portfolio to fast-track investment generation efforts, both local and foreign, through targeted matchmaking of pre-packaged investment concepts and projects.
 
Through the advancement of the campaign, BELTRAIDE, through its technical unit BelizeINVEST, mandated to serve as Belize's National Investment Promotion Agency, expects to further substantiate investment concepts submitted by key public sector Government Ministries and stakeholders into actionable business cases aligned with national development priorities. Additionally, the campaign strives to support private sector investment projects seeking financing and / or investment partners by promoting and matchmaking these "shovel ready" business opportunities through various platforms regionally, inclusive of Connect Americas and the Caribbean Association of Investment Promotion Agencies (CAIPA), key supporters and collaborators of this initiative in Belize.
