Description With the support of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), a Port study is being conducted to:
(i)           to produce an independent comparative analysis of the relative strengths and weaknesses of Belize’s three deep sea ports in terms of location, physical characteristics, economic costs and benefits and environmental impact;(ii)           on the basis of this analysis to recommend an investment strategy to meet Belize’s needs, including identification of the appropriate location and financing options that should be considered for expansion of facilities for handling bulk commodities.

Status of Implementation Ongoing
Impact  This study will enable GOB to make evidence based decisions about major port investments. In particular, it will need to determine the appropriate strategies for investments in the country’s three ports – Port of Belize, Big Creek Port, and Commerce Bight – and to determine what type of financing structures (including the various forms of Public-Private Partnerships, PPPs) might be appropriate for expansion of bulk handling facilities.
