Dr. Leroy Almendarez, Executive Director of BELTRAIDE, emphasized the significance of nurturing local economic development, elevating product standards, and fostering sustainable business prospects within Belize. He expressed, “Today's session marks a significant stride towards fortifying our local economy and empowering our MSMEs, and we eagerly anticipate sustained collaboration and advancements in this initiative.”
