Project Objectives: Promote awareness and appreciation of colonial heritage and cultural identity through the rejuvenation of a pilot selection of historical/colonial buildings. Ultimately, the benefits of the Project would include reducing loss of economic opportunities in the downtown area via the development of cultural tourism.
Executing Agency: Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation (MTCA), Belize
Implementation Arrangement: The Executing Agency (EA) is the Belize Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation (MTCA) through its Planning and Project Development Unit (PPDU). Other key stakeholders include the Ministry of Finance, Public Service, Energy and Public Utilities (MOF), the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH), and the Belize City Council (BCC).
The Project Steering Committee (PSC), chaired by the CEO of MTCA, was established among related governmental stakeholders to give strategic orientation, oversight, and coordination to the Project. The PSC provides technical and financial guidance to the Project and integrates ongoing and future national tourism development projects as well as development plans in the downtown area of Belize City.
