Department: Technical Cooperation
Project Name: Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Project (Belize)
Project Description: Trade is flourishing in Belize. The government of Belize plans to use ICT to control and monitor the import and export of goods, and to stabilize the local market, further promoting trade facilitation. In 2013, Taiwan and Belize joined forces on the BELAPS (Belize Electronic Licenses and Permits System) project designed to digitalize and integrate the import and export licensing services provided by various government departments. These departments include Fisheries Department, Forestry Department, the Belize Bureau of Standards, the Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA) and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Agriculture. Meanwhile, this project also focuses on the online payment and enhances the connection with Belize's own Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA). Once fully online in 2017, the BELAPS system will be able to provide Belizean citizens and businesses with a one-stop online service, and thereby reduce the time and fees involved in processing the relevant licenses.
