Saturday, May 14, 2022 – The Ministry of Tourism & Diaspora Relations (MTDR) participated in the Belize Association of Houston Fun Day event in Houston, Texas on May 14, 2022 which saw the participation of approximately 200 Belizeans. The main purpose of the fun day was to re-organize their membership and inform those present of the association’s future plans for the organization.
Ambassador for Diaspora Relations, Mrs. Sandhya Murphy made a presentation on behalf of the Ministry and spoke about the Diaspora Relations Unit’s objectives and its Build Belize initiative. A booth was set up by the MTDR to assist Belizeans at the event with their questions and concerns, which ranged from renewing their passport, purchasing land and the Diaspora Returnee Incentive Program.
Ongoing collaboration with other Belizean organizations in other cities will ensure further reach within the Belizean diaspora. The event created an opportunity for the MTDR to strengthen its relations with the diaspora and identify opportunities for business and development in Belize.
