Beltraide and partners to launch the GREENPYM program to target Belizean Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the Tourism Sector.

As part of our commitment to develop and enhance the capacity and competiveness of Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Belize, the Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE), Scotia Bank of Belize, Belize Chamber of Commerce & Industry (BCCI) and sub-contractor ECONOLER from Canada, are actively participating as strategic partners in an Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy Technical Assistance program called GREENPYME launched by the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC) in March 2009, targeting SMEs in Latin American and Caribbean countries that have high energy-saving potential.

The objective of this program is to provide SMEs with know-how, tools and technical & financial support for implementing energy efficiency measures and clean technologies based on a Walk Through Energy Audit (WTA) to be conducted by consultants from ECONOLER.

In Belize, GREENPYME has focused its attention to SMEs in the tourism sector, particularly, restaurants, hotel & resorts. Initially a list of potential SMEs was submitted to IIC by BELTRAIDE, Scotia Bank & BCCI from which IIC made a short listing of 12 SMEs to participate in the WTA, some of these companies are: San Ignacio Hotel & Resort, Robert’s Grove, Coco Plum Island Resort, Caribbean Paper Company, and KA’ANA Boutique. The consultant Mr. Eaton Haughton is in Belize doing the Walk through Audits from November 22nd 2009 to December 9th 2009.

For further information, please contact Jose Herrera, Director of the SME Capacity Building & Development Unit at 822-3737 or via email, jose@belizeinvest.org.bz
