The main objectives of the summit were: To examine Belize's position as a tourism destination in the aftermath of the COVID 19 pandemic; To gather data and industry positions to contribute to the revision of the National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan; To formulate recommendations for Belize Tourism’s Strategic Direction in a Post Covid 19 Era; and, To discuss destination best practices

As a part of its mandate, BTIA is committed to advocating for the sustainable development of the tourism industry. With that in mind, Executive Director, Linette Canto was pleased to participate in the Marine Spatial Planning Process (MSP). MSP is a public process of analyzing and allocating the spatial and temporal distribution of human activities in marine areas. The overarching principles, once defined, will guide decision-making, establish how the process will be conducted and how stakeholders will be engaged.
