Forestry is the foundation of our Nation’s History. The first settlers to visit this land were wood cutters and the economy was built on wood cutting. In 1774, the largest recorded mahogany tree was felled measuring 3.65 meters (11.96 ft.) in diameter. In 1886, a visit was carried out to inspect the forests and timber trade and resulted in a report, Hooper Report, that recommended the forming of a forest department.
BTIA is Belize’s largest tourism association, and as an umbrella organization, encompasses all sectors within the industry. With twenty-five years of membership commitment, BTIA is still the voice of the tourism industry, and provides a network and forum for addressing tourism related concerns. It is our membership base that keeps the association as strong as it is, so it is important for our members to remain actively involved.
Border Management Agency (BMA) evolved from the desire of the Belizean People and Government to gradually upgrade to the highest level the service provided to our visiting tourists, guests and Belizean people at our borders.
Destination Belize is the Official Belize Visitor’s Guide of the Belize Tourism Industry Association (BTIA).
The idea for the KREM Radio station originated in early 1979 while Rufus X and I were visiting New Orleans. There was a New Orleans deejay I liked, by the name of Sister Love, and one day Rufus and his cousin, Sam Wiley, who was our host, showed me the building where the radio station which featured Sister Love was located. It was quite a modest, one flat structure, much smaller than the three story Albert Cattouse Building from where the Belize government monopoly station – Radio Belize – was broadcasting.
