Taiwan and Belize signed an economic cooperation agreement in late September. Belize is a member of the Caribbean Community Common Market (CARICOM) and the former Ambassador of Belize, Diane Haylock said Taiwan and Belize worked on the agreement in 2019 and it took them a year to sign the agreement because CARICOM had to vet it the agreement to ensure that it does not adversely affect the CARICOM grouping which is made up of 15 member states. The Ambassador said the agreement will be beneficial for both sides in the future.
