US ambassador politely criticises Belize over IP failure

7 News reports from Belize on the seventh annual US Embassy exhibition, “Made in the USA”, to encourage Belizean importers to buy more. According to the report, Robert Dieter (US Ambassador to Belize) said:
“Belize should continue to strengthen its institutional capabilities and competitiveness. This includes respecting international law that comes with participating in a world economy such as enforcing intellectual property rights. However in previous years the perception of corruption has reduced the nation’s performance indicators. This is something that must change if Belize is to move forward in a meaningful way with its own economic development.”
