American Chamber of Commerce of Belize

About Us

The American Chamber of Commerce of Belize (AmCham-Belize) is a not-for-profit organization made up of individuals and companies, both Belizean and American, that seeks to empower its members to develop their potential to the maximum based on three pillars – economic, professional, and social – through the facilitation of access to knowledge, opportunities, a culture of best practices, respect for the rule of law, and corporate social responsibility.

The activities organized by AmCham-Belize are specifically designed to keep our members informed of the most important trends in the business world, on both the national and the international level. Through our portfolio of services we also seek to offer them concrete solutions and opportunities for entrepreneurial and professional growth that manage to have a positive impact on the economic development of their businesses, and consequently of the nation.
