Group from Jamaica looking to bring bamboo business to Belize

A group out of Jamaica is looking at Belize to bring its bamboo business and subsequently, establishing a bamboo industry for the country.  Discussions with the Government of Belize have begun with its main investors having recently met with Prime Minister John Briceno. According to the Prime Minister, his administration is supporting this initiative, not only because of the potential revenues but also because bamboo is considered a carbon sink.

According to Bamboo Bioproducts International, the concept is to farm bamboo on a large scale, harvest on a managed and progressive basis and then convert the raw material at their mill.  The bamboo pulp will then be sold to multi-national corporations that will in-turn produce consumer tissue and personal hygiene products.
