PM Briceno on Belize’s Shipping Woes

And while that is good news from Taiwan, there are some businesses in Belize that are monitoring the shipping challenges. There have been reports of millions of dollars’ in good stuck just outside the Los Angeles, California ports as containers are backed up. It is a shipping crisis in the United States that has become even more concerning since it is the Christmas season. Prime Minister John Briceno, however, doesn’t seem too concern over the issue.

Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister of Belize: “It’s not bad. We do have some in the sense that there’s a shortage off goods but it seems that we’ve managed to get most of our stuff in to Belize so far but the challenge is the prices continue to go up and the prices continue to go up from two aspects one from the cost of the goods and two from the actual shipping that has continued to go up exponentially. To me it’s almost unexplainable to say why is it that these prices continue to go up ?”

Love News understands that even when the delayed containers arrive in Belize, it could possibly lead to sharp increases on goods as there are additional costs for everyday a container sits at the port.
