Private Sector Struggles to Fill Vacancies in Belize Amid BPO Boom

Private Sector Struggles to Fill Vacancies in Belize Amid BPO Boom

The report by Labour Commissioner Dominguez, brings us to a very important matter when it comes to employment.  For some months now, Love News has been hearing members of the private sector commenting on the hard time they are having in filling vacancies for their businesses.  These private sector businesses range from administrative jobs, to the traditional jobs in the service industry, and skilled workers.  In a recent interview with the Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry, President Marcello Blake indicated that the boom in the BPO sector may be a contributing factor to this recent phenomenon.  We spoke with Prime Minister John Briceno on the matter, and asked if it could be a matter of too many jobs, and too little qualified persons.

The situation comes at a time when the Leader of the Opposition, Moses Shyne Barrow, has harped on the country not having enough jobs for Belizeans.  Prime Minister Briceno gloated at the boom in employment as a response to Barrow’s criticism.
