Belize - Current Account

First quarter growth was likely subdued following the sharp slowdown in the final quarter of 2018. Merchandise exports tumbled in Q1 amid shrinking shipments of citrus products, and the adverse timing of bulk sugar deliveries which hampered sugar exports in the quarter. Nevertheless, tourist and cruise ship arrivals rose at a brisk pace in January and February, which should have bolstered growth in Q1. On the political front, a majority of Belizeans voted in a referendum on 8 May to request a hearing with the International Court of Justice for a decision on a longstanding territorial dispute with Guatemala. This could help end the bilateral conflict and the uncertainty it brings.
