Belize is an independent democratic state of the British Commonwealth since September 21, 1981, a member of the Caribbean Financial Assistance Group (CFATF).
The system of law and the judiciary in Belize are similar to the English legal model. For Belize, as for most countries in the Caribbean, there is a high level of corruption.
Belize has free trade agreements with Venezuela and Colombia. When exporting its agricultural products, Belize receives certain benefits under the American development program of the countries of the Caribbean region and the relevant EU Convention. Belizean goods are exempt from customs duties in Canada in accordance with the privileges of the British Commonwealth.
The principles of confidentiality can be violated in accordance with the new legislation, which came into force in 2000. This legislation is designed to overcome the privileges of confidentiality.
