Welcome to the UK Belize Association

The United Kingdom Belize Association (UKBA) aims to act as a focus for people in the British Isles who are working or interested in Belize. In conjunction with the Belize High Commission, this is principally channelled through annual meetings, where the results of research activities and visits or projects covering a wide range of topics and interests are presented. These informal meetings have traditionally been held in either London or Edinburgh but can be organised at any appropriate location.

A further objective is to stimulate and encourage activities that benefit Belize and help to raise its profile within the UK and internationally.
