Screen_Shot_2014-01-29_at_8.09.14_PMTonight, there are reports coming from Subteniente Lopez at the Santa Elena Border that products are not being allowed to be exported or imported to and from Belize and Mexico. So, what’s the rationale behind this? Well, turns out the license for the Agencia Aduanal, “Servicios Aduaneros Integrados,” which is the only broker agency for the importation and exportation of goods on the Mexican side of the border in Subteniente Lopez, has been suspended since Friday of last week until further notice. CTV3 News understands that the agency was suspended for no apparent reason. But the true question is, how does this affect commercial trade here in Belize? The brokers and businesspersons we spoke to today state that millions of money is being lost as they cannot carry their products, much less sell it when the trucks have been stationed at the border.


“Si hay exportación porque ahorita está afectando todo el país, no se puede exportar nada y no se puede importar nada, y si no puede importar nada los inversionistas no pueden traer el producto, no hay trabajo, no pueden vender, y todo el producto está estancado en el lado mexicano.”

“Por cuanto tiempo está esta situación así?”


“Desde el Jueves de la semana pasada y hasta ahorita no sabemos nada y no sabemos hasta cuando, nos dicen como hoy, nos dicen mañana, unos no dicen quince días, otros nos dicen un mes, así es que nada esta concreto hasta el momento. Afecta a los loaders, afecta a BAHA, afecta el govenment revenue, afecta a los bróker, a los boarder management, a bastantes importador y exportador del país.  Ahorita ni verduras no pueden pasar y nada puede pasar y todo eso tiene, es peor que un strike, porque no Belice lo está haciendo es México.”

“Y el licenciado encargado de la aduana o sea de los pedimentos del lado Chetumal ha dado alguna declaración porque ácido el problema?"


“Sinceramente no sabemos exactamente que es el problema, nosotros no sabemos y no tenemos nada concreto pues esto es, solo nos dijeron que se suspendió la licencia le patente que le llamamos la licencia.”

Victor Castillo – Reporter

“Sera que no hay otros motivos en cómo se pueda introducir los productos a Belice y de Belice a México tiene que pasar por ese patente o ese servicio?”


“Lo que sucede esa agencia aduanal es el que tiene el patente para hacer trámites comerciales hay otra agencia aduanal pero su patente solo es de transmigrarte, solo vehículo y ellos se los cancelan, pero Azueta está encargado de mercancía en general y i Belice manda algo a los Estado Unidos ellos son los que tienen la fianza, así es que la otra agencia no tiene patente para ello solo Azueta y ese es la razón que suspendiendo su patente de Azueta ya nada se puede mover hasta ahorita y lo único que le han dicho a mis clientes que ellos están buscando otros medios para poder facilitar como hasta ahorita nada, como simplemente Brodies me llamo anoche que tienen una carga haya y ellos e están preguntando cuanto tiempo, y eso es una simple y sencilla pregunta, cuanto tiempo, él es Manolo Manuel Azueta Cárdenas.”


“The situation is that the agency was suspended and when it is suspended there is no other agency here, and so you cannot import nor export through Mexico through this border.  I can’t import anything and they are trying hard from yesterday, today and tomorrow now they say maybe Friday but if Friday comes and nothing then we have to wait until next week Monday.  I think another agency is trying to open but it is not as easy as how they say.”

Victor Castillo – Reporter

“What is the process for you to get a pedimento, I understand a pedimento, and it is a declaration here for the Customs there in Corozal, what is the process and how long does it normally takes for you to get this pedimento?”



“The pedimento you can get it in one day, the company sends the invoice and then the agency process it and then the same day you can go and it is like a customs broker.”

Our news team will have in-depth coverage of this story in tomorrow’s newscast.
