BTB to Introduce
New Tour Guide License
In an effort to improve the services of the tourism industry with greater efficiency and effectiveness, it has become necessary to streamline the BTB’s tour guide licensing procedure. It is very important that we ensure the people operating as tour guides are qualified, well trained and have the required competencies as per the industry standards to be tour guides. With that in mind, the new plan includes the issuance of new cards, re-designed with added security features, including hologram and color coding. Each destination will have its individual expiration date, which will be the last day of the assigned month, so as to streamline renewals and the BTB internal procedure. These new changes will be outlines in a series of destination consultations with the tour guide associations.
Other BTB News:
Site Visitations Yield Results
The Destination Panning Department of the Belize Tourism Board has recently launched a series of site visitations with the aim of focusing on specific site issues such as safety and security, tour operator and tour guide compliance and other general issues as it relates to site visitation and usage by our local guides and guests. These site visitations will include all parks, both marine and terrestrial. As a result of the assessment done from the first site visit at Caves Branch Nohoch Che’en Reserve, improvements can already be seen. The team has already responded with additional Tourism Police (TPU) presence so as to ensure compliance with guide to guest ratio. Equipment upgrade includes communication and transportation as well as improved signage. The much needed work on the access road to caves branch is underway through the good efforts of Ministry of Works.
New and Upgraded Visitor Centers Coming Soon!
The BTB’s Marketing Department has embarked on a much needed initiative, with the establishment of visitor centers in all destinations. The first two fully equipped and staffed visitor information booths will be completed in the upcoming weeks at both border points of Santa Elena and Benque Viejo. These two key locations are essential for visitor border crossings, particularly at our Western Border where European visitors arrivals into Belize is on the increase. Punta Gorda will receive a much needed facelift and upgrading of its current Visitor Information Center, currently run by the BTIA (Belize Tourism Industry Association). The first phase of the Punta Gorda visitor center is a tourism partnership between Border Management Agency (BMA) and the BTB. It is the intention of the BTB to have high quality and effective information centers in all destinations. Orange Walk Town in the North has more recently launched an ambitious plan for their visitor center with BTIA and Orange Walk Town Council.

New Solicitor-General takes up duties
Attorney-General, Hon. Bernard Q. Pitts, has informed that a new Solicitor-General, has taken up duties. Mrs. Cheryl Krusen (neeThompson) succeeds Mr. Oscar Ramjeet, who completed his tour of duty on June 30, 2011. Mrs. Krusen assumed duties on July 1, 2011.

Cheryl Krusen (nee Thompson), a Jamaican and Belizean national, is an Attorney-at-law with more than thirty years of experience in the legal profession. Her inherent love of national, regional and international law have been her primary focus for many years, relating them in particular towards assisting the development of jurisprudence in the Caribbean region. The new Solicitor-General obtained her LL.B (Hons.) from the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus in 1978 and completed her Legal Education Certificate at the Norman Manley Law School, Kingston Jamaica in 1980. She was awarded an M Sc. from the Mona Campus at the University of the West Indies in 1996.
Mrs. Krusen’s career has included such notable roles as Crown Counsel in the Office of the Director of Prosecutions, Belize; Magistrate for the Judicial Districts of Belize and Corozal, Belize; Deputy Registrar of the Supreme Court of Jamaica; Senior Legal Officer at the Port Authority of Jamaica; Director of Legal Services at the National Housing Trust of Jamaica; Legal Adviser to the Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of Government Business in the House of Representatives of Jamaica; and Head of the Legal Unit/Legal Adviser to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Jamaica. She has represented Jamaica in numerous international fora and contributed significantly as a member of the Task Force and Drafting Committee which amended the Treaty of Chaguaramas – the instrument creating CARICOM, including the Single Market and Economy (CSME). Mrs. Krusen was also actively involved in the process of advising on the instruments which led to the formation of the Caribbean Court of Justice.
Mrs. Krusen worked with the Commonwealth Secretariat in London from 2002–2008 as Adviser and Head of the Law Development Section charged with responsibility for international legal issues involving, inter alia, national and international tribunal matters for Member Countries.
From April 2008–October 2010, Mrs. Krusen was named General Counsel for CARICOM, a role which utilized her broad international experience as well as her intimate knowledge of Caribbean Member Countries. In her post as General Counsel of CARICOM, she was required to administer advice to that regional institution and, when called upon, to national governments as well as appear as Counsel before the Caribbean Court of Justice.
Mrs. Krusen has written several publications and is the author of Bringing Justice Home: The Road to Final Regional Appellate Court Establishment. She is also a member of the Advisory Board of the Commonwealth Law Bulletin.
She is married to Cristóbal Krusen and they have six adult children.
