Belize has an area of approximately 23,026 sq km, and is bounded by Mexico to the north and Guatemala to the west and south. The administrative capital of Belize is Belmopan, but the major commercial centre is Belize City, which is located on the eastern coast close to the major international airport.

Belize is a member of the British Commonwealth, the United Nations and the Non-Aligned Movement. In Belize, executive authority is exercised by the Cabinet under the leadership of the Prime Minister, subject to approval by a 28 member Senate with the majority appointed on the recommendation of the Prime Minister. There are two main political parties; both parties are committed to the economic development of the country and the encouragement of overseas investment.

The country also offers a unique mix of unspoiled woodlands, caves, rivers, mountains, waterfalls and jungle, in addition to a wealth of Mayan archaeological sites. There are also forest reserves, wildlife sanctuaries, marine resort areas and the world's only jaguar reserve.

The government of Belize is fully committed to the ongoing development of Belize as a leading offshore jurisdiction. Through regular consultations with the private sector, the government ensures that its policies and legislation continue to meet the needs and interests of the international financial community in an environment which engenders trust and confidence.

An IBC is formed under the International Business Company Act 1990 and generally must conduct its trading and business outside Belize.
