Belize has attained a gradual economic development based on its tourism and agricultural industries.The GNI per capita of Belize is US$4,510(2013:World Bank), and the country is classified as a middle income country. However, the country was heavily impacted by the 2008 global economic crisis and it is highly vulnerable to other external factors such as frequent natural disasters. JICA's support to Belize focused on "disaster risk reduction and environmental conservation" and "disparity reduction" in order to tackle the country's external and internal vulnerabilities.
