The program, coordinated by EXPORTA, El Salvador's exports promotion agency, requires companies to "be formally incorporated, have at least three years of operating history and register sales of more than $100.000 a year".

This initiative will also provide Salvadoran companies with market information, training, technical assistance and promotion efforts in these three markets.
