El Salvador to Assist SMEs in Exporting

A new program, called "Step by Step to Exporting" ("Exportar Paso a Paso" in Spanish), will simplify the procedures required to export to Honduras, Panama and Dominican Republic.

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.
