Guatemala to Explore Asian Markets

As part of its plans to increase exports to $13 billion a year, the Guatemalan Association of Exporters (Agexport) is encouraging entrepreneurs to pursue opportunities in Asia.

Friday, March 2, 2012

The Guatemalan Association of Exporters (Agexport) announced that by 2012 it expects to have reached a total of U.S. $13 billion in exported goods and services, about $2.6 billion more than in 2011, announced Francisco Menendez, the organization's president.

In order to reach this goal, the agency will boost the search for opportunities in Asian markets, reports Prensalibre.com.

To promote trade, Agexport will hold six national conventions with international participation; events that will strengthen the promotion of regional export supply and integrate them into the plan of visits to Panama and Colombia, adding to those already incorporated last year, such as Merida, Cancun , San Salvador, San Pedro Sula and San Jose.
