Robert Callahan, U.S. Ambassador in Nicaragua, added that the Central American country currently has a positive trade balance of $1.078 with the U.S.
Exports have grown a mild 3.4%, with agricultural goods leading the way; Guatemala’s trade balance with the U.S. remains negative.
The free trade agreements with the United States have contributed to the economic growth of partner countries, said the American ambassador to Guatemala, Stephen McFarland.
Trade in some of the countries involved has grown by 20 percent since the introduction two years ago of the Cafta accord between the United States and Central America and the Dominican Republic, according to US Department of Trade figures.
Nicaragua now has a surplus of $1 billion and trade with the country has grown by 75% in six years, thanks to the DR-CAFTA, overtaking Guatemala and the rest of the region.
