Central America, a promising destination for foreign investments to be considered post-COVID-19


The report "Central America: Integration, Investment, and Trade Opportunities" aims to be a tool for all those interested in doing business in the region.

Tegucigalpa, November 2nd, 2020.- In an adverse context, marked by the pandemic, the social and economic crisis, the region has come closer to achieving its longstanding goal of integration, which has led to greater economic growth in the last five years in contrast to other economic blocks.

This was stated by CABEI's Executive President, Dr. Dante Mossi, during the virtual launch for the report's first edition "Central America: Integration, Investment, and Trade Opportunities," organized by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration and the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum OMFIF.

According to President Mossi, after the United States, intraregional trade has historically been the second largest export destination. As a block, the region is the fourth largest economy in Central America, which is why partners such as the Republic of Korea have integrated.

The report is the first in a series that will share key knowledge about the region. It will provide valuable information for stakeholders, Central American government institutions, governments with political, economic, and social interests in the region, the donor community, international financial institutions, and local, regional, and international investors to make informed decisions.

Sixty years after its creation, CABEI reaffirms its fundamental role as an opportunity link between the Central American region and the world, through its continuous efforts to improve the region's competitiveness in world markets and to create favorable and innovative investment climates in its member countries.
