Agro-industry and mining will boost development of Honduras, say business leaders

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

Agro-industry, including food-processing, and mining will be the main driving forces of the Honduran economy this year, said Alejandro Álvarez, the vice-president of the business confederation.

Álvarez said that the development of farming will promote the poultry industry by increased exports.

On mining, he said that Honduras could "easily" expect $10 billion of investment over the next 15 years. But he added: "That will have to wait until the new mining law is passed. It's been hanging about now for several months in the Congress."
