\ More than 30 top CEOs and business executives from Central America and the Caribbean gathered in El Salvador this week on the margins of the Third Sica-Caricom Summit of Leaders, to discuss meaningful ways of expanding trade and investment in the face of the global economic slowdown.\ \ Central America and the Caribbean represent a combined market of approximately 56 million people. And officials say the time has come to pursue all business opportunities and come up with concrete initiatives to expand trade and investment between both regions.\ \ Among the current challenges to trade and investment identified by business executives from both regions are: limited transportation options, challenges to connectivity, a lack of data on investment and economic opportunities, varied business and investment regulations and legislation, a language barrier and visa restrictions.\ \ Original source: South Florida Caribbean News\ \ \ \
