Friday, October 4, 2013

Guatemala's exports are expected to grow 2.5 percent this year, according to the Economic Commission for Latin America, Eclac.

Exports are expected to grow 4.3 percent in volume, but with a 2.9 percent drop in price, said Hugo Beteta, director of Eclac for Mexico.

Even though products such as sugar, banana and garments have had a positive perfomance, other products such as coffee, cardamom and metals have seen a decrease in sales, said Beteta.
