Guatemala's mining sector weakens despite investment

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

The Guatemalan mining sector contributed to 6 percent less in the country's gross domestic product in 2013 compared with 2012.

The sector's total exports dropped 8.8 percent, from $557 million in 2012 down to $508.1 million last year.

Despite the drop, the mining industry accounted for 42 percent of Guatemala's total foreign direct investment last year.
