Nicaragua sets $2.8 billion export record in 2012
Nicaragua’s exports grew 17.5 percent in 2012 to finish the year with a record-setting $2.8 billion in sales, not including free-trade zone products.
While many export products benefited from sustained commodity prices, which on average increased slightly last year, Nicaragua also increased its total export volume by 16.2 percent from 2011.
Coffee reclaimed its former position at the top of Nicaragua’s export list in 2012, accounting for $519 million in sales last year.
