Regional trade recovers to $5.7 billion after 2009 drop
Exports in the Central American common market rose by 9.3 percent in 2010, but they still fell short of pre-crisis levels.
The trend was similar to the first years of the century, before the world economy dipped into recession.
Having reached $6.4 billion in 2008, the region’s internal trade fell to $5.3 billion in 2009. In 2010, however, the total recovered to $5.7 billion.
