Small businesses are the mainstay of Central America’s economy, says Europe
The structure of Central America’s economy depends on small businesses, said Rafael Señán, the European Union’s representative in Guatemala.
Señán was speaking on a forum on support for small businesses. The meeting was inaugurated in Antigua by the Guatemalan vice-president, Rafael Estrada.
Some 80 percent of all jobs in Central America are created by small and medium-sized businesses, Señán said.
