Tuesday, October 28, 2008
While the total export of goods to foreign markets grew only 5.5%, the export of non-traditional goods - such as services - increased by 20.5%, according to data for national sales to the exterior from September 2007 to 2008.
Even though an 8% decrease in tourism is estimated, it would be offset by the digital advertising, financial support and software sectors.
Services sales equal that of maquilas and represent three fourths of the non-traditional exports.
Services exports have grow by 7.7%; during the first six months of 2013 they totaled $2.9327 billion.
The first edition of the service export event brought together around 500 businesspeople from 23 countries around the world.
