According to the Trade Policy Director of the Ministry of the Economy, among the main products being exported are textiles, frozen vegetables and sesame.
Elsalvador.com published more information: "The government indicated that a free trade agreement with Canada would give El Salvador a more open market for domestic products such as indigo, sesame, organic gourmet and traditional coffeel, semita (a cake made with tropical fruits such as pineapple, and guava), beans, sea products, dehydrated lemon and juice, ethnic drinks (horchata-barley), loroco (palm blossoms,) chili sauce, natural soap, honey and cereal, among others."
An increase in non- traditional exports offset the fall in foreign sales of traditional products.
According to the report entitled "Trends in Foreign Trade in 2013 in El Salvador" prepared by the Ministry of Economy (Minec) exports in 2013 totaled $5.491 billion, an increase of 2.8 % compared to 2012, when the total figure was $5.339 billion .
Amid the economic recovery of its major trading partners, El Salvador’s exports grew at a faster pace and more solidly than imports.
An increase of more than $50 million in exports in the clothing, machinery and apparatus, agro-industry and textiles sectors and regional chains are what stands out in the report on International Trade for the Fourth Quarter of 2010 prepared by the Economic Intelligence Unit at the Ministry of Economy, said Deputy Economy Minister Mario Roger Hernandez.
