Roberto Brenes, general manager of the Center for Exports and Investment in Nicaragua, in his final report for 2010, noted that an increase in exports is expected for 2011, as external markets recover.
"According to Brenes, although access and positioning in new markets is a slow process, Nicaraguan products are in greater demand. These markets are demanding more finished products, although Nicaragua has done mostly fresh products and that is the area where we need to work the most”, reported the article in Elnuevodiario.com.ni.
