Salvadoran exports increase despite crisis

Exporter and the government expect that demand will not dry up due to the global situation.

Thursday, September 25, 2008

The president of the Salvadoran Corporation of Exporters (Coexport), Vilma Calderon, explained that this behavior is rare. "Exports have not fallen at all, instead they have increased by 20% as of August, they are three times the growth rate for 2007 when we grew 7.5%. We are now growing at 20%, this is very unusual because we have grown in non-traditional products exported to markets in the United States and Central America," the Corporation's representative pointed out.
