The Guatemalan Software Export Committee (SOFEX) established a strategic plan that includes the creation of a regional cluster and 50% growth in software exports in the next five years.
The manager of the service sector of the Guatemalan Association of Exporters (AGEXPORT), Claudia Del Aguila, informed the Sigloxxi.com: "To date, there already exists a first attempt at integration between the producers of El Salvador and Guatemala in which $400 thousand have been invested. The hope is that the initiative will extend itself to 280 businesses in the region."
The Guatemalan companies Consultesa, Aldea Systems, Gysa, Icon, Engaje Byte, Sega, Lankin Tecnologies, and BDG have opened offices abroad.
As noted by Jorge Maldonado, president of the Union for Export Software-Developers (Sofex), the new offices will be located in the United States, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, and Peru.
