Taiwan's embassy in Guatemala has announced a program to assist exporters to certify their products.
An article in Prensalibre.com reports that "Adolfo Sun, Ambassador of Taiwan, said the first sector to benefit will be meat producers, so that they can certify their production and enter the Asian market."
The Asian country is primarily interested in Guatemalan products such as lumber and fish flour.
In August 2009, a group of Taiwanese businessmen will visit Guatemala looking to take advantage of the possibilities created by the Free Trade Agreement between the two countries which has been ratified since July of 2006.
In one month, an international bid will be called for the construction of a section of the Atlántico highway, from Agua Caliente to Sanarate.
