El Salvador's agricultural exports grow by 26%

El Salvador's agricultural exports form the other side of the rising food costs coin: while food and fuel costs rise within the country, farmers are getting more money than ever from their exports of food products.

Friday, July 25, 2008

The Minister of Agriculture for the nation, Mario Salverría, says the main product being exported is coffee, which has brought in 204 million dollars worth of revenues this year.
Tuna exports have provided another 105 million dollars, and ethnic products, for expatriots living abroad, generated a further 60 million dollars.
All told, Salverría expects that farm exports will top 1.2 billion dollars by the end of the year.
