New Markets for Honduran Banana

Asian countries have shown interest in importing Honduran bananas.

"Even in Ecuador there is interest in buying fruit because their production became tremendously more expensive, aggravated by the fact that it costs them $ 1.60 per box each time they pass the Canal" added Castillo to La Tribuna.
