The goals set by Guatemalan exporters for 2013 include the opening up of the markets of China and Canada for peas, green beans and shrimp.

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 reports that "the new president of Agexport, Estuardo Castillo, revealed some of the most noteworthy projects for the year 2013, through which they are aiming to reach the goal of $12,000 million in exports."

Among the most important projects is obtaining permission to export shrimp to the People's Republic of China and entry into the Canadian market with Guatemalan peas and green beans .

"Exporters have always been innovative and optimistic, even in difficult times, so for this year we will aim to get closer to the $12,000 million mark, but beyond the amount exported, the important thing is that we see these goals we have set as an option to generate new businesses", he added.
