By 2020, the sector expects to continue with the good numbers, despite strong fears that the industry will be affected by an international crisis, which would be explained by conflicts worldwide.

Dean Garcia, executive director of the Nicaraguan Association of the Textile and Clothing Industry (Anitec), told Laprensa.com.ni that by 2020 "... I would expect us to have the same situation as last year, we must also take into account that this year there are other elements such as the international crisis, the slowdown in the world economy ... I would say that ending with the same positive figures as last year would be satisfactory."

In relation to new projects, García explained that "... because of the same uncertainty that exists at the international and national level at the moment, companies in the sector are not contemplating making new direct investments during 2020. The only project that is currently underway is the Los Brasiles textile company, which would employ some 600 workers."
