Variation of regional exports 

Between the first quarter of 2017 and the same period in 2018, the value exported from Central America increased by 20%, rising from $43 million to $52 million. The growth registered in 2017 reflects a continuation of the increase in sales abroad, since for the months referred to 2017 a 45% year-on-year increase was reported. 

The reported increase is mainly explained by the regional sales made to the USA.

During the first three months of the year, 56% of the value exported from Central America went to the USA, 27% to the Netherlands, 6% to the United Kingdom and 4% to Belgium. 

In the period in question in the last seven years the US was the destination market for exports that grew the most, given that in 2012 it represented 9% of total Central American sales and in 2018 that proportion reached 56%.
