After Covid-19, India looks toward Guatemala

By Mayora IP - 17/11/2020

From June to October 2020, major companies from India presented their products to buyers from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras through virtual meetings and exhibitions showcasing sectors like healthcare and hygiene; textiles; food, agriculture; technology and FMCG supply chain.

Among such companies were textile giants like Aditya Birla Group, Nagreeka Group, Rachna Art Prints, Raymond, Reliance Industries Limited and Rughani Brothers.

“The lockdown due to COVID-19, gave us an opportunity to use the virtual platform to present various sectors. Large companies from various sectors here in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras showed interest and we addressed concerns related to distance and language, among others,” stated BS Mubarak, Indian envoy to Guatemala, interviewed by Indian English-language business newspaper The Financial Express.

On October 27, 2020, Ambassador Mubarak received Vice Foreign Ministers of Guatemala to discuss issues related to strengthening bilateral cooperation, trade and investments between Guatemala and India as well as capacity development through the scholarships offered for Guatemalans under India’s flagship ITEC Programme.

Days before, Mubarak received and congratulated Guatemalan biochemist Alejandra Sierra for being selected among the Top 100 leaders at the Global Biotech Revolution of Cambridge, England. Both discussed about biotech cooperation between India and Guatemala.

Guatemala has great potential for IT and IT-enabled services and for BPOs. Locational advantage of these countries helps Indian IT companies to near-shore services to countries like the US and Canada.
