United States Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade Marisa Lago led a trade mission of 32 U.S. companies to Central America from August 18-22 to promote U.S. exports in the region and strengthen bilateral commercial relations.

The Central America Trade Mission and Business Conference brought together U.S. businesses with pre-screened distributors, sales representatives and other prospective partners in six Central American markets: El Salvador, Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and Panama. 

During her trip, Under Secretary Lago met with Central American government officials to bolster bilateral commercial ties, advance avenues for mutual economic opportunity and advocate for U.S. exporters. 

“Central America is home to crucial export markets that offer immense opportunities for U.S. businesses and workers across industries,” said Under Secretary Lago.
