Brief description of call: Nicaragua is a country with a small, but growing economy with numerous sectors that are of interest to U.S. companies. U.S. products are often associated with higher quality, and as the economy grows so does the opportunity for U.S. exports. Ambassador Phyllis Powers will share her views on the opportunities that exist in Nicaragua, especially due to the Central American–U.S. Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR), and Nicaragua’s growing economy. She will describe the challenges and opportunities of doing business in Nicaragua. Please join Ambassador Powers to discuss the export opportunities in Nicaragua’s growing economy.
