The International Trade Administration is organizing a trade mission to Central America for June 2015. This mission is open to U.S. companies from a cross-section of industries with growing potential in Central America but is focused on U.S. companies in best prospect sectors such as safety and security equipment, automotive parts/service equipment, food processing and packing equipment, renewable energy technologies, and hotel and restaurant equipment.
A minimum of 25 and a maximum of 35 companies will be selected to participate in this mission. The maximum number of companies that may be selected for each country are 25 for Guatemala, five for El Salvador, five for Belize, 20 for Costa Rica, 10 for Honduras and five for Nicaragua.
Each applicant must submit by March 20 a completed and signed mission application and supplemental application materials, including adequate information on its products and/or services, primary market objectives, and goals for participation. Each applicant must also certify that the products and services it seeks to export through the mission are either produced in the United States or, if not, marketed under the name of a U.S. firm and have at least 51 percent U.S. content of the value of the finished product or service.
