Trade, Industrialization, and Integration in Twentieth-Century Central America

By Irma Tirado de Alonso | Go to book overview

nontraditional exports to other markets they will need to "rethink" their industrial strategy.

Last the region needs technical assistance not only for industry but for agriculture as well and a better system of quality control in both sectors. It is necessary at this junction to pay attention to essential aspects of marketing: collecting information about foreign markets developing new contacts and improving internal technical management.

Central America is now on the road to economic recovery after a long and arduous decade of stagnant and sometimes negative growth. There has been recent evidence of increasing nontraditional exports to the United States and elsewhere along with other encouraging news on the trade front. It is hoped that this new attitude toward exports combined with the improving political climate of the region and the expressed desire of developed countries to assist in the attainment of Central America's goals will produce some positive results in the not-too-distant future.
