Guatemala, the Best Country to Invest in

Guatemala has an integrated cluster to promote interaction among companies that trade in yarn, clothing, fabric finishing, garments, and accessories. This enables the industry to offer high value-added products with a complete package and rapid response services to its clients around the world.

The Guatemalan textile and apparel industry has more than 30 years of history and represents 14.16% of total exports, which makes it the main exporting sector in the country. It is a booming business, and Guatemala serves as a platform for companies in the sector to get closer to major clients worldwide (United States, Mexico).

Some of these, traditional to the country, are very important (as is the case of agriculture, which represents 10 percent of the national GDP). However, commercial activity (23) and industry (18) are equally important.
