Central America including Nicaragua offers Finnish companies many business opportunities in forestry, mining, energy and maritime sectors. Nicaragua is also building a canal to connect the Caribbean Sea (the Atlantic Ocean) with the Pacific Ocean. The canal project will include 6 sub projects: Canal (including locks), 2 Ports, a Free Trade Zone, Holiday Resorts, an International Airport and several roads.
H.E. pointed out that Nicaragua is the safest country in Central America and its economy will grow in the future. Finnish companies would have a lot to offer to Nicaraguans if only the Finnish products and services were more known in Nicaragua. H.E. wished Finnish companies welcome to visit Nicaragua and learn more about the country and its economy. Organizing a seminar on business opportunities in Nicaragua was also discussed during the meeting.
