The Promoter Organism of Exports and Investments (PROESA), along with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), inaugurated today the VI Business Meeting “A world to export 2019”.  


Both institutions unite their efforts with the purpose of promoting the exportable Salvadorian supply to potential international buyers in order to expand it to new markets, through the execution of the event. This activity is supported by the Ministry of External Relations through the Embassies and the Program of Economic, Commercial and Tourism Counselling. 


In the VI Business Meeting, around 100 national companies, from the food and beverages, agroindustry and diverse manufacture sectors will have the opportunity to do business, create connections with potential partners, and concretize exports with international businesses that visit El Salvador.


It is expected to develop more than 200 business meetings during the event, in which 100 Salvadorian companies will meet with 20 potential buyers, coming from the United States, Canada, Greece, Guatemala, Panama, Spain and Ecuador, to show their exportable supply and to establish commercial relations in the short, medium and long term.
