Dean Garcia, executive director of the Nicaraguan Association of Textile and Apparel (Anitec), told Elnuevodiario.com.ni that “… the Peruvian company Hialpesa, will be investing $15 million in its operation in the country and will supply other free zone factories that produce shirts. Garcia said … they are currently installing machinery, but did not say when they will start operations. ”
