Nicaragua will Exceed 1.5 Billion Dollars in Direct Investment

Nicaragua this year expects to exceed 1.5 billion dollars in direct investment in sectors like manufacturing, agriculture and energy, today said the delegate of the Presidency for these issues, Álvaro Baltodano. The official said to El 19 Digital that the Sandinista government struggles to raise the amount of investments during 2014, taking into account the conditions presented by Nicaragua in terms of economic stability, development and security.

The investments will impact the energy sector, but also telecommunications, textile and harnesses manufacturing, processing of milk, meat, planting and harvesting of bamboo as raw material for construction, among others, he said.

Nicaragua has become an attractive country that offers growth trends and significant, positive economic numbers, Baltodano said.
