Honduras: a land of opportunity welcomes investors
With a stable democracy and a business-friendly economic environment, Honduras is making the most of its central location in the Americas.
Secretaría de Finanzas - República de Honduras
Located at the heart of the Americas, Honduras offers a strategic opportunity for investment in fields ranging from manufacturing and tourism through agriculture to banking and telecommunications. The democratic government with pro-investment attitudes and policies creates a welcoming environment for foreign investors in all sectors and sizes.
In recent years, Honduras has consistently proved to be an attractive destination for foreign direct investment (FDI). Between 2004 and 2008, Honduras received greater inflows than similar economies, making it the leading destination for FDI relative to GDP in Central America. Honduras holds the 30th place in UNCTAD’s Inward FDI Performance Index, above not only the rest of Central America but also regional and world leaders.
Location, location, location...
Only a two-hour flight or 48 hours by sea from the US, Honduras has an enviable proximity to the largest market in the world. This advantage is magnified by the presence of Puerto Cortes, the largest and most efficient of Honduras´s seaports, on the Caribbean coast. It is the only deep-water port in the Central American isthmus and the first in Latin America to be certified by both the US government´s Container Security Initiative (CSI) and its Megaports Initiative.
