Brief Economic News from Guatemala

Promoting cruise ship tourism: The Guatemalan Tourism Institute has been formed to promote the country as a destination for Caribbean ports-of-call.  Guatemala already has sixty-two stops booked for the new cruise season "which will generate foreign exchange and boost the economy of communities and provide an incentive for tourist services in the area."  Unsurprisingly, one of the factors holding Guatemala back from becoming an important destination is public insecurity.

This season's blackberries have begun export to the US, EU, and other states of Central America.
