On Business

Exports are a key source of economic growth. Traditionally products like coffee, meat, and sugar topped the export list, the fastest growth is now seen in items like textile and apparel; gold; seafood; and new agricultural products such as peanuts, sesame, melons, and onions. Tourism has become more important to Nicaragua’s economy in recent years. Mining, fisheries, and general commerce are also expanding.
