According to data from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), agricultural exports from Honduras to the United States market have increased in recent years to 900 million dollars.
Ana Gomez, a specialist of the USDA, said that “Honduras exports more agricultural products to the US than the US exports to Honduras.” She also highlighted the increased demand for vegetables and fruits, such as melon or rambutan.
The United States continues to be Honduras' main trading partner. Between January and November 2019 there was an imbalance of 2.413 billion dollars, according to data from the Central Bank of Honduras (BCH). Despite this, trade relations between the two countries have been maintained. Exports account for 35.7 % of the total and imports account for 34.8%, leaving a deficit of 1.853 billion dollars.
