Honduras

Honduras is among the fastest-growing markets in the Central American region, accounting for $588.5 million in U.S. agricultural exports in FY 2013. U.S. wheat exports to Honduras reached a record $86.3 million in 2013, and pork also set a record at $49.4 million.

The United States works with Honduras both bilaterally and through the CAFTA-DR agreement to promote mutually beneficial trade and investment.Since CAFTA-DR went into effect there in 2006, U.S. exports to Honduras have roughly doubled. For the past decade, FAS has delivered technical assistance and worked to improve agricultural capacity in Honduras through several programs, including the Borlaug and Cochran fellowship programs, Food for Progress, and the McGovern-Dole Food for Education Program.
