Why Honduras?

There are many reasons Honduras is an exceptional location for investors, and they all have to do with the vast scope of resources and services we have to offer:

Under the National Investment Promotion Program, Honduras has implemented a new legal and institutional framework to attract and protect foreign and domestic investments. Government agencies have strengthened the enforcement of laws and regulations, increasing the rate of compliance, and improved the processes and requirements that protect domestic as well as foreign investments.
Investor-friendly
Legal Framework
Thanks to our participation in DR-CAFTA, Honduras is a Free Trade Zone. This offers significant advantages to international investors, not the least of which is the tax exemption.
Free Trade
Zones
Located in the very heart of the Americas, Honduras borders the Caribbean Sea as well as the Pacific Ocean, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. Our strategic location gives us direct access to multiple global markets and allows us to be a critical air and maritime transportation nexus for international business.
Honduras offers a strategic opportunity for investment and serves as a distribution platform for Central America and the U.S.
Strategic
Geographic Location
Port: Puerto Cortés is the only deepwater port in Central America, and the only port in Latin America that qualifies for both U.S. government port security initiatives: the CSI and Megaports initiative. As one of the region’s largest and best equipped sea ports, Puerto Cortés offers competitive shipping costs to the U.S.
Highways: Thanks to a public-private partnership, our road infrastructure is scheduled to be upgraded by 2016 with a 106-km, four-lane highway connecting San Pedro Sula to Naco, Cortes.
Power: The national initiative to secure renewable power sources includes the El Tablon project, a multipurpose 18 MW hydropower plant with a reservoir of 467 million cubic meters. The project is already attracting interest from local and foreign companies, including firms from Colombia and Israel.
Modern
Infrastructure
With the support of companies such as Green Valley Industrial Park, the Honduran government has implemented specialized programs designed to train a potent bilingual workforce skilled in industries such as medical device and automotive component manufacturing, light assembly, food and agribusiness, and textiles and apparel.
As a result, our people have proven to be more productive than those of neighboring countries, including the U.S.: for example, inautomotive component manufacturing, we can claim 40% higher productivity compared to North America). This gives Honduras a key competitive advantage thatany international company performing due diligence for an overseas manufacturing base should consider.
