December 11, 2018 - December 12, 2018

On December 11-12, 2018, in Washington, DC, CLDP & ITA hosted a Guatemalan delegation from the Ministries of Economy, Customs, Health, and Agriculture, for a two-day technical exchange on optimizing operations through intergovernmental cooperation and centrally-published information. During the exchange, the delegates met with their U.S. counterparts from the Department of Commerce, Customs and Border Protection, Health and Human Services, and the Food and Drug Administration to learn best practices for coordinating across trade ministries and publishing trade-related information in a non-discriminatory, easy to access manner. With support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Guatemalan delegation interacted with US companies doing business in Guatemala, and shared respective efforts to encourage trade through greater transparency. This workshop is part of a multiphase effort to promote transparency, cooperation, and coordination within the Guatemalan government, and to improve interregional trade in Central America.
