Description of the Online Course: Economy and Foreign Trade of Central America

The Central American region consists of Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama.

Owing to the recent political and economic integration in Central America (Central American Common Market, Central American Integration System (SICA), CARICOM) in this analysis we include the Dominican Republic, geographically linked to the Caribbean, but economically linked to Central America.

All these countries belong to the Latin American Economic Area of the Western Christian Civilisation.

The Central American Economy (the sum of the economies of all countries in the region), represents the sixth largest economy in Latin America (after Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, and Peru).
