PRONicaragua, in coordination with the investment promotion agencies of the region, hosted the first annual Central American Nearshore Summit 2013 whose objective is to promote Central America as an attractive emerging destination which offers excellent investment opportunities for companies looking to expand their operations in order to increase their global competitiveness. The event took place in Managua, Nicaragua on November 7th and 8th.
