About Invest in Honduras/ FIDE

In 1984, a group of Honduran business people were convinced that the most efficient way of contributing to Honduras’ growth and development was by attracting foreign investment to the country, to modernize and improve the productive sectors. Based on this vision, they created the Foundation for Investment and Development of Exports (FIDE).

Through the years, Honduras and its people have changed.  FIDE has been a key element in these transformations adapted itself to them and striving for a positive impact for the country.  Honduras is a country in continuous economic growth, that offers multiple opportunities for the investor, producer, and most important, for its citizens.  Honduras has a young, enthusiastic, creative and skillful population that is ready to enter the labor market and contribute to the production and growth of companies.

FIDE works with all sectors and actors of the country, recognizing its uniqueness and diversity towards the growth and development of Honduras, while adapting to the new conditions in the international environment.  In this way, our actions are aimed at generating spaces for businesses and supporting producers and companies to adopt these changes, promoting their growth and development.

With the work performed by FIDE we have contributed to the country´s development by attracting foreign investment.  The northern region of the country currently has the most modern cluster of apparel and textile manufacturing in the Central American and Caribbean region, as well as a major automotive electronics cluster.

FIDE continues to sustain the initial values with which it was created, as well as the knowledge it holds to attract foreign investment to the country and to promote the exports of Honduran products, continuing to support the growth and development of Honduras.
