The U.S. represents Guatemala’s largest trading partner, and Guatemala is a net importer. Under CAFTA-DR, 95% of U.S. agricultural exports enter Guatemala duty free. Guatemala eliminated the remaining tariffs on virtually all U.S. agricultural products in 2020 (a few product categories will be eliminated over subsequent years - e.g.; rice and dairy products).
Guatemala is the largest market for U.S. exports of consumer food products in Central America. Guatemala is also the largest U.S. export market for processed foods in Central America after passing Panama in 2020.
