Oct 24, 2014 - Canadian firms will visit Honduras next week to study opportunities for investment and trade in the renewable energy sector, Honduran daily El Heraldo has reported, quoting Juan Osorio from the local association of small-scale clean energy generators.
Seven Canadian companies, working in the field of hydroelectricity, products and services for projects and LED lamps, will participate in what will be the first trade mission since the bilateral free-trade agreement came into force on October 1, Osorio said.
The event will take place in Tegucigalpa city on Monday and Tuesday.
