Business environment in Nicaragua

Nicaragua's economy will continue to be driven by agricultural and manufacturing exports. Nicaragua remains a challenging place to do business with inefficient state institutions and systemic corruption. The country remains dependent on funding from foreign donors, especially Venezuela, and international financial institutions to address its large current account deficit. More foreign direct investment is needed to cover the external deficit, as concessional funding from Venezuela declines. President Ortega's re-election in 2016 ensures policy continuity and his dominance over the political landscape.
