2013 was also a year of growth for Nicaragua’s investment, registering an estimate of US$1,500 million in terms of foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows at year end, a 17 percent increase compared to 2012 and marking the highest historical figure the country has ever reached. FDI inflows were mainly from the energy, telecommunications, mines, and industry and trade sectors.
