A vibrant country, Honduras prides itself on continuous economic growth through the recent years. With an average of 7% economic growth per year (regarded as the highest in Latin America), this signals many great opportunities for the citizens of the country. Many Hondurans are working overseas today, helping their country maintain the economic growth.
