Trade barrier summary

The Guatemalan Public Private Partnership (PPP) law establishes that when a contract is granted to a company, after going through the local agency's due diligence, Congress needs to approve the contract, thereby lengthening the process. Since 2010 when the law was approved, only one project has reached this stage (2018-2019). At the moment, reforms to this law are being proposed.
