The article reports on the booming imports market in Latin America. Construction and mining equipment exports to all of Latin America totaled almost $2.66 billion last year, a 28% increase over the past five years. And it is a trend that seems to be gaining speed. The region has shown a remarkable recovery from the financial crises of the late 1990s and early 2000s. In 2004, the region's economic growth reached a 24-year high of 5.6%. Pending bilateral free-trade agreements with various countries also may give exports a push if they receive a green light.
