The Civil War forced many Guatemalans to start lives outside of their country. The majority of the Guatemalan Diaspora is located in the United States with estimates ranging from 480,665 to 1,489,426. The difficulty in getting accurate counts for Guatemalans abroad is because many of them are refugee claimants awaiting determination of their status.
Guatemala has a democratic and representative government conformed by the Executive Branch (President), Legislative Branch (Congress) and Judicial Branch (Supreme Court). Each citizen has the right to vote and is free to exercise such right. Álvaro Colom Argueta is the sixth Constitutional President of the Republic elected democratically in 2007. He is committed to the sustainable economic and social development of the country.

Organic coffee, sugar, textiles, fresh vegetables, and bananas are the country's main exports. Inflation was 5.7% in 2006.
The 1996 peace accords, which ended 36 years of civil war, removed a major obstacle to foreign investment, and since then Guatemala has pursued important reforms and macroeconomic stabilization. The Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) entered into force in July 2006 inducing increased investment and diversification of exports, with the largest increases in ethanol and non-traditional agricultural exports. While CAFTA has helped improve the investment climate, concerns over security, the lack of skilled workers and poor infrastructure continue to hamper foreign direct investment.
