Iceland is an island country located in the Atlantic Ocean, near the Arctic Circle. U.S. agricultural exports to Iceland amounted to $40 million in 2014. The major products imported from the United States include mostly prepared foods and horticultural products. The booming tourism industry has been noticed by U.S investors, with Boston-based Carpenter & Company announcing that it will manage the construction of the first 5-star hotel in Reykjavik. U.S franchises Denny’s and Dunkin Donuts are looking to tap into the one million plus tourists that pour into Iceland every year. The economic environment of Iceland has been characterized by low inflation and a healthy economic growth rate.
