Businesses want region's customs offices eliminated

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Businesses in Central America are calling for the elimination of customs posts in the region.

They believe that the border points and customs offices in are limiting their work and making them less competitive despite the fact that they have been selling products to each other for over a decade.

"We cannot continue to be a region where trade is moving at 15 kph when developed countries have cargo moving at 60 kmph," said Jorge Daboub, president of the Federation of Private Entities of Central America, Panama and the Dominican Republic.
