Guatemala and U.S. delay labor enforcement plan

Friday, April 25, 2014

Guatemala and the U.S. agreed to delay for four months the evaluation of the development of a labor enforcement plan, part of the framework of a free trade agreement.

"We struck a deal to extend the deadline four months, after which the U.S. can decide if the plan is satisfactory and make any changes it considers appropriate," said Guatemalan Labor Minister Carlos Contreras.

The United States is Guatemala's main trade partner, with Guatemalan exports reaching $3.9 billion last year.
