Mexico needs to import sugar after harvest stricken by drought. Central America has covered shortfalls in the past but not this year

Friday, August 5, 2011


\ A severe drought has reduced the Mexican sugar harvest. Mexico’s exports to the United States have had to be reduced while its imports will have to be raised, just when Central America is also facing a similar drought problem.\ \ The proximity of Central America makes it a natural supplier of exports to Mexico.\ \ Guatemala, the main producer of sugar in Central America, has frequently met Mexico’s needs for imports in the past. But this year is different.\ \ Original source (in Spanish): Reuters\ \ \ \
