Nicaragua insists on bigger quotas under Central American trade accord with Europe

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Nicaragua's private and government sectors agreed their country must have higher export quotas than the rest of the Central America countries under the upcoming association agreement with Europe.

Nicaragua should be given preference, since it was the country that negotiated the agreement in Brussels, said the Nicaraguan trade minister, Orlando Solórzano.

Central America is to export 9,500 tons of meat each year, plus a special 5,000-ton quota for Nicaragua.
