Nicaraguan fruit and vegetable exporters in protest

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Nicaraguan horticultural producers fear they'll disappear due to what they called "unfair competition" caused by excessive imports that coincide with their crop cycles.

They also demand transparency in the amounts used to authorize the entry of foreign products from the government.

In addition to the excessive imports, producers also claimed that the products are being smuggled, thus, compromising plant health throughout the territory and also added that every production cycle"there is the disorganized arrival of more importers".
