US government praises Nicaragua's freer trade
The US government is commending Nicaragua for its continued trade liberalization and integration into the global economy under the Sandinista government of President Daniel Ortega.
Nicaragua has continued to make solid advances to promote free trade and economic integration since its last review in 2006, a year before Ortega returned to power, said Deputy US Trade Representative, Michael Punke.
The US trade official noted that the U.S-Central American free trade agreement has doubled bilateral trade between the United States and Nicaragua since 2006.
