Monday, February 21, 2011
The announcement was made by the head of the Ministry of Agriculture, Guillermo López Suárez.
The country has already seen 180,000 hundredweight of beans arrive on its shores this year, 40% more than in the same period in 2010, which has stabilized prices.
To meet domestic demand, the government announced the import of 9.000 tons of red beans from China.
The Ministry for Farming has still not managed to import the amount of beans necessary to cover the national supply shortage.
In order to ensure domestic supply and prevent price hikes, the government has announced it will import beans and corn.
