EU banana proposal does not suit the region

Tuesday, January 27, 2009
Nacion.com reports: "The Costa Rican Minister of Foreign Trade, Marco Vinicio Ruiz, did not provide details on the European proposal as they are still in negotiations and the Isthmus has to respond this week.
The proposal of the European Union is to lower the current tariff from 176 to 114€ per ton between 2009 and 2019.
The agreement between Europe and Latin America generated optimism, but ACP countries and the U.S. must still be pleased.
This was the official posture of a delegation from the European Parliament, in a visit to Costa Rica.
Costa Rica ruled out the possibility of reaching an agreement for reducing European tariffs to banana this week.
