El Salvador to Imported Beans Without Tariffs in 2011

The National Assembly authorized the government to import 1.2 million quintals of beans in 2011.

Friday, January 14, 2011

The decision is intended to mitigate a possible rise in prices of basic grains and other products, considering production was lower than expected due to excessive rains in 2010.

“The measure is ad hoc and temporary and relied on a provision by the World Trade Organization (WTO), which allows temporary deductions of this type of product in order to favor supply," explains Laprensagrafica.com.
