The Ministry of Economy has extended the June 21 deadline for a further 3 months.
Luis Velasquez, Minister of Economy, told the media that, if necesary, they will consider a further extension.
According to an article in Prensalibre.com "He added that they need to investigate what the appropriate time frame would be so as not to harm domestic production, taking into account that the harvest begins in September."
