Honduras and El Salvador Agree to Unite Customs
The presidents of both countries agreed that when Sovereignty Bridge (on the El Amatillo border) is opened, they will sign the Central American Customs Union.

Sovereignty Bridge is being built 150 kilometers southeast of Tegucigalpa with funding from the Japanese government. It is expected that work will be completed in the short term.
An urgent call is being made for greater efforts to be undertaken between Guatemala and Honduras and between Panama and Costa Rica, with the ultimate goal of creating a much needed Customs Union.
At the same time that they are making the final step in the elimination of the border for the passage of goods, both countries are calling on the rest of Central America to do the same.
Starting next week both countries will eliminate their borders to allow for the movement of merchandise and people, as a part of the integration process.
Central American representatives have approved various technical regulations for the regional customs union.
