Mexico blocks the entrance of textiles from Guatemala

At least 20 containers of clothing have not been able to enter Mexico due to actions from the Administrative Tax Service.

Friday, November 28, 2008

The reason is that SAT suspended the Mexican companies that import from Guatemala from the the list of importers, complained Sergio Lopez, administrative manager of the Clothing and Textiles Commission (Vestex).

Close to US$4 million in products are stuck at the border with Mexico (Tecun Uman), and they cannot enter the country.
