Nicaragua Affected by Honduran Conflict
Honduran protests next to the Nicaraguan border cause daily losses of $1 million to exporting companies.
Tuesday, July 28, 2009
José Adán Aguerri, president of the Nicaraguan Superior Council of the Private Enterpise, informed today that in the border post of Las Manos there are over 250 containers stockpiled. These have cargo for Honduras, but cannot go through because of the protests by followers of deposed president Manuel Zelaya.
Citing lack of a seal to determine origin and product quality, the Nicaraguan industry is against eggs being imported from Honduras.
The Nicaraguan side is all ready for cargo transported to and from the port of Limón to save 250 kilometers, but the poor condition of a section of road in Costa Rica is preventing it.
The Superior Council of Private Enterprise opposes the proposed "patriotic tax" of 35% on Costa Rican products and services.
Alternate paths were authorized for Nicaraguan cargo stuck at the border, in order to reach Port Cortés in Honduras.
