Nicaragua: Barriers Remain for Beans Export
The agricultural ministry announced that there is no reason to remove the additional requirements for the export of beans deployed in October 2010.

The National Dry Bean Commission and the Association of Producers and Exporters of Nicaragua have reported these non-tariff barriers, arguing that they are unjustified and are causing serious economic losses to processors and marketers, who have been forced to cancel contracts with international buyers.
Panama, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico continue to hinder the importation of beef from Nicaragua.
Although Nicaragua has eliminated barriers to exports, producers want a quota of 500,000 quintals of beans for export, instead of the 200,000 quintals currently allowed.
As with the case of beef with other countries, Honduras has placed phytosanitary restrictions on 20,000 pounds of sausage from Nicaragua, which is being disputed by exporter Delmor S.A.
Nicaragua's government aims to become the nation's leading exporter of beans if it can seal a deal to sell 125,000 quintals (1 metric quintal = 100 kg) to El Salvador.
