The chairman of the Higher Council of Private Enterprise (COSEP), José Adán Aguirre, said that Nicaragua should be in the negotiations, that is why he urged the government to participate in the meeting to be held in Brussels next April 23 and 24.

In remarks to Elnuevodiario.com.ni, the President of COSEP said that "Nicaraguan entrepreneurs consider it urgent for Nicaragua to continue in the negotiations because about 25% of its exports go to Europe, including ethanol and sugar, 'we cannot jeopardize investments and trade’."
