From October 18 and for the following 18 months, 38% tariff will be charged on polypropylene products from Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras and El Salvador.

Polypropylene is added to other products from Central America who are subject of disputes with the Dominican Republic, due to tariffs imposed on products such as wires, juices, paper, plastic and cardboard.
Dominican Republic continues with tariffs on polypropylene exports from Central America.
By eliminating the tariff of 38%, conditions for the export of tubular fabric and polypropylene bags to the Dominican Republic return to normal.
The WTO has provisionally determined that the measures imposed by the Dominican Republic, charging tariffs of up to 38% on imports of certain products from the region, are inconsistent with its trade obligations.
The report argues that tariffs on Central American imports imposed by the Dominican Central on tubular fabric and polypropylene bags, of up to 38%, are in violation of its rules.
