José Orive, Executive Director of Sugar Producers of the Central American Isthmus (AICA, acronym in Spanish) noted that: “Europe continues to be reluctant to change their position.”
The region has defined the allocation of 150,000 tons of tariff-free sugar quotas granted by the EU.
On Friday 30 July the region will share out the 150,000 ton tariff-free sugar quota granted by the EU.
The region must now define how to distribute the import and export quotas negotiated with the European Union.
The new offer increases the quota for sugar from Central America that can enter the European Union without tariffs to 100,000 tons.
