IDB approves financing for the feasibility study for reactivating the railroad system in the region for cargo transport.
Participating in the dialogue to obtain financing was Eduardo Calix, Vice Minister of Foreign Affiars and Presidential Commissioner for the Mesoamerica Project (MP), who attended the MP Executive Committee meeting where IBD agreed to provide $300,000 in support of the project.
In negotiations on an association agreement with Central America, the European Union has improved its offer by proposing to increase the number of products that will enter Europe under the enhanced Generalized System of Preferences (GSP Plus).
Eduardo Cálix, El Salvador's deputy foreign minister and Central America's current regional spokesman on political matters, said that recognition of the International Criminal Court (ICC) was no longer an issue. The European Union would allow time so that each country's legislature can officially recognize the ICC's authority, he added.
