Negotiations are underway for a voluntary agreement to channel excess supply of wood in the Honduran market by exporting it to the EU with legal certification.
"... With the European Union we are negotiating a voluntary agreement to export timber and open the market which today is very insignificant, less than 2%, but we hope that in the future it will be the largest source of Honduran timber exports," said José Trinidad Suazo, executive director of Forest Conservation Institute (ICF).
The funds donated by the E.U. will be used for the implementation of the Forestry Sector Modernization Project of Honduras (MOSEF).
An article in the Latribuna.hn explains: "The resources provided by the E.U. will fund social programs for production and conservation of forest areas using organizational management processes and natural resource management."
As part of the Agritrade Platform, Guatemala will participate for the 27th time in PMA Fresh Summit, the most important international trade show and convention of fruits and vegetables in the United States, which will take place at Anaheim Convention Center, California from October 17th to 19th.
