Tuesday, June 4, 2013

From an article by the Costa Rican Trade Promotion Office (PROCOMER):

On Wednesday May 22 this year, both the General Director of the Ministry of Livestock, Agriculture and Fisheries of Uruguay (MGAP) Alberto Castelar, and the Director of the International Affairs Unit Alejandro Mernies of the same ministry announced a new breakthrough in international integration as part of the Government's strategic guidelines in market diversification.This news was that Panamanian food safety authorities have given permission for six facilities to export Uruguayan bovine dairy products to that market.

This is being viewed as a radical improvement for the prospects of Uruguayan dairy exports with a focus on the Central American market defined as interesting by Mernies, which advocates a greater access of these goods to Panama.
