A computerized system is being prepared in order to control the volume of exports to Europe by each Central American country, within the provisions of the Partnership Agreement.

Monday, August 6, 2012

An article in Laprensagráfica.com reports that "Central America is working on the adoption of a computerized system which will keep track of the volumes of cargo that each country in the region exports to Europe under the quotas that were agreed in the Agreement Association (AA). "

Negotiations have still not been finalised for the distribution of export quotas to the European Union, granted to Central America as a whole, which will be carried out in the context of the Council of Ministers of Economic Integration of Central America (COMIECO).

The proposed system will allow each country to regulate their exports to the European Union within the quotas allocated to them.
