Nicaragua Resumes Meat Exports to Panama

Authorities from both countries have managed to remove the obstacles to Nicaraguan meat entering Panamanian territory.

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Nicaraguan cattle farmers argued that Panama's auction system discriminates against them and fails to reflect market conditions.

"We have been discussing ways to circumvent these procedures with Panamanian authorities since both countries are keen to widen trade between us," Orlando Solórzano, the Nicaraguan Minister for Development, Industry and Commerce, told La Prensa.

Douglas Reyes, president of Nicaragua's Center for Export and Investment (CEI), added that during the discussions significant steps were taken toward improving trade that could lead to increases in sales to Panama of around $5 million.
