Nicaragua: Barriers Remain for Beans Export

The agricultural ministry announced that there is no reason to remove the additional requirements for the export of beans deployed in October 2010.

Friday, February 18, 2011

The National Dry Bean Commission and the Association of Producers and Exporters of Nicaragua have reported these non-tariff barriers, arguing that they are unjustified and are causing serious economic losses to processors and marketers, who have been forced to cancel contracts with international buyers. reports that marketers request the export of at least 50 thousand quintals of beans, but the ministry insists that there are no restrictions, although in reports by the State Center for Export Procedures (CETREX ) "it is clear that not a single bean has been exported so far this year."
