Regional Business Sector Rejects Trade Block

The regional business sector rejected SICA’s decision to block trade with Honduras because it would affect all the economies of the region.

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

The closing of Hondurasborders to trade is rejected by the Central American Federation of Agricultural and Agro-Industrial Chambers because it restricts the freedoms of companies, industry, and commerce.

Claudia Acuña writes in Prensalibre.com: “The organization said that this measure is putting Central American families at risk of not getting food by prohibiting the trade of basic goods. Carlos Zuñiga, president of Fecagro, expressed that the political crisis in Honduras should be resolved according to the laws of that country.”
