Sugar Quotas are Responsibility of Central America

The European Union will not mediate in the distribution between the Central American countries of the sugar quota of 60,000 tonnes allocated to the region.

Thursday, September 5, 2013

"The European Union will only check the total regional quota has been reached and will not intervene in how it is distributed among the five Central American countries. The distribution and quota management is an internal matter for the Central American region," said Klara Klanska, commercial counselor of the EU to Central America.

Following the Costa Ricans refusal to concede its sugar assignment, Joseph Adam Aguerri, president of the Superior Council of Private Enterprise (Cosep), said "we lament that the position taken by the Government of Costa Rica, because of the differences it has with Nicaragua relating to the trade issue, which is over the subject of sugar, meant that last week's auction was not successful neither for Honduras nor Nicaragua or for anyone.
