Which Countries are Opposed to the Customs Union?

It is time for transparent information to be given on which Central American governments continue to obstruct the essential unification of border formalities.

Wednesday, September 10, 2014


The Council of Ministers for Economic Integration (Comieco) which met in Managua on September 4 and 5 ended, as always happens in these meetings with public officials, with a statement of good intentions including promises to "work on the standardization of procedures at border posts and a regional strategy for trade facilitation," objectives which have been stated often and which up to now are far from being realised.

It would be good if business trade organizations in the region begin to point out which governments are systematically hindering the path to actual Central American economic integration, so as to proceed to put pressure on them, to solve problems of movement of goods between countries of the region and to fulfill the commitment made in this regard by the signing of the EU Association Agreement.
