December 17 Trade agreement moves forward

By | January 01, 2004
Representatives from the United States, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua recently agreed to the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), according to the RFA.

In the past, Central American countries have been grouped with Caribbean countries under the Caribbean Basin Initiative, which created the current import rules for ethanol. The new agreement won't affect the countries' ability to sell ethanol to the U.S.

The CAFTA will be pending before Congress this year. EP
