Efectos potenciales de un Tratado de Libre Comercio entre USA y Centro America sobre el sector agropecuario y agroindustrial de Costa Rica y El Salvador (Spanish)

This report discusses the potential impacts that a Free Trade treaty between the United Status and Central America would have for the agribusiness and financial sectors in Costa Rica and El Salvador, as well as tariff and non-tariff barriers that exports would encounter in US markets. Also discussed are the challenges and opportunities of a Free trade treaty between Central America and the United States, taking into account lessons learned from Mexico's adoption of NAFTA and the need to adopt measures to compensate producers of agricultural import substitutes and other goods determined as vital in the two aforementioned countries. The report concludes with some policy recommendations and a summary of future lines of inquiry which surface as a part of the present study.
