Deputy Jose Figueroa, Member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, said the agreement “is called a partial scope agreement, because it is not a Free Trade Agreement (FTA’s include all of the goods and services of the products of each country) in the case of Nicaragua and Ecuador, only a list of products is included. This agreement, on the other hand, removes all the tariff and non-tariff barriers to facilitate and promote trade between the two countries.”
