NO to Tariff on Imports From Colombia

639x360_1422413273_RODRIGO CALDERA (37)TODAY NICARAGUA – Nicaraguan industrialists pay more than their competitors in other Central American countries for the Colombian raw material they consume.

The 35% charged for “patriotic duty” on imported products from Colombia is affecting the performance of the productive sector and taking away competitiveness from Nicaraguan in the region. The business sector is once again demanding the elimination of the tariff particularly for the materials purchased by industrial companies.

Rodrigo Caldera, President of the National Chamber of Industries (Cadin), told Elnuevodiario.com.ni that “… The same Colombian raw material purchased by Nicaragua costs less in other Central American countries, which is why there is demand for these products to be released from the tax. ”

He added that “… ‘There is already a firm judgment from the International Court in The Hague, what exists is a contempt by the Government of Colombia to honor the failure that occurred and what we are asking is that products used as raw material for the domestic industry be free of such tax.'”
