Costa Rica: bananas outside EU trade agreement

Tholen - The Costa Rican government will request the European Commission to leave bananas out of considerations when negotiating a trade agreement between the EU and the Latin American block of countries. As a reason for this, the lack of a common viewpoint on the issue of banana exports is mentioned. Costa-Rican minister of Foreign Trade, Marco Vinicio Ruiz is quoted saying that the subject should be resolved in the next World Trade Organization round, which will be held in June or July and is to end before December 2006
