The final flourish of the Association Agreement between Central America and the European Union (EU) - which consists of three pillars: economic, political and cooperation, is scheduled for between 28th and 29th June in Tegucigalpa, during a summit of Central American presidents.
The Association Agreement with the EU was approved with no negative votes by the Salvadoran Legislative Assembly.
Lack of ratification of the Association Agreement by most Central American countries, has raised questions about the time of its entry into force.
The European Union has requested Central America to resume negotiations for an Association Agreement.
In the next six years, the EU will invest in regional customs strengthening which it considers essential for harnessing the benefits of the AA.
