Bean exporters complain about government restrictions
The National Bean Commision of the Association of Manufacturers and Exporters of Nicaragua (APEN) has requested the government of Nicaragua to lift the barriers imposed two weeks ago on the export of beans, which have brought losses to producers.

According to Félix Miranda, chairman of the committee, the "delay" has caused economic losses because the quality of the product decreases day by day, which reduces the price. It also discourages producers and makes them lose credibility with its customers who look to other suppliers, reported the online edition of La Prensa.
The barriers on the export of the grain to Costa Rica and El Salvador have disappeared, and producers expect to sell about 200,000 quintals abroad.
Nicaraguan producers say that despite government promises, there are still barriers to exporting about 25 million quintals of good quality grain.
The lifting of restrictions on bean exports has revealed a harsh reality as previous buyers are being supplied by other vendors.
Given the restrictive measures taken by Nicaragua, bean exporters announced the total loss of the U.S. market.
