CAFTA-DR AND MARKET ACCESS
CAFTA – DR was ratified by the Nicaraguan National Assembly in October, 2005. This historic agreement creates the second largest free trade zone in Latin America for U.S. exports. Once implemented, CAFTA – DR will eliminate eighty percent of the tariffs immediately, with the remaining tariffs phased out over 10 years.
CAFTA – DR makes Nicaragua an attractive platform to export to the US.
Under this treaty, Nicaragua enjoys unique market access and tariff preference levels (TPL). Nicaragua is the only country covered in the pact to receive the TPL benefit, which means that up to 100 million square meters equivalents (SME) of fabric coming from any part of the world may be used to assemble garments in Nicaragua that will enjoy tariff-free access to the U.S.
According to World Trade Organization (WTO) requirements, Nicaragua will be one of the few countries in the world to offer fiscal incentives to exporters after 2008.
Also CAFTA-DR means free and immediate access of 100% of industrial goods and 95% of agricultural goods (i.e. fruits, vegetables, fish and sea food, furniture and wood products, leather, among others) and access through special quotas to other agricultural products such as sugar, peanuts, peanut butter, meat and dairy products.
The Herdocia & Garcia Abogados/ Calvet & Associates alliance utilizes the expertise of free trade agreement specialists to ensure clients receive the full benefits allowed under the terms of CAFTA – DR and other free trade agreements ratified by Nicaragua.
