The Government works to solve the problems of the country’s coffee sector
The Minister of Agrarian Development and Irrigation, Jennifer Contreras, stated that the Government will implement a plan to be able to export coffee from small producers, without any restrictions, to the markets of the European Union (EU).
“We are going to implement a plan that is adapted so that our coffee growing brothers can sell their coffee, without any restrictions in the EU , because we are not going to allow their products (coffee) not to enter that market and if we have to adapt any regulatory framework “We will do it because the Government works to solve their problems,” he said.
