Arbitration panel is sought in dispute with El Salvador

Costa Rica is seeking the creation of an arbitration panel under the rules of the Free Trade Treaty with Central America and the United States.

The issue is the continuing refusal of the country of El Salvador to apply duty preferences to Costa Rican imports, said the Ministerio de Comercio Exterior.

Commerce officials have been in talks with their counterparts in El Salvador, and the arbitration panel is the next step in the complex process that will end with a ruling by the free trade commission set up under the treaty.
