Monopoly sought for grain imports

Dear A.M. Costa Rica:

You might mention that Costa Rican rice growers would be at a serious disadvantage competing against U.S. government subsidizing U.S. rice growers, while trade treaty prohibits Costa Rica from doing same for its producers!

‘The disadvantage is worsened by Costa Rican business-political interests seeking to corner importation of cheap international excesses thereby doing in local producers. Destroying the local farmer and producer would leave them in permanent control of the market.
