Guatemala: Guatemala to Change Tariff Lines for Chicken Leg Quarters

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

FAS Guatemala has learned that the Ministry of Economy (MINECO) will eliminate select tariff lines currently being used to import U.S. poultry leg quarters duty free outside of the CAFTA-DR Tariff Rate Quota (TRQ). This will force U.S. poultry to enter under an out-of-quota tariff of 12.5 percent. The policy change will affect over $55 million of chicken leg quarter exports that the United States sends to Guatemala each year.
