“Trade Policy Reviews” analyse the trade policies and practices of each member of the WTO. The reviews consist of three parts: an independent report by the WTO Secretariat, a report by the government, and the concluding remarks by the Chair of the WTO’s Trade Policy Review Body. The opening section - “key trade facts” - provides a visual overview of the WTO member’s major exports/imports, main export destinations, origins for its imports and other key data. This edition looks into the trade practices of Nicaragua.



Concluding Remarks by the Chairperson of the Trade Policy Review Body, H.E. Mr Eduardo Muñoz Gómez at the Trade Policy Review of Nicaragua 4 and 6 December 2012

This third Trade Policy Review of Nicaragua has improved our understanding of the trade and investment policies and practices of Nicaragua, of how they have evolved since the previous Review in 2006 and of their outlook. Areas have been highlighted where significant progress has been made, as well as those where there is room for improvement. We are grateful for the active participation of the Nicaraguan delegation, led by H.E. Mr Orlando Solórzano, Minister of Development, Industry and Trade. We also thank Ambassador Carlos Robelo Raffone, Permanent Representative of Nicaragua to the WTO, and the other members of the Nicaraguan delegation. Our discussions have been equally enriched by the insightful comments of the discussant, Ambassador Mario Matus, and by the numerous statements of Members. The timely and detailed answers provided by the Nicaraguan authorities to the questions submitted in advance were appreciated by Members.
