Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'This study provides a balanced and serious evaluation of the trade and development challenges facing Central America in the next decade, especially those associated with DR-CAFTA. And there is a sobering and timely message within these pages. DR-CAFTA offers great opportunity, but it is no magic potion. Capitalizing on the opportunities andd mitigating the costs depends critically on the success by the Central Americans in developing an effective domestic agenda and handling the ensuing economic and social restructuring. The study provides useful guidance toward this objective, including how best to assist vulnerable groups. It is an indispensable reference for policy makers and social actors in the region and for international partners who wish to help Central Americans fulfill thier hopes and dreams.'--Jose Manuel Salazar-Xirinachs, Executive Director of the International Labour Organization's Employment Sector, Former Minister of Trade for Costa Rica

Book News Annotation:

The free trade agreement signed by Central America countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and the US with the Dominican Republic (DR), known as DR-CAFTA has exerted pressures on local firms to acquire investment and take advantage of technology, and has also improved advantages afforded by economies of scale. However, the agreement has also made countries take a closer look at whether their infrastructure, governance and education systems can support intense export business, and in some cases countries must also consider the conditions of small rural producers of sensitive crops or modify political realities. This report addresses the financial and social changes as well as evolution in trade, economic effects, policy approaches, macroeconomics, the results of previous trade policies, domestic reforms, trade liberalization, poverty relief, and priorities for the complementary agenda of the free trade agreement.
