In an interview with Daily Expreso Jose Antonio Camposano, President of the National Chamber of Aquaculture, speaks of optimistic entrepreneurs who hope that this year the trade agreement with the European Union takes effect.
Camposano said that there is no time left ” The time is over when neighboring countries signed the agreement two years ago.”
The European Council must approve the protocol of accession of Ecuador to the agreement. Usually, this takes six to seven months, because there are 28 countries and different languages, and each minister has to verify if there is no affectation for his country. Otherwise, October or November will arrive and the last plenary of the European Parliament will be held on December 15.
