Extracts from SPS Committee meeting summary reports

In March 2005, Mexico observed that Guatemala had imposed restrictions on the transit of avocados. Progress had been made recently in finding a solution to the problem, and Mexico would monitor the issue bilaterally and in the context of the Regional Organization for Agricultural Health (OIRSA). Guatemala confirmed its willingness to continue working on this issue with Mexico.
