Meat import costs rise in Mexico:

Mexican importers now have to pay more for importing meat into the country, after the department of economy and public finance authorized a 12.9% rise in license fees for meat and vegetables. The national chamber of commerce said that this would affect consumers in the city of Juarez, as a lot of foods there are imported. The fee for a phytozoosanitary import certificate has risen by 13% to Peso 1,468 (US$133) this year, says the agriculture ministry, Sagarpa, in a statement sent to the customs authorities in Juarez. Armando Prado Rojas, manager of external business at the local chamber of commerce, said that this measure would result in high inflation and taxes. He says that taxes on public services, medicines, beer and other products should be abolished to counterbalance this rise in import license fees.
