Highland Farm Freight Carriers Keep Some Tracks Closed; there is no agreement with the government

A group of agricultural cargo carriers maintain this Wednesday, some roads closed in the province of Chiriquí, while the police authorities try to dialogue with them so that they allow the free transit of international cargo, trucks and the passage of other vehicles.

Riot police officers remain vigilant to prevent further chaos and disorder on the roads. The protesters are with their trucks to block the roads.

The truck drivers and producers from Chirica did not reach an agreement with the Ministry of Agricultural Development at the meeting on Tuesday, where they rejected the proposal for a fuel bonus at $3.95 per liter of gasoline.

Among its demands are the freezing of the price of fuel, a reduction in the cost of accessories (tires) and supplies for the harvest.

In recent hours, no trucks with legumes and vegetables have passed from the Highlands to the national markets, mainly in Merca Panama.

For his part, the Minister of Agricultural Development, Augusto Valderrama, who heads the high-level commission of the National Government, called for them to reflect and return to dialogue to continue evaluating their requests for the benefit of all.
