DTB AgriTrade offers business support to clients for certain trade policy-related activities. We provide administrative support for several export trading companies (ETC) that manage tariff rate quotas and provide funds for capacity building and market development. Funds are provided through proceeds from auctioning tariff rate quota share.
For example, we operate an ETC, which was formed by the poultry industries of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and the United States as part of the Central America Free Trade Agreement to administer U.S. poultry shipments to Central America. DTB also operates similar poultry ETCs established under the U.S.-Panama and the U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreements.
DTB also advises exporters and importers on rules and regulations applying to shipments of agricultural products to and from the U.S. market and can provide support on other trade-related business functions as needed.
