The article presents an interview with European Union (EU) Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson. According to Mandelson, an advanced level of regional economic integration, ideally with a common external tariff, common rules and free circulation of goods and services within the region, is important for a mutually beneficial bi-regional free trade agreement. In the case of Central America, deeper regional integration would allow the region to attain a critical size in economic terms, offer wider perspectives for operators and become an attractive market for foreign direct investment from the EU.
