    Abstract

    Aunque la motivación del Tratado de Libre Comercio entre Estados Unidos y Centroamérica (CAFTA) con Estados Unidos es generar beneficios para los exportadores e importadores, es probable que los elevados costos portuarios en la región incidan negativamente en esos beneficios. Los costos elevados, junto con las inquietudes sobre la infraestructura, seguridad, eficiencia y productividad, pueden hacer disminuir los beneficios potenciales del CAFTA. Por lo tanto, Centroamérica debe efectuar reformas jurídicas que permitan la privatización de puertos, dado que el sector privado posee los recursos necesarios para invertir en esos puertos y hacerlos competitivos.
