    Background: The President of Costa Rica, Senor Jose Figueres, visited the President of Ecuador, General Rodriguez Lara, in Quito recently, to try to establish a common stand among banana exporting countries. They both expressed the wish to see the living standards of their agricultural workers raised.

    After the meeting the Ecuador Minister of Industry and Commerce said that Ecuador was determined to gain the best possible terms for her banana exports on the international market.

    Bananas are a major export in both countries. Their production is largely controlled by the United States company, United Brands.

    Other major banana producers in the area are Panama, Guatemala, Hondaras and islands in the Caribbean.
