Canada and Honduras inked a free trade agreement on Tuesday, which Canada's trade minister said will boost his country's southbound agricultural exports.
Canadian Trade Minister Ed Fast and his Honduran counterpart, Jose Adonis Lavaire, signed the deal in Ottawa.
The agreement must still be debated and approved by the Canadian Parliament and Honduran Congress.
Once it is fully implemented, tariffs on 98 percent of exchanged goods and services will be eliminated, according to a statement.
