In the wake of the looming threat of the Nicaraguan Investment Conditionality Act (NICA Act) — a U.S. bill that is set to impose economic and financial sanctions on Nicaragua — the country is looking for alternatives.

According to Nicaraguan economist Luis Gustavo Murillo, the Central American nation should focus on looking for new investors, a challenging prospect for a country that received US$623 million of financing from multilateral banking entities for social projects in 2016.

The Act, approved earlier this month by 25 lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives, and which will now move on to the U.S. Senate for debate, seeks to impose conditions on Nicaragua when accessing financial loans from international institutions or the United States.

According to another economist, Cirilo Otero, if the NICA Act were approved, it would undoubtedly affect free trade agreements between the United States and Nicaragua.

The bill, promoted by the country that funded far-right paramilitaries to overthrow the popular revolutionary Sandinista government in the 1980’s, launches accusations at the government of Daniel Ortega for “violations of human rights and regression of democracy.”

Nicaragua has responded to the Act by slamming the United States for violating its sovereignty.

icaragua finds itself “faced with regressive, interventionist, and disrespectful positions on the part of certain North American congresspeople that still have not overcome conflicts and interests that are inconsistent with the will and peace of the people,” the Sandinista-led government’s statement said.

Cuba and Venezuela have also expressed solidarity with Nicaragua in the face of the Act.
