The negotiations were held in San Francisco and were attended by officials from South Korea and the six Central American countries – El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and Costa Rica.
The participants discussed a range of issues, including rules of origin, trade in services and investment, technical barriers to trade, and sanitary and phytosanitary measures.
The negotiations are expected to be completed in the second half of this year. The first round was held in September 2015.
Trade between South Korea and the six Central American countries reached USD5bn in 2014, according to South Korea's Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy.
