Costa Rica can be a trade hub for China, ambassador says at Xiamen trade fair. Volume reached $3.8 billion last year
Chinese investors seeking a platform to enter the markets of the Americas should consider Costa Rica, given its numerous trade advantages and economic diversity, the country's ambassador to China said.
"The key word of Costa Rica's economy development is diversification. We will shift our efforts from the electronics industry to the high-tech, renewable- and clean-energy industries," Marco Ruiz said during the 15th China International Fair for Investment and Trade in Xiamen.
Statistics from the General Administration of Customs of China show that trade volume between China and Costa Rica reached $3.8 billion in 2010, up 19.2 percent year-on-year.
