Costa Rica exports down 15 percent in 2015
The total value of export goods from Costa Rica last year fell by nearly 15 percent compared to 2014. However, trade officials attributed the decline to the closure in 2014 of Intel’s microchip assembly plant, something that’s come to be known as the “Intel effect.”
When excluding sales abroad of electronic components, the decline in exports was just 0.1 percent.
