Costa Rica's exports dropped last year on Intel loss

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Costa Rica’s exports of goods last year totaled $11.2 billion, representing a 2.4 percent decrease compared to the $11.5 billion registered in 2013, the Foreign Trade Promotion Office reported.

Foreign trade officials attributed the drop in sales to the closure of Intel’s manufacturing plant, as the company’s microprocessors represented some 15 percent of the country’s total exports.
