Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Costa Rica’s foreign trade minister, Anabel González announced, that her country’s free trade agreement with Peru with Peru would go into effect in July of next year, once Costa Rica’s legislature approved the agreement.

She noted that trade with Peru had increased in recent years, and that the two markets had great potential for growth.

Bilateral trade between the two countries reached $50 million, a figure that could double or even triple after the accord comes into effect, she said during the China-Latin America Business Summit.
