Costa Rica sets sights on vegetable exports following trade treaty with Europe
Costa Rica has set its sights on increasing vegetable exports to Europe following negotiations over a free trade agreement with the European Union.
External trade minister Anabel Gonzalez said cassava and chayote are currently important exports and that the country was looking to increase exports of carrots, tomatoes and peppers, initially to the US.
The EU is the second most important market for Costa Rica, taking some 47 per cent of its total agricultural exports.
