Friday, December 30, 2011

Costa Rica will take advantage of its free trade agreement with China to strengthen its commercial ties with other Asian countries in 2012, Costa Rican Trade Minister Anabel González said.

The trade ministry will make efforts to enable more Costa Rican businessmen to export their products to China through the agreement, which took effect in August 2011, González said in an interview.

The minister stressed that China is important to Costa Rica. "Tastes and choices of the Chinese have diversified, and consumption trends have been enlarged during the last years. New products, like coffee, are being consumed in China," González said.
