Brazilian Delegation Visits, Discusses Trade, Investment
A group of representatives from the Brazilian-Costa Rican Chamber of Commerce (CCBCR) visited Costa Rica last week to explore the possibility of investing here and increasing trade, according to a statement from the Foreign Ministry.
The group was made up of the chamber’s president, David Cruz, and two vicepresidents, Vanda Miranda and Samir Assad. During their six-day visit, they met with representatives from organizations including the Chamber of Exporters (CADEXCO), National Tourism Chamber (CANATUR), National Oil Refinery (RECOPE) and Foreign Trade Promotion Office (PROCOMER), the statement said.
They discussed with representatives from these organizations the possibility of sharing Brazilian ethanol-production technology with Costa Rica as well as collaborating on biofuels and tourism. Additionally, they planned for a Brazilian commercial mission to travel here during the next few months to promote their country’s exports.
The chamber was created July 6, 2006, during a meeting in Sao Paulo. Its object is to “promote the advantages and opportunities Costa Rica offers the Brazilian investor and business owner.”
