Chinese Team Arrives To Study Free Trade

January 11, 2008

The Chinese are back. This time the delegation met with Costa Rican counterparts for three days this week to study the possibility of forming a free-trade agreement between the two countries.

A release from the Foreign Trade Ministry said the feasibility study will likely take six months to complete.

China is Costa Rica’s second largest trade partner, after the United States. Costa Rica last year shipped more than $1 billion in goods to the Asian giant. Costa Rica switched diplomatic recognition to China in June after more than 60 years of friendship with Taiwan.
