Chinese companies eyeing Costa Rican market

July 18, 2013

Representatives and managers of 500 Chinese companies will visit Costa Rica in late November to meet with local and regional business owners during the annual China-Latin America and the Caribbean Summit. Costa Rica will host the summit this year. 

The event is organized by the China’s Council for the Promotion of International Trade, the Costa Rican government, private-sector companies and the Inter-American Development Bank.

Business owners interested in showcasing products to the Chinese market can obtain information and register for the event at: www.chinalac-cr.com. Registration is limited to 800 seats, and translators will be made available.

According to officials from the Foreign Trade Ministry (COMEX), Costa Rica has a special interest in linking Chinese companies with local farmers and technology manufacturers.

COMEX hopes to attract some 300 business representatives from the region.
