Costa Rica foreign trade mission promotes country in China, India

September 6, 2013

Foreign Trade Minister Anabel González kicked off a business tour of five cities in China and two in India to promote trade and investment to Costa Rica.

Officials also will present the new concept of a national brand, “Essential Costa Rica”, launched last Tuesday.

The China tour includes the cities of Xiamen, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Dalian and Beijing, and González will be accompanied by Costa Rica’s Ambassador to China, Marco Vinicio Ruiz, the Trade Ministry’s director of investment, Irene Arguedas, and the director of international relations at the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency, Pilar Madrigal.

“We will invite Chinese businesses to participate in the VII China-Latin America and Caribbean Business Summit set to be held in Costa Rica in November,” González said.

After the China tour the mission will travel to India, where they will visit Bangalore and Delhi.

In India the tour will include promotional events at business fairs and meetings with potential investors, particularly in the services sector.
