Tuesday, October 4, 2011
Before the 17th of October, the planned date for signing the agreement, negotiations in these areas must be concluded.
By the end of the year the countries are scheduled to meet in order to include services, intellectual property and public sector contracts in their Free Trade Agreement (FTA).
Costa Rica will export sugar duty free when supply in the Mexican market is insufficient.
Starting from July 1 the trade agreement with Mexico, a country with which trade reaches $10 billion per year, came into effect.
Costa Rican exporters view positively the inclusion of new products to the FTA with Mexico, with the possibility of establishing regional production chains.
