China Won't Negotiate Sugar with Costa Rica
China has an adamant stand against the entry of Costa Rican sugar to its market, in the negotiations for the Free Trade Agreement.

Although this may not completely exclude the product from the treaty, it might complicate the negotiation, said Marco Ruiz, Costa Rican Trade Minister.
The country would request excluding products from the Free Trade Agreement only in very justifiable cases.
Three years after breaking relations with Taiwan, Costa Rica signed a Free Trade Agreement with China.
Chilean experts are giving support to Costa Rican authorities to prepare for the FTA that the Government plans to begin negotiating with China in less than six months.
In this round both parties expect to close a number of chapters, including national treatment, food health measures, intellectual property and cooperation.
