Costa Rica sees big opportunities in FTA with Panama
The elimination or reduction of tariffs for exports to the Panama market under the FTA will be a big help to ease the crisis in 2009.

Practically all sectors have opportunities in the market, representatives of the various chambers all agreed in separate declarations.
The expected growth projections for Panama that emerged after the ratification of NAFTA have not been achieved.
Starting January 1, the tariff benefits agreed to in the FTA that came into effect in November will be applied to products from both countries.
Costa Rica legislators should approve the agreement this week at the latest after the second debate on the commercial agreement with Panama.
Legislators have to ratify the decision in a second round of voting once the period of ordinary sessions start next week.
