Costa Rica is going to revise its export target before this month is out, Foreign Trade Minister Marco Vinicio Ruiz announced.
Friday, July 18, 2008
The target was set at the beginning of the present administration but since then sales of industry and agriculture have slowed down. Melon producers, in particular, have been severely hit by bad weather.
Medicines, textiles, melons, palm, foliage and leaves, have experienced significant declines in the value of exports in recent years.
$5 billion were exported from January to July, 13.3% less than the same period of 2008.
In April, a total of $121.2 million were exported, compared to $154.2 million during the same period last year.
In the first seven months of 2010 exports were down 6.1% over the same period of 2009.
