Fourth Round of China - Costa Rica FTA Begins
Costa Rica will request greater access for 'special interest' products like meat, sugar and coffee.
Monday, September 7, 2009
Accordingly, it will ask China to define what 'special interest' products it will include in the negotiation.
Disagreement arose among industrialists and Comex, over a request for excluding a number of products which are not produced in the country and enjoy zero tariff.
Costa Rica is offering to free a 70% of all tariffs while China demands an offer similar to theirs, which is 95%.
In the third round that begins today, Costa Rica seeks to negotiate an agreement that would impede excessive importing of products from China.
The first offer by China for the FTA left 6% of tariff lines undefined, including the most important ones for Costa Rica.
