As part of a restructuring plan, operations are now concentrated at the Miami office.
The Minister of Foreign Trade (Comex) Anabel González, told Elfinancierocr.com, "The most important thing is that we are doing a strategic strengthening of the Miami office. This allows us to close the other offices."
The Foreign Trade Promoter (PROCOMER) has reopened the Trade Promotion Office (OPC) in Chile.
This office opened its doors for the first time in 1999, when Costa Rica signed a free trade agreement with Chile. However, a few years ago PROCOMER decided to close it in order to establish a new business strategy that would revive the Costa Rican exports to the South American country.
The new office will operate in Tel Aviv in a mixed format which will integrate the functions of trade promotion with the Embassy of Costa Rica in the country.
From a statement issued by PROCOMER:
Tel Aviv - San Jose, September 26, 2016.With the aim of promoting an approach and laying the foundation for the commercial promotion of Costa Rica in the State of Israel, September 26 saw the conclusion of the visit by Minister and Chairman ofthe Foreign Trade, Alexander Mora Delgado, to the cities of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
