The 6,330 tons are part of the quota of 8,110 for 2013 negotiated under the framework of the Association Agreement with the European Union.
"Costa Rica is entitled to a quota of 19,464 tonnes, but for 2013 it is 8,110 tons, because the CAAA did not come into effect until October 1st," said Edgar Herrera, executive director of the Agro-Industrial Sugarcane League (Laica) .
Between 2 and 5 years will pass until the Association Agreement with Europe enters into force, but Costa Rican exporters are already studying how to compete in that market.
Being more and more competitive seems to be the basic recipe to effectively compete in the EU’s 500 million person market.
Costa Rican businessmen are already seeking the necessary tools to achieve this indispensable increase in competitiveness: advice and training in how to export to Europe, business networking and adapting their goods to Europe’s demands and preferences.
