Rambutan, mangosteen, mango, cardamom, achiote, pepper, and other fruits and vegetables, are the products that are being offered in several Chinese cities.
A statement from the Costa Rican Trade Promotion Office (PROCOMER) reads:

In order to open new markets for Guatemalan agricultural exporters, representatives from the Guatemalan Association of Exporters (AGEXPORT), public-private institutions, the PACIT trade program and entrepreneurs will be on a mission to Asia, from the August 31 to September 10.
In 2008, France and Italy were incorporated as new destinations for the export of exotic fruits.
El Periódico publishes in its website: "´It was the year with greatest growth in production and, for this season, a 20 percent increase is forecasted,´ adds Luis de Paz. Besides ´rambután´ the business produces mangosteen, khaki (persimón) and medlar. Lafinita, which counts on more than two decades of being in the market, has planned to arrive in places such as Germany, Holland and Spain in addition to France and Italy."
