San José, Costa Rica. The Chamber of Information and Communication Technologies (CAMTIC) reiterates to the public its support to the establishment of a free trade agreement between Costa Rica and the Republic of China.
This business association, which brings together companies of information and communication technologies (ICT) in Costa Rica, bases its support on the following arguments:

a. The agreement will allow Costa Ricans consumers to have a huge range of products at lower prices, stimulating competition and expanding their choices.
b. The agreement will allow the Costa Rican companies to export with privileged access to the most populous country and fastest growing market on the planet.
c. The business sectors that comprised CAMTIC, including digital components manufacturing, software development, ICT-enabled services and complementary and telecommunications, have huge potential to grow and benefit from a free trade agreement between Costa Rica and China.
d. CAMTIC agrees with the principles, objectives and mechanisms that sustain the treaty negotiation and how the Ministry of Foreign Trade of Costa Rica (COMEX) has led the negotiation process.
e. Given the huge asymmetries between the economies of Costa Rica and China and the challenges that have been shown to Costa Rica in its trade with this giant, CAMTIC believes that a free trade agreement with China is the most appropriate legal instrument to set limits and terms protection on sensitive issues to the national interest, including the quality of products entering Costa Rica from China. CAMTIC advocates parameters of quality for consumer protection.

Finally, CAMTIC calls to colleagues in some industrial subsectors and the Ministry of Foreign Trade of Costa Rica (COMEX) to open a dialogue process in the light of the principles of the national common good, avoiding customized arguments or radical positions.
