Costa Rica and Peru Strengthen Trade Relationship

Officials from Costa Rica's exporting companies formalized opening the Andean market by signing two agreements.

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

They were signed as part of the visit to Costa Rica of a Peruvian trade delegation, headed by Martín Pérez Monteverde, Commerce and Tourism Minister.

"Peru is one of the main trade partners of the South American region. Manufacturing is the main activity, in which three sectors stand out: food, chemical and textile, representing 60% of this industry".

The agreements were signed by the Peruvian-Central American Chamber, the Peruvian Exporters Association (ADEX), and the Costa Rican Exporters Chamber (CADEXCO).
