Costa Rican Food Group Explores Chilean Market

The 10-company food consortium participated in a multi-sector Trade Mission to Chile in March.

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

The visit, organized by the Costa Rican Foreign Trade Promoter (Procomer), allowed the Costa Ricans to initiate contact with Chilean entrepreneurs for an eventual entry of their products to the South American country.

Additionally, the visit served to "push Procomer to open a trade office in that city to promote and strengthen trade negotiations as it has done in the United States, Panama and the Dominican Republic. Procomer believes that the office could open in two months, as was indicated by Ileana Gonzalez."
