Leather Exports to China

Costa Ricans are opening the way in the Chinese market, relying on a sanitary protocol that is being defined in FTA negotiations.

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Traditional markets for the export of hides, leather and fur such as the United States and Europe have reduced product purchases by over 50%. In the first quarter of this year, Costa Rica exported $7 million worth of the product, while exports were $17 million during the same period in 2008.

In the face of this situation, the negotiation of the Free Trade Agreement between China and Costa Rica makes the Asian giant a target market for leather exporters.

An article in Elfinancierocr.com stated: "Exporters are relying on a sanitary measure protocol that both countries are defining and that has not yet been signed by the Ministers of Agriculture. The director of the National Animal Health Service (SENASA), Yayo Vicente, expects it to happen later this year. "
