TRADE IN COSTA RICA
Costa Rica’s engagement with economic growth and social development has moved the country towards commercial openness, which combined with a series of structural changes, has generated considerable growth in productivity, as well as a major diversification of its economy and a high level of investment.
Costa Rica, exporter of traditional products like coffee and bananas, has gotten to occupy the first place as exporter of high technology products (per capita) in Latin America and the eighth country with higher percentage of exports of information technology and communication globally. Due to the country’s commercial structural changes, its exporting base has diversified itself enormously.
The Ministry of Foreign Trade establishes the country’s commercial policy. The Foreign Trade Promoter of Costa Rica is the agency in charge of assisting in the process of importing and exporting products.
