Costa Rica leads commercial mission to South Korea

A delegation of Costa Rican government officials headed by President Luis Guillermo Solís traveled on a commercial mission to South Korea on 11 October 2016 to promote exports and services, and attract investment (El Pais). The main objectives for the mission are to strengthen existing commercial ties, open new opportunities with Korea, and to boost market diversification. Among the activities planned are follow-up meetings with Korean companies who visited Costa Rica in September 2016 during the Buyer Trade Mission (BTM) (CB24). The meetings come just before the end of free trade negotiations between Central America and South Korea, which they expect to complete this year.
