A Costa Rican information and technology group will sign cooperation agreements with its Indian counterpart on the betterment of business relations and promotion of the technology industry in both countries.
Leaders for both the Costa Rican Chamber of Information and Communication Technology (CAMTIC) and the Indian Chamber of Commerce of Information and Technology (NASSCOM) met last week while attending the World Software Fair held in Calcutta.
CAMTIC president Alexánder Mora and his counterpart, NASSCOM president Suparno Moitra, discussed the potential interest of the technological industries in both countries in developing joint initiatives.
Both groups exchanged ideas of how to interact with the academic sector as well as the government in both countries, and discussed the possibility of bringing Indian businessmen to participate in the upcoming Costa Rica Services Summit 2009, to take place during the first week of June, Mora said in a statement this week.
The summit will promote business interchanges between Costa Rican companies and the international technology sector, medical tourism, audiovisual and entertainment, as well as the construction and architecture sectors.
The group from Costa Rica visiting India last week consisted of representatives of five technological companies, CAMTIC and the Foreign Trade Promotion Office (PROCOMER).
Mora said NASSCOM has an interest in developing human resources and was particularly interested in the opportunities that the Central American Free-Trade Agreement with the U.S. (CAFTA) and the upcoming European agreement represent to Costa Rica.
