Costa Rican trade mission to visit India

March 5, 2012

A trade and investment mission of some 30 Costa Rican entrepreneurs will be visiting India to strengthen trade and investment relations, local news site The Indian Express Online reported Monday.

The team, led by Foreign Trade Minister Anabel González, will visit New Delhi on a five-day trip beginning March 19, accompanied by members of the Foreign Trade Promotion Office and the Costa Rican Investment Board.

 “The global competitive scenario is changing, and emerging economies are increasingly contributing to the expansion of trade and investment, and creating new opportunities for countries worldwide,” González said.“Costa Rica wants to participate in these new opportunities, so we’ve started to explore areas of common interest with India.”

In New Delhi, González will meet with Indian Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Commerce Secretary Rahul Khullar.

She is also expected to have meetings with Indian industry chambers, and is the guest of honor at INDIASOFT 2012, a trade expo.

“There is great potential for strategic alliances between Costa Rica and India in the area of business-processing services, knowledge-processing operations, digital animation and software-development sectors, among others,” González said.
