More than 800 business operators to attend annual China-Latin America summit in Costa Rica

November 14, 2013

Business owners from 20 countries will participate in the seventh annual China-Latin America and Caribbean Business Summit, which runs Nov. 26-27 at the Hotel Real InterContinental in Escazú, southwest of San José, Costa Rica’s Foreign Trade Ministry (COMEX) reported.

COMEX said more than 800 business operators from participating countries will hold 150 roundtable discussions, 1,500 bilateral meetings, and five general sessions during the two-day event.

Foreign Trade Minister Anabel González highlighted the activity as one of the most important of the year for the country, and said that “it will be particularly important to strengthen our relationship with China and boost trade and investment with this strategic partner.”

Among the topics to be discussed at the summit are the modernization of trade models, and technological and agricultural development.

Keynote speeches will focus on global trade, bilateral cooperation between cities, and electronic commerce.

The summit is the most important business, trade and investment forum between Latin America and the Asian giant, taking place annually since 2007.

COMEX data indicate that bilateral trade between Costa Rica and China has grown by 70 percent since the entry into force of a free trade agreement signed in 2011.
