In preparation for Enterprise Florida’s Export Sales Mission to San Jose, Costa Rica scheduled for February 26 - March 1, 2018, you are invited to join us and our trade partners as we host a Business Opportunities in Costa Rica Roadshow around the state of Florida.
Bilateral trade between the U.S. and Costa Rica totaled $10.2 billion in 2016, where Florida was the leading state for two way trade. Costa Rica ranks as Florida’s 12th largest merchandise trading partner with nearly $3.6 billion in total trade and nearly $2.5 billion in exports alone in 2016. Costa Rica holds vast opportunities for Florida companies interested in increasing their footprint in the Central American market.
Facilitated by the U.S.-Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR), the U.S. has become the chief trading partner for Costa Rica and exporters benefit from eliminated tariffs and barriers. Florida companies are well-positioned to benefit from these opportunities. See what they can mean to your business! The guest speaker for this event is Mr. Eric Wolff, Regional Senior Commercial Officer, U.S. Embassy in San Jose, Costa Rica.
This roadshow is an excellent opportunity for companies to learn more about:
- The economic, political, and social environment of the country.
- Best export opportunities for Florida companies.
- How companies can participate in Enterprise Florida’s Export Sales Mission to Costa Rica.
A limited number of one-on-one appointments with Mr. Wolff will be available after the briefing on a first-come, first-served basis. To reserve a one-on-one appointment, please email John Diep at firstname.lastname@example.org.
