President signs China treaty

President Laura Chinchilla signed the free trade agreement with the People’s Republic of China Monday. The legislature passed the document May 31.

Witnessing the event was Wei Chuanzhong, vice minister of quality, supervision and quarantine for China. He signed an additional protocol that eventually will see Costa Rican beef going to China. Although beef is included in the trade treaty, additional paperwork is needed due to the sensitive nature of the product.
