China-Latin Am trade summit is scheduled for Costa Rica

Costa Rica will be the location for the VII Cumbre Empresarial China-América Latina y el Caribe Nov. 26 and 27.

The announcement came from Promotora de Comercio Exterior de Costa Rica, the trade promotion organization. The sessions will be at the Hotel Real Intercontinental in Escazú.

Some 800 participants are expected, said the organization. The meetings will include conferences and negotiations for trade deals.

Other sponsors include the Ministerio de Comercio Exterior, the Coalición Costarricense de Iniciativas para el Desarrollo, the Consejo para la Promoción del Comercio Internacional de China and the Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo.

These annual sessions have been taking place since 2007 with the location alternating between China and one of  the countries of the Americas.
