Some 100 visiting Chinese business representatives participated in a working breakfast where they were courted by Costa Rican officials Wednesday.
Luis Liberman, a vice president, and Anabel González, minister of Comercio Exterior, talked about the advantages and opportunities of investing in Costa Rica.
Liberman noted that Costa Rica is the first country in the region to have negotiated a trade treaty with China, and that Costa Rica has a number of such agreements with other countries. This gives investors here preferential access to about 70 percent of the global economy, he said.
The country also was suggested as a place for making clothing with materials from China.
Later in the day the visitors had a chance to talk with persons from specific industries.
