Costa Rica holding its own on exports

Costa Rica has posted a half point increase in exports over the 12 months ending in February, the Promotora del Comercio Exterior has reported.

That’s good news because the 12 months started up with a dip in exports due to economic conditions, the organization said.

Agricultural products, including yuca, watermelon, eggs, cheese and fresh fruits all showed strong increases. There also was an increase in exportation of all goods to European counties.

Sugar with total exports of more than $12 million showed an incredible 1,104 percent increase.

Some industrial products also show increases, according to the report. The principal recipient of Costa Rican products was North America with 41 percent of the total. Europe received 18 percent and Asia, 13.2 percent, the promotional organization said.
