A Chinese team is in the country to study the inspection system of the Servicio Nacional de Salud Animal.
Costa Rica already exports milk products and beef to China. Officials hope for approval to export other products.
The team will be in the country until June 3, said the animal health service.
Among other locations, the team will inspect the service’s labs. Also due for inspection are fish farms, processing plants and slaughter houses, said the service.
Officials hope that the team will issue a certification to the country.
