Canadian firms seeking trade deals

Representatives of Canadian food marketers will be in Costa Rica Thursday  seeking to expand their activities here, according to the Canadian Embassy.

The country has a 14-year-old free trade treaty, and Costa Rican firms exported $578 million to Canada in 2014. Canada exported goods worth $152 million the same year, said the embassy.

The trade discussions will be in the Hotel Wyndham Garden in Escazú.

Canada is known for its grains, oils and sea food products a well as beef and vegetables, the embassy noted.

Ambassador Michael Gort cited in a release the commercial relations as a key element in the socioeconomic development of Costa Rica.
