The country’s small and medium businesses will be on display at Expo PYME 2016 April 22 to 24 in the Antiguo Aduana in east San José.
Pymes means pequeñas y medianas empresas or small and medium enterprises. There is an official registration of such businesses with the Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Comercio, and registrants are entitled to special treatment as government vendors and special lending programs.
The ministry said that some 50 stands will be maintained by government agencies and financial institutions. There also are workshops for such topics as intellectual property rights, innovation and business strategy.
The ministry said that several marketing experts for other countries would attend to give presentations.
Also planned are encounters with individual firms and potential buyers set up by Promotora del Comercio Exterior Costa Rica. Some 150 buyers are expected, said the ministry.
